Physical Therapy Continuing Education Information
All ICE Courses are CEU Approved
All live courses are approved in the state they are hosted in (either through reciprocity or manual pre-approval). All online ICE courses are pre-approved for CEU credit through the MPTA as well as 30 other states through reciprocity (see below for list of states). If you are taking an online course and live in a state that does not share reciprocity, you will need to apply for individual approval. This is usually a free or cheap (~$25) process through your state association or state medical board website.
We know that CEU accreditation is very valuable to so many of you because employers will often not reimburse for continuing education unless the course is worth CEUs. We have worked very hard to have ICE courses thoroughly vetted for approval in order to provide that value.
Specific CEUs Per Course:
- All of our live weekend seminars are pre-approved for 16 CEUs
- All of our 8-week online courses are pre-approved for 16 CEUs
- Virtual ICE is pre-approved for 24 CEUs (if you participate for 12 consecutive months)
States Pre-Approved Through Reciprocity:
Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida (Rule 64B17-9), Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
Some states still do not require continuing education for re-licensure (Maine, Massachusetts, South Dakota). In addition, some states do not perform verification of continuing education material which means they do not approve courses for CEU credit and accept any material. Please check with your state physical therapy association or state PT board for more details.
What if my state is not approved?
Remember that all live courses are approved even in states that do not share reciprocity (we manually apply for approval and pay the additional fees).
If you are taking an online course and we are not approved in your state through reciprocity, please visit your state board/association website. Often, you have an option to apply for “individual approval” by submitting proof that you took the course along with other paperwork we can provide you (faculty CVs, course schedule, etc.) We have never had a course denied for approval through this route.
