Get Involved with the College: Become a Peer and Practice Assessor

The College is looking for practitioners to conduct Peer and Practice Assessments. The assessments are an integral component of the Quality Assurance (QA) Program.

Peer and Practice Assessors are members of the College who review other practitioners’ practice and assess their knowledge, skill and judgment. This is to promote continuing competence and to ensure that practitioners are meeting the current standards of practice. Assessors conduct on-site assessments and record reviews. They prepare reports for the Quality Assurance (QA) Committee in accordance with established tools and procedures. The assessment process is intended to be transparent, educational and supportive.

  • Terms: Assessors are appointed by the QA Committee for a two-year term with an opportunity for reappointment.
  • Time commitment: A practice assessment is approximately four hours in length (plus any required travel time). An assessor may be asked to conduct one to four assessments a month, depending on their availability.
  • Remuneration: Assessors are remunerated on a flat fee/per diem basis. Travel expenses related to assessments are reimbursed according to the College financial policies.
  • Training: The College provides newly appointed Assessors with training and standardized tools that are used in the assessment process.
