Are you an MLA/T who has passed the MLPAO Certification Exam? As an MLA/T Member, you qualify to use our cMLA/T^MLPAO credential that acknowledges you are a health care professional who has met the provincial standards, and you are maintaining continued competence and professionalism.


Credentialed MLA/Ts are included on our MLA/T Certification Registry, which is searchable by potential and current employers.  This new credential also requires MLA/Ts to submit 7 hours of Continuing Education throughout the 2021 year to ensure you are maintaining standards and keeping your professional knowledge up to date.


Guidelines: Workshops, conferences, participation on committees, laboratory inspections, online learning, and many other activities can be counted towards these requirements. Click here for a full list of Continuing Education activities.


PLEASE NOTE: If you are a student who wrote and passed the exam in 2021, you do not need to upload hours in this year. Your CE requirement will begin in 2022, with 7 hours due by December 31, 2022.
