Approval and CEU/Contact Hour Information

APTA courses are accepted in most states plus the District of Columbia, as allowed by the type of course requirements in state regulations. A small number of states require APTA to seek preapproval of courses. APTA seeks these approvals and lists any relevant approval codes on the certificate of completion.

Note: CEU/contact hour numerical information is provided for informational purposes only. Each state has its own rules and regulations regarding how to calculate your licensure requirements for continuing education or continuing competence. Certain APTA courses may not receive the same credit for the CEU/contact hours listed, and you must check your state’s specific rules. Please contact your state regulatory entity for specific questions.

If you need contact information for your regulatory entity, please visit Licensure or the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy.
