Hi Deborah. I am the manager of the certification process (SEAS) for internationally educated occupational therapists. We are in the process of drafting an applicant code of conduct/policy, not only addressing cheating, etc, but also addressing behaviour and conduct.
We do have an agreement that the applicant signs off on before completing their competency assessment, which is being delivered remotely since the pandemic. The final paragraph is as follows:
Breach of Agreement:
I understand that any breach of ACOTRO policies or breach of this Agreement, including but not limited to a breach of confidentiality, may result in suspension or termination of my access to the SEAS program and/or to my disqualification from eligibility for registration as an occupational therapist in Canada.

I would be happy to collaborate with you on this activity.
