Help Center / Must I complete additional Continuing Education if I have been out of practice over 5 years when applying for a license?

For Applicants Seeking Reentry Into the Profession: Rule 64B11-3.010, F.A.C., requires any applicant seeking licensure, who has not been in active practice within the last five years, to submit documentation of 50 continuing education hours, relevant to the practice of occupational therapy. Twelve (12) of these 50 hours may be completed as home study. These hours must be completed within the year prior to licensure and verification must be submitted before a license can be issued.

It is not required but strongly advised to take a Florida Board approved Laws and Rules course as a part of the 50 re-entry continuing education hours.
