Continuing education credits

Each health professional who is a member of a college or association must complete continuing education hours (CHE) annually. Here is some information about kinesiologists, physiotherapists and physiotherapy technologists (T. phys).

Kinesiologist, FKQ

All accredited members of the Fédération des Kinésiologues du Québec (FKQ) must accumulate 30 credits of recognized continuing education every two years from the year of their accreditation. These credits can be obtained from continuing education offered by the FKQ and/or other organizations recognized by the FKQ. In order to facilitate your task of analyzing the credits granted to your training, the FKQ Continuing Education Committee gives you access to an equivalency grid.

For each* of your training courses at Bia formations, you will receive a certificate of participation confirming the number of hours of training received.

*Excluding training not accessible to kinesiologists, this exclusion will be mentioned in the prerequisites of the training description

Kinesiologist-physiotherapist, A.K.K.K.O.M.Q.

All members of the A.K.K.K.O.M.Q. must accumulate continuing education credits. The association intends to ensure the safety and quality of kinesiology and kinesiology-kinesitherapy interventions, by requiring its members to maintain and improve their knowledge through the many continuing education courses offered annually, and to put their skills into practice while respecting the code of ethics. Credits can be obtained from continuing education offered by the FKQ and/or other organizations recognized by the FKQ.

For each* of your training courses at Bia formations, you will receive a certificate of participation confirming the number of hours of training received.

Physiotherapist and physiotherapy technologist, OPPQ

In the case of physiotherapists, each member must have a minimum of 45 hours of continuing education (CHE) during the reference period, which is three years. Of these 45 hours, at least 30 hours must be accumulated in formal learning activities. The remaining continuing education hours can be accumulated in autonomous, formal learning activities or in a combination of both categories.

An HFC is equivalent to one hour of training, which is the actual time spent by the member to acquire or update his or her knowledge or skills. In the context of a formal activity, the member is in a learning situation when acting as a participant. Time spent on breaks, meals or any other activity without academic content should therefore be subtracted from the calculation of HFCs.

A formal learning activity is defined as an activity designed and delivered by experts in the subject matter and with a predetermined structure, content, objectives and duration. All the training offered by Bia formations are therefore likely to be considered as a formal learning activity. During your training at Bia formations, you will receive a certificate attesting to the number of hours of continuous training granted to the event.

Then, it is the physiotherapist's role to define whether the suggested training theme is related to his or her practice and will allow him or her to optimize his or her professional competence.
