Physical Therapy & Physical Therapy Assistants Continuing Education Frequently Asked Questions

Are these courses accepted by my state Physical Therapy Board?
We are approved and accepted in many states, but we are not approved in all states. Click here to view the states that approve and accept our courses.

How do my continuing education hours get reported to my state Board?
It is your responsibility to report your continuing education credits to your state Board. If your state Board requires documentation of your completed continuing education, you can send them a copy of your completion certificate.

Do you offer any Physical Therapy continuing education training that is not online or correspondence?
We offer online and correspondence continuing education to renew your Physical Therapy or Physical Therapy Assistant license. We do not offer any classroom continuing education courses for Physical Therapists. We find that most students prefer to complete their continuing education online on their computer, smartphone, or tablet – or out of our course booklet.

Do you provide me with a certificate of completion when I finish your continuing education course?
Yes, all students that complete our physical therapy continuing education courses will receive a certificate of completion. We can either email, mail, or fax the certificate to you.

Are your online PT/PTA continuing education courses video?
Our courses are completed either online or correspondence style.

Are your online Physical Therapy/Physical Therapy Assistant continuing education courses audio?
We do not have audio continuing education courses for Physical Therapists.

If I purchase one of our online PT/PTA continuing education course bundles, can I complete one of the courses now, and the rest next renewal period?
Yes. Our physical therapy courses can be completed over multiple license renewal periods.

I have my Physical Therapist / Physical Therapist Assistant license in multiple states. If I purchase one of your PT/PTA continuing education courses online will the continuing education hours only count for one state or multiple states?
We are approved and accepted in many states, but we are not approved in all states. Click here to view the states that approve and accept our courses.

Do I need to be a licensed Physical Therapist to take one of your continuing education courses?
No. We have students from different backgrounds take our courses fairly regularly, so if you want to learn more about any of our course topics feel free to enroll right online.

I received one of your Physical Therapy continuing education books in the mail and would like to be removed from your mailing list. How can I accomplish that?
If you received one of our continuing education booklets in the mail and would like to be removed from our mailing list feel free to send an email to support@pdhtherapy.com and provide us with your name, address, and what state(s) you are currently a licensed Physical Therapist.

You sent me one of your PT continuing education books in the mail and I already have my continuing education hours. Can I give the book to someone else?
Yes. You can feel free to give our physical therapy continuing education book to a friend or colleague.

After I complete my physical therapist continuing education courses, do I send my PT license renewal application to you?
No. You will send in your license renewal application to your state licensing board. The license renewal application should have an address on it telling you where to send it or where to renew online. Many state licensing boards will allow you to renew online.

What if I still have questions about completing my physical therapy continuing education courses?
No problem. Just call our continuing education specialists at (888)564-9098 or email us at support@pdhtherapy.com.
