The CFTA recognizes that there is more than one way to acquire the requisite skills, knowledge and abilities to practice an occupation. This means that although there may be different pathways in education, training and experience across jurisdictions, the learning outcomes and competencies required to practice an occupation may be similar.
In addition, through post certification requirements, regulators have mechanisms or tools to monitor newly certified members and assist them in performing to required standards. Once certified in another jurisdiction, a worker is expected to meet upgrading and professional development requirements of that jurisdiction. The same conditions imposed on workers of the receiving jurisdiction will apply to this worker.
