Continuing Education

  • All continuing education must be relevant to occupational therapy or coursework approved by another health profession board or organization. For courses approved by other boards, we will honor the approved hours for the other professionals.
  • All coursework and in-services required by your employer are acceptable except corporate compliance or any in-service or course specific to your employment i.e.: employee handbook, leave, etc.
  • Proof of attendance (certificates, letters or transcripts) with course title, date(s) and contact hours/CEUs/PDUs must be submitted. Proof of attendance without noted hours will only be allowed .5 contact hour (1/2 hour) of credit.
  • One CPR course is acceptable each renewal period. A copy of your card is proof for one contact hour.
  • Level II student fieldwork supervision is acceptable to meet continuing education requirements (limited hours– see below). A letter from the student’s school or a copy of the AOTA student form with your name and signature indicating you as one of the primary supervisors will be required for proof.
  • There is no limit to the amount of hours you may obtain with self-study (home study, online or webinars).
  • No more than a 1/3 of your total required hours may be academic, administrative, management, supervision of level II student fieldwork or presentation hours with the remainder being direct patient care objectives. A copy of transcripts will be required for academic courses. Conference materials or letter from conference provider noting presentation is required for presentation hours (presentation time only, no preparation time, and the course may be used only one time for CE credit). 10 Contact Hours = 1 Continuing Education Unit = 1 Academic Hour = 1 Professional Development Unit

Proof of required continuing education must be electronically submitted directly to CE Broker. Using CE Broker, you will transmit your CE, and track your progress.
