Click on image to view SALE CE courses approved for North Carolina OTs

North Carolina-licensed Occupational Therapists (OTs), are required to earn 15 points (hours) of continuing education each year for license renewal on June 30th. 1 hour on OT Ethics is required every other year (due odd years). All 15 hours are allowed from online/home study courses that are offered by an AOTA-approved provider and require a posttest.

Continuing competence activities must be complete by May 31 of the renewal year. Continuing competence activities must be related to roles and responsibilities in occupational therapy and must serve to protect the public by enhancing the licensee’s continuing competence.

Occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants applying for license renewal shall document having earned a minimum of 15 points for approved continuing competence activities.

For more information, please see Section .0800 of the Rules of the North Carolina Board of Occupational Therapy. Information on Continuing Competence is also contained in the PowerPoint Presentation, presented at the 2010 North Carolina Occupational Therapy Association‘s Fall Conference.

Professional Development Resources is an AOTA-Approved Provider (#3159) of continuing education for OTs. Over 100 course topics are available, including Ethics for Occupational Therapists. Successful completion of a posttest is required to earn a certificate of completion.
