CSHBC online learning courses cover essential knowledge about regulatory requirements to support registrants and Communication Health Assistants (CHAs). Completion of free CSHBC-authored courses earns credits toward registrants’ Continuing Competency Credits (CCCs) requirements. Completion of UBC IPC on the Run courses and a San’yas Indigenous Cultural Safety Training course also earns CCCs.
CSHBC Online Learning Courses
There are currently four free CSHBC online courses available via the CSHBC Learning Management System (LMS), which includes instructions on getting set up with an LMS account:
- Jurisprudence: Mandatory for new registrants, optional for other registrants.
- Client Consent: Mandatory for new registrants who registered with CSHBC on or after June 29, 2020.
- Documentation & Records Management: Optional for all registrants.
- Flexible Endoscopy for Speech-Language Pathologists: Optional for RSLPs, and mandatory for any RSLP holding the former Certificate E or F wishing to transition to the new combined Certificate E.
For each course completed, you earn 3 credits toward your CCC requirements under CCC Category A3. All CCCs must be self-reported in the Registrant Portal.
All new registrants must complete the Jurisprudence and Client Consent modules in order to be eligible to renew their registration for the first time.
CSHBC Course Access for CHAs
Once a CHA is added to the system, they will receive an email containing their log in information. Following this, they will have access to the courses for one month. Any extension to this access, or a subsequent period of access, must be requested via completion and submission of a new form.
UBC Online Learning Courses
There are also free courses available through UBC’s TBC on the Run portal. To access the courses, you must first create an account and enroll. Each hour (or portion thereof) for courses completed will be counted as 1 CCC (if a course takes 45 minutes to complete it will be counted as 1 CCC). Registrants must report these credits in the CSHBC Registrant Portal.
San’yas Indigenous Cultural Safety Training Courses
The San’yas Indigenous Cultural Safety Training Program is developed and offered by San’yas Indigenous Cultural Safety Training, Aboriginal Health Program, Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA).
As part of CSHBC’s commitment to making the health system more culturally safe for First Nations and Aboriginal People, the College’s Quality Assurance & Professional Practice (QAPP) Committee has approved the following San’yas course on an equivalent basis to CSHBC-authored courses:
- Indigenous Cultural Competency Training for Health Care Providers – Core Health Training (3 credits, which registrants must report in the CSHBC Registrant Portal by submitting the San’yas Indigenous Cultural Training, Provincial Health Services Authority certificate for “Indigenous Cultural Competency Training for Health Care Providers”.)
For more information about the Core Health Training course, see the San’yas Anti-Racism Indigenous Cultural Safety Training website.
RAUDs, RHIPs, and RSLPs can enroll directly via the San’yas Indigenous Cultural Safety Training website, on the registration page for the course.
When completing the registration steps, registrants must ensure they select the course titled Core Health, Indigenous Cultural Competency Training for Health Care Providers. Other courses offered by San’yas are not approved for CSHBC CCCs.
Payment of the $250 course fee is made to the PHSA Aboriginal Health Program.
