Continuing Competence Model
A model for jurisdictions
In many jurisdictions, requiring licensees to take continuing education (CE) courses has sufficed as a demonstration of competence. However, the literature around the topic of continuing competence (CC) does not support continuing education as the sole determinant of ongoing competence.
There are many ways to maintain and acquire skills that are as effective, if not more effective than attending a continuing education course. Advocacy groups, such as the PEW Commission and the Citizen’s Advocacy Center (CAC) support greater efforts to address competence, not just continuing education.
