State CEU Approvals
for Independent Study Courses

CEU Information

AOPT CEUs are accepted by the majority of state physical therapy licensure boards, as allowed by the type of course requirements in state regulations. For individual state requirements, please visit your state licensure board website.

Continuing education requirements are regulated by the state boards of physical therapy. Each state licensing board has its own policies and procedures related to continuing education of its licensees. State boards of physical therapy place the responsibility on licensees to follow rules and regulations related to the practice of physical therapy and maintenance of licensure in their states. Licensees should verify acceptance of continuing education courses with their state licensing board by reviewing the relevant state practice act and/or administrative code.

A small number of states require that AOPT apply for pre-approval of courses including California, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma and Texas. APTA obtains approval from these states. The approval codes for these states are listed below.
