Policies and Procedures for the Continuing Competency Board

Continuing education unit (CEU) application forms are sent out annually in May via e-mail. CEU proof of attendance and CEU applications are due June 30th of that same year. Twelve contact hours or 1.2 CEU’s are required annually. One contact hour is equivalent to .1 CEU’s.  A certificate of good standing will be sent upon confirmation of payment and appropriate CEU’s. Probationary status will be assigned to individuals who do not meet the June 30th CEU deadline and a late fee will be assessed.

Registration Status Categories are as follows:

  1. Good Standing
  2. Probation I
  3. Probation II

Once Registration has been revoked, an individual must pass the Kinesiotherapy Registration exam to be placed back in good standing.

 **Note: The Continuing Competency Board for Kinesiotherapy (CCBKT) does not allow for back paying of CEU’s beyond the Probation II status.

 All continuing education activities must relate to the Scope of Practice for Kinesiotherapy. Examples of acceptable continuing education credit are:
