Maine Physical Therapy Continuing Education Requirements
From the Maine Physical Therapy Practice Act Website: https://www.maine.gov/pfr/professionallicensing/professions/physical_therapists/faq_general.html
“Do I have to complete continuing education for license renewal requirements?
Maine Law does not require continuing education for this profession.”
Maine is one of three states that do not mandate any continuing education requirements for Physical Therapists to renew their license.
Of course, Physical Therapists should always look for opportunities to grow in the latest research, techniques, and resources to improve their skill set.
Continuing Education for Physical Therapists
There are plenty of continuing ed courses for PTs, OTs, and SLPs. One of the best resources I’ve found is through MedBridge.
You have access to over 1500 courses with MedBridge for a fraction of the cost of a live weekend course.
