  • APTA Learning Center Offers Free Online Courses

    The opportunities include both live and recorded telehealth webinars, as well as self-paced courses on a range of topics — all free to APTA members.

    In these challenging times, PTs, PTAs, and students face multiple pressures — including the pressure to keep up with changing practice dynamics in the wake of a global pandemic.

    APTA's Learning Center can help. The association's online continuing education platform now offers a collection of webinars and courses that can provide you with insight into telehealth, where some of the most significant changes are happening to the profession in response to the COVID-19 emergency. APTA has also collected self-paced courses on a variety of other topics that are perfect for when you need to give yourself time away from the current crisis.

    All listed offerings are free to APTA members; some are free to everyone. Unless otherwise noted, all offerings include the opportunity to earn CEUs.

    Courses include:

    Live Online Telehealth Webinar

    Recorded Webinars on Telehealth


    Self-Paced Courses on Other Topics

    • @ Lori: Decisions around extensions and allowable types of CEUs are made by your state's physical therapy licensing board. You may want to check with the board to find out about any changes.

    • Is there any research/education/etc on fall prevention strategies while doing a telehealth/video visit? In person fall prevention strategies can include use of a gait belt, staying within close range of the patient, etc. Any information on how to prevent falls during a treatment session when these in person options are not available using a virtual platform?
