2. The committee is an advisory committee whose mandate is to examine matters relating to the quality of the training of podiatrists, in keeping with the respective and complementary jurisdictions of the Order, the educational institutions at the university level and the Minister of Higher Education, Research and Science.
Quality of training means the adequacy of training in relation to the professional skills to be acquired to practise as a podiatrist.
In that respect, the committee is to consider
(1) the objectives of the training programs offered by educational institutions at the university level that lead to a diploma giving access to a permit or a specialist’s certificate;
(2) the objectives of the other terms and conditions for the issue of permits or specialist’s certificates that may be imposed by a regulation of the board of directors, such as a professional training period, course or examination; and
(3) the diploma or training equivalence standards prescribed by regulation of the board of directors, giving access to a permit or a specialist’s certificate.
