Virtual NEXT

  • Can't make it to Charlotte for the NEXT Conference & Exposition, June 11-14, 2014? You don't have to miss out!

    Virtual NEXT offers live and on-demand streaming of the conference's 2 signature lectures, plus 8 additional sessions, worth up to 1.6 CEUs! Only interested in a few sessions? New this year, you can purchase them individually.

    Registrants of APTA's previous virtual conference have praised both the content ("fantastic") and ease of access ("I just had a baby and was unable to physically attend, so this was a great alternative").

    Earn 1.6 CEUs (16 contact hours/CCUs) with the Virtual NEXT (complete package), or 0.2 CEUs (2 contact hours/CCUs) by purchasing individual Virtual NEXT sessions. (Note: APTA only awards continuing education 1 time for a professional development activity. Attendees of NEXT who participate in Virtual NEXT may not claim CEUs for both events because the content between these 2 educational offerings overlaps. Claiming CEUs or submitting a transcript for both learning activities will not be verified by APTA in case of an audit by the state licensing board. State licensing boards are responsible for occasionally auditing licensees and their continuing education activities.)
