The Ohio Physical Therapy Association is an entity authorized by the Ohio OTPTAT Board to review and approve continuing education (CE) courses, programs and activities that contribute to the growth of a participant's professional competence in the practice of PT. All courses must be approved by the Ohio Physical Therapy Association and have OHIO APPROVAL to be considered towards licensure renewal requirements.

For CEU information on courses approved prior to 2016, please contact the OPTA office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (614) 855-4109.
CONTINUING EDUCATION - LISTING OF COURSES WITHOUT OHIO APPROVAL
OPTA provides a list of courses submitted that have gone through the review process and the content deemed not applicable to the practice of physical therapy according to the standards set forth in the Ohio Practice Act.
PTs and PTAs may still take these courses; however, CEUs earned by completing these courses cannot be used towards license renewal.
If you've taken a course that does not have an Ohio-approval number, and the course is not listed on either the approved or denied course list, please contact the OPTA office at (614) 855-4109 to inquire if the course is currently under review. If the course is not found on any of these lists, you will need to submit an Individual Application for CEUs, found on the CE Application Portal or Continuing Education page of this website.
For questions pertaining to the renewal process, renewal requirements, audit process or address changes, contact the OTPTAT Licensure Board at email@example.com or (614) 466-3774.
For CE-related questions, i.e. to see if a course has been submitted for review, denied approval, or to check the status of your application, please contact the Ohio Physical Therapy Association at firstname.lastname@example.org or (614) 855-4109.
