The Canadian Kinesiology Alliance (CKA) and the Provincial Kinesiology Associations (PKAs) understand how confusing it may be to try to dissociate the difference between many organizations and their services, such as the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) and any other certifications. This document attempts to clarify them as for their status, their scope of practice and their services i.e. insurance, continuing education seminars, etc.
Here are brief answers to frequent questions:
- Are the CKA and CSEP doing the same in terms of organizations?
- Do I have to maintain my certification with CSEP? Do I have to pay double contribution: membership fees, insurance fees, etc.?
- What is the difference in scope of practice? Why does CSEP not cover the entire scope of Kinesiology?
- What is the difference in Professional Liability Insurance (PLI)? Does CKA/PKA insurance fully cover me?
- Will my professional judgment as a CEP be lost if I do not renew my certification?
- What are the benefits to becoming member of PKA/CKA? What other services give me the CKA/PKA?
