    APTA Reauthorized as IACET CEU Provider

    The International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) recently reauthorized APTA's status as an Authorized Provider, a designation that allows the association to offer IACET Continuing Education Units (CEUs), ensures licensing agencies and the physical therapy community of the quality of APTA's products, and serves as a benchmark for CE for the profession. 

    APTA has been an IACET Authorized Provider for 15 years. This is the association's third recognition period, which extends until July 2016 and includes all programs offered or created during that time.

    "APTA is proud of the quality and diversity of educational opportunities available to physical therapists and physical therapist assistants through APTA's Learning Center," said Marilyn Phillips, PT, MS, CAE, APTA's director of professional development. "To date, the Learning Center provides more than 400 different CE offerings in a wide variety of live and online formats. APTA's CE offerings feature current, best-practice content provided by nationally recognized experts. The association's partnership with IACET is a demonstration of APTA's commitment to serving as the benchmark for quality continuing education in physical therapy. IACET recognition based on the ANSI/IACET 2007 Standard is an assurance of quality CE products and processes."

    APTA, 1 of 3 physical therapy related organizations designated as an Authorized Provider, joins nearly 650 organizations around the world that have had their programs vetted by third-party experts in continuing education to ensure the highest possible standards are met. In order to achieve Authorized Provider status, APTA completed a rigorous application process, including a review by an IACET site visitor, and successfully demonstrated adherence to the ANSI/IACET 1-2007 Standard addressing the design, development, administration, and evaluation of its programs. APTA has pledged its continued compliance with the Standard, and is authorized to use the IACET name and Authorized Provider logo on promotional course material. In addition, APTA is linked to IACET's Web site and is recognized as offering the highest quality continuing education and training programs.

    Each state has a licensing board that mandates the requirements for licensure, continuing education and CEUs. All requirements are different for each state. To begin, contact the licensing board of the state(s) in which you plan to hold a course(s). This is a helpful website to help you get started: www.fsbpt.org. Once there, click on "Licensing Authorities." This will give the contact information for every licensure board as well as access to many of their practice acts, which contain details on continuing education and what providers are required to obtain. If you are looking to become an authorized provider with IACET, attend one of their workshops, followed by the application process. All of this information is found on their website: http://www.iacet.org/
