Frequently Asked Employer Questions
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions by employers.
I’m looking to hire my current CLXT student. What are the requirements for the employer as well as prospective employee?
An prospective employee who has completed NAIT or Sask Polytech training and has the opportunity of employment prior to challenging the ACCLXT Provincial Examination and may be registered on the Temporary register.
ACCLXT Temporary permit applicants:
- Must have applied and are registered to write an upcoming sitting of the ACCLXT Provincial Examination.
- Must have completed an approved program of study.
⇒Recognized as a licensed CLXT, and may legally sign CLXT after their name and assume accountability and responsibility for their practice
⇒Practice within the policies of the employer and may complete applicable education in the employment setting
⇒Must comply with the CLXT Regulation, Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics of the profession.
⇒Must identify and seek guidance and direction when they find situations that are beyond their competence level
⇒Can practice under direct, indirect or indirect remote supervision, at the discretion of the supervising regulated professional. The level of supervision must be agreed upon by both the supervising regulated professional and the Temporary Registrant.
Direct, indirect and indirect remote supervision involves the following:
Direct supervision means a registrant is present in the practice setting at the point of care. This means that the regulated member is providing supervision ‘at the side of’ the combined laboratory and x-ray technologist (CLXT) student, provisional CLXT employee, CLXT employee, or student of another regulated health profession.
Indirect supervision means a registrant is available for guidance and consultation but is not directly at the side of the CLXT student or provisional CLXT employee. This means that the registrant readily available or in the same location where the care is being provided.
Indirect remote supervision means that a registrant is available for consultation and guidance but is not physically present in the location where the care is being provided but is able to be contacted using technology. This means that the registrant may be available within the four walls of a facility or can be reached by telephone or other electronic means when the CLXT student or CLXT provisional employee needs verbal assistance or guidance in providing client care.
A Temporary permit expires 3-months from the effective date and may be extended for up to one year. Once a Temporary registrant successfully passes the ACCLXT Provincial Examination, the registrant must move to the Active register to obtain an ACCLXT Active Permit.
