Oklahoma PT and PTAs Continuing Education Requirements: Category A vs. B

As an Oklahoma Physical Therapist or Physical Therapist Assistant, you know that you must complete either 40 hours for PTs or 30 hours for PTAs of continuing education, including 3 hours of ethics, by December 31st of every odd year. But, what in the world is the difference between continuing education that is classified as either Category A or Category B? Keep reading to find out!

Oklahoma PT

In a nutshell as an Oklahoma PT or PTA, you can complete up to half of your continuing education requirement through online/home study continuing education courses. Online/ home study courses are considered Category B, whereas live courses are considered Category A, and you can take as many of your continuing education hours through Category A courses as you wish. We also recently learned that webinars will be considered Category A! Keep your eyes peeled for more information on that later!

But for now, the good news is you can get en-route to completing up to half of your CEUs before your December 31st deadline with an online or home study course from HomeCEU. Check out our state specific course catalog to find a course which will satisfy the Oklahoma State Board's requirements for continuing education, and be on the lookout for information soon to come about continuing education webinars, which will satisfy your Category A (live) requirements.
