The Credentialed Clinical Instructor Program is intended for health care providers who work primarily in a clinical setting and are interested in developing their teaching abilities.

By participating in Credential Clinical Instructor Program Level 1 and advancing through Clinical Instructor Program Level 2, participants will explore different aspects of the clinical learning environment and will learn skills and techniques necessary to provide a structured and effective learning environment for students.

You can also sponsor a course in your facility.

CCIP courses are taught throughout the year in both Canada and the United States, and enrollment is open to physical therapists and physical therapist assistants. Clinicians from other health care professions are also encouraged to participate — courses regularly include speech therapists, occupational therapists, nurses, and more.

Successful completion of the Level 1 course provides physical therapists and physical therapist assistants with 1.6 CEU's* and the Clinical Instructor Credential. Health care providers from other professions are eligible to receive 1.2 CEU's,* but may not be awarded the Clinical Instructor Credential. Successful completion of the Level 2 course provides physical therapists and physical therapist assistants with 1.7 CEU’s* and the Level 2 Clinical Instructor Credential. Health care providers from other professions are eligible to receive 1.3 CEU’s,* but may not be awarded the Level 2 Clinical Instructor Credential.

*Note: Licensees should verify with their state licensing board for acceptance of CEUs by reviewing the relevant state practice act and/or administrative code.
