Notes: Type 1 – General Info (ex: supervision); Type 2 – Specific to OT practice (15 hrs must be from type 2):
Effective 7/1/2016, the requirements for Type 2 CE and the designations of Type 1 and Type 2 CE have been removed from the OT Rules. The OT Rules now state that all CE must comply with the new definition of CE. Each renewal cycle, licensees still must earn 30 hours of CE that meet the requirements in the OT Rules, Chapter 367.
Definition of Continuing Education: Professional development activities that are directly relevant to the profession of occupational therapy.
Please note that if you renew online, the new online CE submission form has been updated to reflect changes to CE rules effective 7/1/2016. Similar changes have been made to the paper renewal application, as well.
Now that the amendments are in effect, when you renew, you will not indicate Type 1 or Type 2 for your CE hours. Instead, you will just list your hours under the category “CE Hours.”
If CE you have already completed for your current renewal period met the requirements of the OT Rules prior to these changes, you will be able to use it when you renew. Refer to the Act and Rules page for further information regarding the adoptions. From that page, you can also access a link to search for previous versions of the OT Rules.
