Continuing Education Requirements

All licensees are required to complete continuing education and competency activities as part of license renewal requirements.
A licensee who obtains a license during the first twelve months of any 24 month reporting period shall complete 12 contact hours before the end of the
current reporting period.  Subsequent renewals require a minimum of 24 contact hours during the 2 year period preceding the license renewal date.
It is the responsibility of the licensee to assure that the selected courses meet his or her individual needs to maintain knowledge of occupational therapy 
theory and practice.  The Board does not require pre-approval of specific courses or providers.  Core job specific requirements of your chosen industry of 
occupational therapy DO NOT count toward continuing competency  requirements for licensure renewal. Examples include:  CPR, first aid training, 
documentation courses, ethics courses, and training in coding, billing or payment systems.

Licensees should refer to Legislative Rule §13-4 Continuing Education and Competency Requirements for further information.

The following Continuing Education opportunities are being provided as a resource.  Courses and providers ​listed are not necessarily
endorsed by the WV Board of Occupational Therapy.
