CPTA Continuing Education Approvals

 

The California Physical Therapy Association (CPTA) is an agency recognized by the Physical Therapy Board of California to approve courses for continuing education units (CEUs). You can use our database to search for upcoming courses that have been approved. You can search by course sponsor, date, location, or run a key word search to find courses to meet your needs.

The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) is a CPTA-approved continuing education provider. All APTA sponsored courses taken after November 6, 2009 are applicable to California licentiate's mandatory continued competency requirements. APTA Sections and Chapters are not included in this approval and must apply for course approval. 

 


Course Sponsors

If you are hosting or sponsoring a continuing education course for physical therapists or physical therapist assistants, you may be able to offer continuing education units for those participants. Review the CPTA application for CEU Approval to see if you can offer additional value to the course you are sponsoring. It can take up to 60 days to process a standard application unless you opt into the Expedited Service. Be sure to read the list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) below for any questions you might have regarding the application.

CPTA will be closed December 25, 2017 - January 1, 2018
The last day to submit an Expedited Continuing Education Application before the holidays is December 18th to ensure a timely response.


Individual Licentiates

If you took a course and the course sponsor did not apply for CEU approval, you may be able to secure CEUs for the course. Complete the individual application and submit this to CPTA after the conclusion of the course. All applicants must submit the entire application including all required supplemental documents. CPTA will review your application and you may be able to receive credit for the course. Individual applications can only be submitted after the conclusion of the course or conference. Individual applications will not be accepted prior to the start of a course. Check with the course sponsor if you are unclear if CEUs have been awarded. It can take up to 60 days to process a standard application unless you opt into the Expedited Service.

Approved Providers

The California Physical Therapy Association (CPTA) is dedicated to fostering an evidence based continuing education program in California. To assist with this goal, CPTA has established an Approved Provider program for continuing education sponsors. Current approved course sponsors have the opportunity to apply for Approved Provider status through CPTA so that they may offer all of their courses to California PTs and PTAs for continuing education units without having to apply for each course individually.

 

Please note:Organizations must have at least a continuous three (3) year history as an approved continuing education sponsor through CPTA directly prior to applying. In the twelve (12) months directly prior to applying, they must have offered a minimum of ten (10) courses or one hundred (100) contact hours to be eligible. (Eligibility will be verified by CPTA records)
