The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) has recently partnered with the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy (FSBPT) to use aPTitude, a free continuing competence resource that was developed as part of their continuing competence program.
aPTitude is a user-friendly online system that allows licensees and physical therapy licensing boards to track continuing competence and education requirements for license renewal. Course and activity providers are also able to list and manage their activities online.
Sharing APTA’s Learning Center courses in aPTitude, can help physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and students of physical therapy manage, report, and track their educational courses, according to a media release from APTA.
“APTA is excited to build on its established relationship with FSBPT by utilizing aPTitude,” says APTA CEO Justin Moore, PT, DPT, in the release. “We look forward to mutually helping our members more easily navigate their CC/CE courses and activities.”
FSBPT CEO William Hatherill adds that, “FSBPT is pleased to expand its collaboration with APTA. We believe this partnership to promote and support continuing competence will benefit APTA members, licensing boards, licensees, and ultimately all consumers of physical therapist services.”
Preconference and educational sessions are now in the system, ahead of next month’s APTA 2018 Combined Sections Meeting.
