The Board has not addressed any changes regarding CE requirements at this time, licensees may currently take all 26 continuing education hours as “live” interactive (in real time) courses online, as opposed to physically attending live courses. To find providers offering interactive courses you may go to CE Broker www.CEBroker.com and search for “live” courses. Such courses may be listed on providers’ sites as live, interactive, broadcasted interactive event, web-based in real-time program, etc.
Of the 26 required hours, licensees are limited to taking only 12 hours of home study hours which leaves 14 required “live” hours, however, this does not mean home study hours must be taken. The mandatory hours are for OT Board approved 2 hours of Prevention of Medical Errors, 2 hours as Laws and Rules, 1 hour of Human Trafficking (before January 31, 2021) courses, and 1 hour of HIV/Aids course for first renewal. The mandatory courses are most often found as home study courses. However, again, all 26 continuing education hours may be acquired as “live” interactive (in real time) courses online,
