COVID-19 Information

While overall risk of catching the disease is low, health care professionals are at higher risk. Check the current COVID dial below. APTA reminds PTs and PTAs to follow precautions for reducing the spread of infectious diseases — an important aspect of health care to be mindful of at all times, not just during periods of high risk 



How to Get Your Course Verified by APTA Colorado

APTA Colorado provides professionals in our state with a rigorous course review system. Our system provides therapists and the CEU Providers serving our state with reassurance that courses being verified meet a high standard and will be acceptable as proper course content for the purposes of licensure renewal.  

CEU Providers (of courses) in Colorado can utilize our new CEU Locker system for making course approval applications, maintaining list of credits and submitting payments for all aspects of this process. This CEU Locker system is a shared system for many Physical Therapy Components that provides a fast, convenient centralized location to get approvals in several states by completing and storing your paperwork requirements only one time.
