How many hours of CE do I need?

Please Tell Me I Can Finish my CEs At Home!

Absolutely! Don't choke down bad coffee in a stuffy classroom or pay out the nose for travel and exorbitant conference fees. Heck, you don't even need to get out of your pajamas if you don't want to. The NCBOT doesn't have any limits on home study courses. That means you can pick and choose courses from our extensive catalog and complete them at home and around your schedule. It really doesn't get much easier than that.

Ethics...Do I Really Need to Take That?

Yep. North Carolina State Board requires all OT/OTA's need to complete at least 1 hour of an ethics course. Why do ethics matter? Ethics within the healthcare setting are guided by principals that allow everyone to follow the same guidelines. Its important for all healthcare workers to know and understand each of these guidelines and how they apply to their daily interactions with patients and family members, coworkers, superiors, administrators, and more.
