Online continuing education units (CEUs) are becoming more popular among physical therapists (PTs). While there are many options physical therapists have to meet their continuing education requirements, online activities are very popular for several reasons such as their convenience and affordability.

But how can you earn your CEUs online? This blog will guide you through the process!

Firstly though, let’s briefly go through some important background information…

In the United States, CEU requirements for physical therapists (PTs) and physical therapist assistants (PTAs) vary by state. Each state’s physical therapy board or licensing agency sets its own standards for license renewal, which typically includes a certain number of CEUs or contact hours over a specific time frame.

Here are some general considerations regarding CEU requirements for physical therapists:

  • Number of CEUs: The number of required CEUs can range widely, from 10 to 40+ hours every renewal period, depending on the state.
  • Frequency: Most states require PTs and PTAs to renew their licenses every 1-2 years.
  • Content: Some states may have specific topic requirements for the CEUs, such as ethics, jurisprudence, or pain management.
  • Modes of Learning: Some states may accept various types of continuing education such as live courses, online courses, webinars, and more.

Since requirements can vary significantly from one state to another, it’s essential for PTs and PTAs to check with their specific state licensing board to understand their current CEU requirements. Most state boards have websites where they outline the CEU requirements and any other information related to license renewal.



Ok, but what about online CEUs specifically?

Nearly every state will accept online CEUs for physical therapy license renewal. However, it’s important to note that many states have specific requirements regarding the number of CEU hours that can come from certain learning activities (e.g. online), so be sure to check out your state board for further details about this.

While there are many different online CEU providers, the quality of providers can vary significantly. It’s really important to select a provider that is high quality, affordable, and approved in your state. However, this is much easier said than done. Finding high quality, affordable PT CEUs approved in your state can sometimes feel like searching for a needle in a haystack! Enter Physio Network – the perfect solution for physical therapists wanting to complete their CEUs online.
