ConEd Approvals & Requirements

Great Lakes Seminars understands the importance of maintaining your license and level of skill as a therapist. We submit all of our physical therapy courses for continuing education approval in the state in which it is held (if required) along with any appropriate neighboring states*.


*Please note that due to the changing nature of state continuing education requirements, Great Lakes Seminars suggests that you contact your state physical therapy association or licensing board for the most current information on continuing education and other rules and regulations.

Proof of attendance (certificates, letters or transcripts) with course title, date(s) and contact hours/CEUs/PDUs must be submitted. Proof of attendance without noted hours will only be allowed .5 contact hour (1/2 hour) of credit.

One CPR course is acceptable for each renewal period. A copy of your card is proof for one contact hour.

Level II student fieldwork supervision is acceptable to meet continuing education requirements (limited hours– see below). A letter from the student’s school or a copy of the AOTA student form with your name and signature indicating you as one of the primary supervisors will be required for proof.

No more than a 1/3 of your total required hours may be academic, administrative, management, supervision of level II student fieldwork or presentation hours with the remainder being direct patient care objectives. A copy of transcripts will be required for academic courses. Conference materials or letter from conference provider noting presentation is required for presentation hours (presentation time only, no preparation time, and the course may be used only one time for CE credit). 10 Contact Hours = 1 Continuing Education Unit = 1 Academic Hour = 1 Professional Development Unit.

All hours certified by FSBPT

Required CEU every 2 years: September 1, even years
PT: 20
PTA: not required 

At least 10 contact hours must be from Category A, up to the entire 20 contact hour requirement. No more than 10 hours may be utilized from a combination of Category B and/or Category C activities. Because of the variety of conversions used to determine CEU’s by different organizations, the rules require “contact hours” rather than “CEUs” as the measurement of continuing competence activities.

What distinguishes Category A activities is that they are approved for contact hours by one of the following: 1) an accredited medical, PT or health care education program; 2) a national or state medical, PT or health care association, or a component of the association; or 3) a national medical, PT or health care specialty society. This category includes continuing education courses, PT clinical specialty certification coursework, PT clinical residency coursework and post-graduate PT education from an accredited college or university. Each 60 minutes of instruction equals 1 contact hour. The rules state that no more than half of the hours from Category A can be obtained from non-clinical coursework or activities.

Categories B and C include a variety of activities that have not been approved for contact hours by any of the Category A approval organizations. Category B includes study groups (with a minimum of 3 people), self-instruction (which may be directed by a correspondence course, video, internet or satellite program), and attendance at in-service education programs. These activities must relate to the practice of physical therapy, and there is a 5 contact hour maximum for any of the sub-categories within Category B. Category C activities include teaching or lecturing, practice management (e.g. ethics, administration, law, reimbursement, etc), and publications. There is a 5 contact hour maximum for any of the sub-categories within Category C. No more that 5 hours may be obtained from non-clinical coursework. The description of each of these sub-categories in the rules contains the conversion for determining contact hour value (see R4-24-402 for specifics).

The board does not pre-approve any activities for continuing competence credit.
