Home study points may be earned via purchased home study courses various providers have available, creating your own home study or by completing approved online courses at home. There are many continuing education resources for home study. Using websites such as APTA and “Googling” Physical Therapy Continuing Education can net many options with varying point totals. You may earn 1 point for every 3 hours of home study (Rule .0109(a)(6)) up to a maximum of 5 if you are a PT or PTA. In addition, if you earn points in the online Rule .0109(a)(4) category by an approved provider you may earn 1 point for every 2 hours of study up to a maximum of 10 points if you are a PT or PTA. You could earn a maximum of 15 points in these two categories while at home. Don’t forget you may “carry over” up to 10 points into the next reporting period if you go over in either of these categories.
