Volunteer opportunity: Competence Evaluation Assessors

Under the Medical Laboratory Technology Act, 1991 the CMLTO Quality Assurance Program (QAP) is composed of three components, one of which is the Competence Evaluation (CE). The CE assessment determines if a member possesses the knowledge, skill, and judgment necessary to meet the standards of practice of the profession. The CE consists of 15 questions verbally administered and answered, using a combination of behavioural-based and situational-based questions.

CE Assessors are appointed by the CMLTO Quality Assurance Committee (QAC) as described by Section 81 of the Health Professions Procedural Code under the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991.

CMLTO is currently looking for MLTs that meet the following requirements to be considered as CE Assessors:
  • Practising member in good standing with the CMLTO
  • minimum of five years of current experience as an MLT
  • cannot be a current member of the CMLTO Council or a Non-Council Committee member
  • recognizes and declares any potential conflict of interest
  • complies with the requirements and responsibilities outlined in the CMLTO Confidentiality form.
Although it is anticipated that the number of CE assessments will be very low, the CMLTO needs to develop a pool of Assessors for when the need arises to conduct a CE assessment. Training will be provided to all CE Assessors.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please submit the CE Assessor Expression of Interest form found here (PDF), along with your professional resume/curriculum vitae, by email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
