Regulations set the requirement of 24 contact hours (CH) or 2.4 Continuing Education Units (CEU) to be accrued during the licensing period (July 1- June 30). No carryover of continuing education hours from one licensure period to another shall be allowed. At least 25 percent (6 Contact Hours or .6 CEUs) of the required continuing education must be directly related to the clinical practice of physical therapy. Effective July 1, 2012, physical therapist and physical therapist assistants can take no more than 12 contact hours or 1.2 CEUs of required continuing education online. All licensees must take two hours of board-approved programs in ethics/professional responsibility as part of their total CE requirements. CE hours claimed as clinical may need to be reviewed if considered questionable.
