Oregon CE Approval
The Oregon Physical Therapist Licensing Board is the state agency responsible for CE approval, however they do not pre-approve nor certify CE courses. If the course relates to the direct delivery of PT services and a completion certificate is issued, the course will qualify for CE in Oregon. If the course is approved by another state or recognized organization (ie: OPTA, APTA), it will automatically qualify for CE in Oregon. Course providers should provide attendees with an outline and/or syllabus of the course in case the licensee is audited by the Board. For questions or more specific information on CE approval in Oregon, please contact the Oregon Physical Therapist Licensing Board at 971.673.0200 or visit their website at www.ptboard.state.or.us
to view the Oregon Administrative Rules (division 35).
