Registration for the virtual course is open through November 30, 2020! Rates for the virtual course are discounted from the typical in-person meeting rates by 50%. You will have until December 2, 2020 to complete the course (must watch all course videos as well as complete the mandatory survey that will be sent with the videos). After this date, the links to the course videos will expire and will no longer be accessible.
After you register, the APTA Louisiana office will email you the links to access the course video presentations along with a link to a mandatory post-course survey. The survey will consist of two parts: 1) a short "test" of the courses you registered for to confirm that you watched the presentations, and 2) a short meeting feedback survey. You must complete and submit the survey in order to receive credit for watching the course videos. The APTA Louisiana office will email you a certificate of completion upon your survey submission. If you are enrolled in the Ethics Seminar, you will be required to email the APTA Louisiana Office a short-answer written response to a question prompt sent in the email with the video link in lieu of answering test questions on the survey for the Ethics course.
RECEIVING CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT
The Louisiana Physical Therapy Board has waived the live coursework requirement for 2021 renewals ONLY. Online courses are now allowed to be substituted for live courses during the 2021 renewal period. As of now, those renewing in 2022 will still have to meet the "live course" requirement of a minimum of 15 hours, but can still take part in our fall course to earn online hours (maximum 15 hours) toward their required total hours for 2022.
