PT/PTA Continuing Education Rules

All licensed physical therapists and physical therapist assistants are required to biennially complete thirty hours (30) hours of acceptable continuing education. Hours must be reported to the Advisory Commission each even-numbered year at the time of renewal. The Federation of State Board of Physical Therapy (FSBPT) offers a free continuing competence resource called aPTitude. This service includes a free tracking tool to assist physical therapist and physical therapy assistant's track completed continuing competency/continuing education (CC/CE) activities. During the audit of CC/CE, licensees may submit the aPTitude report in lieu of each CC/CE certification of completion. To learn more about this free service visit FSBPT's website. https://pt.fsbpt.net/aPTitude/public/info/home.
