Snow is already falling on the great state of Indiana, but don't let it bury your December 31st deadline! Here's a quick review of the requirements you will need to check off your list before the deadlin, and how Milestone CE courses can help you get there.
During each biennial renewal period occupational therapists and OTAs must obtain 18 hours of CEUs. Of those 18 hours, at least 9 must come from activities that meet the specifications of Category 1, which are: formally organized courses, undergraduate or graduate level classes, workshops, symposia and home study courses, like those offered at Milestone. Category 2 activities include: publishing books or academic articles, supervised fieldwork, and research activities among several others. The Indiana board defines an hour of continuing education as 50 minutes.
When choosing a continuing ed. provider to satisfy Category 1 requirements, look for NBCOT, IOTA, or AOTA approved agencies or courses. Milestone, AOTA Approve Provider #7487, currently offers over 900 hours of online (or mail order) continuing education courses that focus on the practice of occupational therapy, and are designed to fit your busy schedule. Test them out for yourself! Go to the Course Catalog, select your titles, and get started immediately with the online option. All you have to do is download your course content and you're ready to go. What are you waiting for? December 31st is only 40 days away!
