In anticipation of their second year (i.e.: terms 4 -6 in the program), students must ensure that their Clinical Preparedness Permit (CPP) is up-to-date and ‘stamped’ by Synergy Employment Services before the deadlines. Please note that students who do not have their CPP stamped the deadlines may be prevented from proceeding to their clinical placement: Terms 4 and 5 deadline is August 30th and the Term 6 deadline is mid-April.
Your CPP must show that all immunizations, vaccines and your TB Test are up-to-date, that you have recertified your CPR certificate, and obtained a new Police Vulnerable Sector Screen (VSS) reference check. Below are the steps you need to take in order to get your CPP completed and stamped by the deadlines.
For Terms 4 & 5:
STEP 1: Apply for your Police Vulnerable Sector Screen (VSS) reference check. If you need a VSS reference check from the Toronto Police Service, the form must be obtained from and signed by NPCO staff. Be aware that all police services charge a fee for processing a VSS reference check and it may take up to 12 weeks for them to process your application. For police regions that require a letter confirming your student status, please contact the NPCO.
STEP 2: Update your annual TB Skin Test. If positive, you will require a chest x-ray.
STEP 3: Obtain copies of your vaccines and immunization laboratory results. Follow the instructions in the CPP if you require any doctor’s notes. Get required vaccines updated.
STEP 4: Update your annual CPR for Health Care Providers. You can register for your recertification at www.synergy-employment.com/yorkcpr.
STEP 5: Schedule your CPP Stamping appointment with the SYNERGY at https://synergygateway.com/yorkuniversity/.
STEP 6: Attend your CPP Stamping Appointment with ALL required documents in order to get your CPP stamped.
STEP 7: Provide NPCO with documentation in the late fall after having completed your annual flu shot. Note: detailed instructions will be emailed to you in mid-October.
For Term 6:
Repeat all of the proceeding steps, as required.
Note: Visit the NPCO with your CPP if you are unsure of updating aspects of your CPP.
