Does looking at the Kansas Occupational Therapy Statute make you feel like you're being carried away in a whirlwind? Don't worry, this post will explain the rules and regulations surrounding your occupational therapy continuing education courses, how they are defined, and how to report them in a way that even a scarecrow could understand!
Proof of completion of no less than forty (40) hours of continuing education is due by March 31st of every odd year. The time frame during which they must obtain these hours is a two year period, but proof of OT continuing education activities is not required during even-numbered years. OTs and OTAs must complete the process for renewal between February 15th and April 30th in order to continue practicing for the next two years.
According to the Statute (K.A.R. 100-54-7. Continuing education; license renewal), continuing education options are organized into six (6) classes, each having its own contact hour restriction. This is to ensure that the practitioner has a well-rounded experience with their OT continuing education. The classes are essentially defined as:
The maximum number of contact hours awarded for this area of OT continuing education depends on the nature of the publication itself. If you publish an "original paper" or a book inside the two year renewal period, the maximum number of contact hours that can be expected is thirty (30). If you publish reviews, abstracts or case reports, the maximum allotted is fifteen (15).
Now this is where OTs and OTAs need to stick to the golden brick road to avoid confusion surrounding the classes. In order to obtain the full forty hour requirement, they must obtain a certain number of hours from a combination of the classes. A minimum of thirty (30) hours of OT continuing education may come from categories 1, 4 and 5 combined. Class 1 alone is limited to a maximum of twenty (20) hours. A maximum of eight (8) hours may come from category 2, and a maximum of two (2) hours may come from category three. A maximum of thirty (30) hours may come from category five, and finally a maximum of ten (10) hours may come from category six. Are you still with me, or did you fall asleep in the poppy field?
Some of the classes have special reporting methods that are important to note in advance. For example, classes one and two require documented proof of attendance. Personal verification is required for participation in class three. The OT practitioner must provide copies of all published materials (class four), and employer verification is necessary to receive credit for participation in class six.

When I sit down to blog about a state I've never been to, I try to imagine what I'd want to see and learn about on a trip there. The first place I start is the state's website, knowing it will showcase the best aspects of my imaginary destination. Applying this method to Arkansas, the first thing I found out is that the state slogan is: "The Natural State."
With the tiniest amount of research, I quickly learned that the Arkansas houses no less than seven national parks (that's 2.6 million acres of forest lands), two mountain ranges, and 13 major lakes. Now that may be great information to include in a post about traveling, but my focus is to find the connection between the place and the profession.
My target today are physical therapists and physical therapy assistants licensed in Arkansas. Since each state's natural features drive the types of physical activities its residents will participate in (if you're the outdoorsy type at least), I imagine this impacts the types of injuries Arkansas PTs and PTAs rehabilitate, since thirteen major lakes means water sports, boating and fishing; two mountain ranges signals hiking, biking and possibly winter sports like skiing and snowboarding. We all know that these sorts of activities come with inherent risks. Thank goodness PTs and PTAs are there to help us get back to functioning normally when things don't go as planned!
According to the state law, physical therapists must complete 20 hours of physical therapy continuing education (keeping in mind that only 10 may be obtained from physical therapy home study programs). Physical therapy assistants are required to complete 10 hours of PTA CEUs, but only 5 can come from online CE sources. Practitioners have between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2014 to acquire these hours in order to apply for license renewal. With over 970 hours of physical therapy and PTA CEUs to choose from (and counting) our goal is to make our Course Catalog as diverse as the Arkansas landscape! Whatever your personal practice focuses on, Milestone offers online physical therapy CEU courses that combine quality, convenience and affordability so they fit perfectly into your schedule.
