Information:

Many different States have ongoing continuing education requirements to satisfy - physical therapy or physical therapy assistant - professional requirements and maintain license. Please check with your individual States, as this requirement is not required by some States. The following States listed below have recognized EITTOC as a legitimate educational resource that satisfies their State education requirements.

Some States have no obligation for continuing education - check the rules & regulations of your particular State.

Please note - the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) does not offer course-approval similar to that of ASHA or the AOTA. Because of this, EITTOC has applied for approval course-by-course to individual States, specifically - the State boards of physical therapy, or the physical therapy associations (PTA's) for that State EITTOC urges you to verify with your State board or PT association. Some of our courses are approved by one or more non-governmental professional associations, such as a State's physical therapy association, or a governmental body such as the various State board of physical therapy. Some State boards of PT accept the PTA approval of any US state as satisfactory for their State, and some State boards accept the approval of other State PT boards as acceptable for continuing education credit due to a reciprocal relationship. If either the PTA or the State board of given State approves our course, then a PT or PTA may take course and fulfill their State PT board's obligation for CE units; Some States have no obligation for continuing education - check the rules & regulations of your particular State at:

www.continuingeducation.com/physical-therapy/state-ce-requirements/

If EITTOC's PT logo PT Logo appears on the course description of a course, please check to see if your State (board of PT or PTA, or Canadian province or territory) approves our course. Please choose your State or Provence below to see a list of which of our courses is accepted by your local State board or Canadian Provence of PT. We urge you to verify with each course.
