California-licensed occupational therapists have a biennial license renewal with a birth date deadline, even years. Twenty-hour (24 PDUs) continuing education hours are required to renew a license.
There are no limits on home study if AOTA approved, and a certificate of completion is required. Twelve (12 PDUs) hours of continuing education must relate directly to occupational therapy service delivery.
