It's time again to share the upcoming deadlines for late summer. As in our previous CE Deadline Overview, this is something we will be doing semi-monthly to keep everyone informed of their upcoming deadlines.
Of course, as board rules are apt to change, be sure to always check the board rules in your state of licensure for more information on your deadline and continuing education requirements. Additionally, this review, as with all future posts on this subject, will only cover the requirements for states where Milestone CEUs are approved. Now that the disclaimers are out of the way, let's get started!
Chiropractors - On August 1st chiropractors licensed in Nebraska will need to submit their 36 hours of continuing education (keeping in mind that only 6 hours may come from online sources). September 1st is a popular date for continuing ed. deadlines for D.C.s licensed in Montana and North Dakota. Montana chiropractors need to turn in their certificates of completion for their 13 hour requirement and North Dakota chiropractors must complete 20 hours of CEU courses by that date. Then on September 30th, South Carolina chiropractors are up for renewal and must have completed 36 hours, however only 18 of those may come from an online source.
Occupational Therapists & Assistants - Delaware OT practitioners have to submit their renewal materials, including proof of completion of 20 hours of CE courses - careful, there's a 10 hour limit for online courses! - by July 31st. Wyoming occupational therapist and assistants have to complete their 16 hour requirement by July 31st as well. OT practitioners in Nebraska have a deadline the following day (August 1st) to complete their renewal requirements, including a 20 hour CE requirement for OTs and a 15 hour CE requirement for OTAs.
Don't forget that when you purchase 20 hours from Milestone (that's two 10 hour CEU courses, or one 20 hour bundle pack), you receive a FREE 4 hour ethics course! This isn't a sale, this is a perpetual offer when you choose Milestone. Contact a CE Specialist toll-free at 1-800-709-8220 for details.
Physical Therapists & Assistants - Time is up on September 1st for Arizona physical therapists to submit proof of the completed 20 hour requirement. Arizona PTAs do not have a CE requirement. Illinois physical therapists have until September 30th to submit their renewal documentation, including proof of completion of their 40 hour continuing ed. requirement. PTs in Illinois are only allowed to complete half of that amount (20 hours) via online resources. PTAs in Illinois are up for renewal next year.At Milestone CE, our mission is to provide the best online CE experience for our practitioners. Part of achieving this is maintaining our standing with national professional regulatory organizations like the Better Business Bureau, the PACE program within the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards, the American Occupational Therapy Association (Approved Provider 7487), the Board of Certification, Inc. (Approved Provider #P8382), the National Strength and Conditioning Association (Approved Provider L1272), the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (Approved Provider 491), as well as individual state boards for physical therapy (click here to find out your state’s approval status).
