Jurisprudence e-Learning Module now available

The Professional Practice & Jurisprudence e-Learning Module can now be completed online. The module is intended for prospective members of the new College – successful completion of the module is one of the requirements for registration.

JRP Module

The jurisprudence (JRP) module is a learning program designed for adult learners. It presents information about Ontario law that regulated health professionals need to know in order to practise safely and ethically. The module is divided into 16 ‘lessons’ which can be completed in random order and at different times. Total time to complete the program is approximately four to six hours or possibly longer. Each lesson covers a different topic, with question sets appearing at intervals throughout. Information is presented visually on screen and by voiceover (narrator).

The module can be completed in stages – over several days, weeks or even months. All submitted answers will be saved in the system, and you will be able to resume work on the module at your convenience. Failed question sets can be retried as many times as necessary to successfully complete them. A lock-out period of one hour follows a failed question set, to allow the applicant to review relevant learning material.

Successful completion of the JRP e-Learning Module will be required for registration with the College, and normally is completed prior to submitting an application for registration.

Before starting the module, prospective members are advised to read the online document, Professional Practice and Jurisprudence for Registered Psychotherapists – it provides all the background information required. For those who read the document first, the module will serve mainly as a review of the material.

Update February 14: Registration Committee recently announced a change to the timing for applicants to complete the Professional Practice and Jurisprudence Learning Module, an important step to registration with the College.

Previously, an applicant could have successfully completed the Jurisprudence Learning Module three years prior to application for registration with the College. This window will be reduced to two years in the next version of the Registration Regulation.

It is expected that this change will adversely affect very few, if any, applicants. It will, however, enhance the currency of the professional and legal knowledge of those seeking to become members of this College.

To allow for a smooth transition from the 3-year to the 2-year window, Registration Committee will permit all applicants who successfully complete the Jurisprudence Learning Module prior to proclamation of the Psychotherapy Act, 2007 to take advantage of the original 3-year window.
