Physical therapists and physical therapist assistants in Ohio have a new requirement for licensure renewal. Licensees are required to complete a standardized jurisprudence assessment module (JAM) worth 2 CEUs in each renewal cycle starting in 2022 for PTs and 2023 for PTAs; JAM is not required for first time renewals. The module will provide continuing education regarding Ohio’s laws and rules governing physical therapy. The module is available at https://www.fsbpt.org/Our-Services/Jurisprudence-Assessment-Module-JAM-Services/Ohio.
