The CPL Portfolio Cycle is a two-year professional learning process that members will repeat throughout their careers. ​​​

​ ​

This video will guide you through the process of completing your Continuous Professional Learning Portfolio Cycle. ​​​


CPL Portfolio Components ​


Important Information Before you Begin​

It is highly recommended, but not required, that RECEs refer to the handbook when completing the necessary portfolio components. 

CPL Portfolio Handbook


The CPL Portfolio Handbook is an instructional guidebook to support RECEs in completing the required components of the CPL Portfolio. The portfolio components are included at the back of the handbook.

All renewing RECEs will be mailed a copy of the CPL Portfolio Cycle Handbook  during their membership renewal month for the year that they are required to begin the portfolio process. However, if members do not receive a CPL Portfolio Cycle Handbook in​ the mail during their renewal month, they are still required to begin the portfolio process by accessing the portfolio components on the website.
The required portfolio components include:

  • ​Self-Assessment Tool 
  • Professional Learning Plan
  • Record of Professional Learning ​
If you do not receive the CPL Portfolio Cycle Handbook in the mail during the month in which you are required to start, please contact the Professional Practice Department.               

​ ​​

Receiving Copies of CPL Portfolio Handbook

All RECEs are mailed a copy of the CPL Portfolio Handbook​ in the month that they renew for CPL Portfolio Cycle: Year One.

You can also download for free a copy of the document here.

Printed copies of the publication are available for $5.00 plus shipping. To order copies, please complete this order form.​
