Prevention of Sexual Abuse eLearning Module

All kinesiologists registered in the General Class are required to complete the Prevention of Sexual Abuse e-Learning Module at least once.


The module will help you better understand what constitutes a boundary violation and sexual abuse, how to recognize warning signs and  how to act on them to protect the client; and what to do if boundary violations occur. The module will also help you understand your mandatory reporting obligations and how to respond to concerns of sexual abuse appropriately. The module contains multiple choice practice scenarios to help test your knowledge and identify opportunities for improvement.. The module is not designed to cover every potential practice scenario, but rather to get you thinking about these issues.


Completion may be counted as a learning activity for your learning plan. Certain topics, such as prevention of sexual abuse, are critical to delivering patient/client-centred care, and require the College to encourage mandatory learning. By completing this module, you are demonstrating your commitment to improving your practice, which increases the public’s confidence in kinesiology.
It should take you between one and two hours to complete the module, and you may complete it at your own pace individually or with a group.
