NBAD Update – February 5, 2020

Continuing Competence Program (CCP) Questions
CCP submission is just around the corner (during renewal, March 1 – March 31) and questions are flowing in! The Quality Assurance Committee members are volunteer Registered Dietitians who can offer you coaching and assistance on the CCP process. Please submit your questions to qacomite@gmail.com

Member Question #1
I would like to enter my 2020-2021 learning goals online, but can’t find where I should enter them. How do I enter them?
Answer: You can only add your next year’s learning goals (2020-2021) during the registration renewal process during renewal time (March 1 – March 31).

Member Question #2
Do I need to use the CCP Member Workbook?
Answer: The CCP Member Workbook is strongly encouraged to be used by members to complete the Step 1 – Self-Assessment in order to determine their learning goals and to draft their CCP submission. During renewal, you will enter the Competency and Performance Indicator that your learning goals relate to and you can “copy” and “paste” your learning activities and self-reflection from the CCP Member Workbook to the online form. The NBAD online database is a reliable tool; however, technology can sometime have its moments. It is best to have a saved draft than to enter the information directly on the online database.
