Get a Course You Took Approved
If you took a course or plan to take a course that is not approved for CE Credit, or in other words a course provider did not apply to the FPTA for course approval, you can request individual approval by completing and returning the Individual Application Form. If you submit this form prior to the course or within sixty days after course completion, the pricing fees are $30 dollars or $50 dollars depending on the length of the course. If the course is submitted to the FPTA for approval sixty days or later from attendance of the course, the fee is $100.

The FPTA's Relationship to the Florida Board of Physical Therapy
The Florida Physical Therapy Association (FPTA), has no access to license records. Our only role in the license renewal process is approving courses for individuals and/or providers in accordance with Florida Statute 486.109, so that they may receive or give Continuing Education credit towards their Florida License requirements. The Florida Board of Physical Therapy on the other hand, is responsible for all PT and PTA license renewals in Florida. Therefore, if you need more information about your license, require assistance or have questions directly pertaining to licensing such as extensions, expiration or otherwise, you must contact the Board of PT. You can visit their website to learn about obtaining and renewing a license, as well as other practice-related questions. For more information on Continuing Education requirements refer to rule 64B17-9. Below is a brief list of PT and PTA license requirements set forth by the Florida Board of Physical Therapy.
PT for Pain
