ALEXANDRIA, VA, January 26, 2018—APTA has partnered with the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy (FSBPT) to use aPTitude, a free continuing competence resource that was developed as part of their continuing competence program.
aPTitude is a user-friendly online system that allows licensees and physical therapy licensing boards to track continuing competence and education requirements for license renewal. Course and activity providers are also able to list and manage their activities online. Sharing APTA's Learning Center courses in aPTitude will assist physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and students of physical therapy in managing, reporting, and tracking their educational courses.
"APTA is excited to build on its established relationship with FSBPT by utilizing aPTitude," said APTA CEO Justin Moore, PT, DPT. "We look forward to mutually helping our members more easily navigate their CC/CE courses and activities."
FSBPT CEO William Hatherill said, "FSBPT is pleased to expand its collaboration with APTA. We believe this partnership to promote and support continuing competence will benefit APTA members, licensing boards, licensees, and ultimately all consumers of physical therapist services."
Preconference and educational sessions are now in the system, ahead of next month's APTA 2018 Combined Sections Meeting.
Created by its Board of Directors, APTA formed its partnership program in 2017 to enhance relationships and develop supportive and collaborative partnerships with other organizations with common interests and objectives.
FSBPT is a membership organization with a mission to protect the public by providing service and leadership that promote safe and competent physical therapist practice.
