Course Accreditation


The Utah Physical Therapy Association (UPTA) is recognized by the Department of Occupations & Licensing as an official accrediting body. If your organization is sponsoring a continuing education course, the UPTA can approve your course for Continuing Education Units (CEU) that any attending PT's and PTA's can receive to apply towards their licensing requirements. Also, if you have taken a course and want to make sure it is approved for CEUs, we can help with that.

Our review process is now done through CEU Locker. You will need to create an account to apply for approval. 

Course Sponsors

Organizations and/or individuals sponsoring or hosting a course for continuing education of Physical Therapists and/or Physical Therapist Assistants can apply for UPTA accreditation of their course through CEU Locker. Please plan ahead--this process takes up to four weeks once your information/payment is received. If your course is approved for accreditation, you will receive a certificate for approved CEUs of your course. Course sponsors are responsible for providing certificates to their attendees of the course.

Individual PTs/PTAs

If you have attended a course in the past or are interested in one that does not have CEU approval by an accrediting body (ask the course sponsor), then the UPTA Accrediting Committee can verify if the CEUs are approved. Once your information and payment is received, the process takes up to 4 weeks for committee review.
