CET Completion Deadline 2018

If you still need to complete CET to meet the requirements of the 2016-2018 GOC CET cycle we recommend that you do so as soon as possible. You can search CETpoints.com by profession type, keyword and competency to identify suitable CET to complete. Completing CET early gives you a chance to contact us about any missing CET points should things go wrong. We upload completions to the GOC every week, usually on a Friday. So you should see your points in your GOC account within a week of completing CET with us.

You can complete CET on CETpoints.com at any time. All completions we receive before 12pm on Monday 31 December 2018 will be included in our final upload to the GOC later that day. Any CET completed after that will count towards the 2019 CET cycle.

Interactive CET

If you are looking for interactive CET look out for the (i) logo or search "interactive" to return a full list of CET with interactive CET points. Remember that interactive CET isn't complete until you have carried out the peer interaction and both you and your peer have confirmed the interaction. If you need interactive points this year make sure everything is completed and that you have received on-screen confirmation before 12pm on Monday 31 December 2018.

Accepting "pending points"

Don't forget that you still need to accept any CET points that are "pending" in your GOC CET account after we upload them for them to count towards the 2018 total. This should be done in MyGOC before midnight on 31 December 2018.
