CE Approval Process

Get continuing education hours/credits approved for licensure renewal.

Most Louisiana Occupational Therapy Practitioners are required to obtain at least 12 contact hours (or 1.2 units) of continuing education (CE) yearly to meet requirements for annual state licensure renewal by LSBME (refer to their website for further details and exceptions). 

Per our state rules, any course meeting the state standards (prescribed by §1967.A.-D) offered through AOTA, through an AOTA approved provider, or through LOTA shall be presumptively deemed approved by LSBME.

Single Course Approval

LOTA's  single course approval authorizes continuing education providers to issue LOTA continuing education hours (CE hours). These CE hours are approved by the Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners (LSBME) for license renewal.  

Approved Provider Program

The LOTA Approved Provider Program (APP) authorizes continuing education providers to issue LOTA continuing education hours (CE hours). These CE hours are approved by the Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners (LSBME) for license renewal.
