3 FREE ONLINE PT CEUS SITES: APPROVED AND ACCREDITED
Below are 3 different places you can get free continuing education for physical therapists. I am a proponent of continuing to build my education and I feel like there is an endless array of things to improve as a physical therapist. But sometimes, you just cant afford all of these programs.
When I was a new graduate, I relied on these programs to help me save money and continuing my learning.

Today in PT provides 1 free CE course, unfortunately the list is often limited to just 1 course offered. Currently “Parkinson’s Disease and Physical Therapy”, a free 1 hour online course, is being offered.
I love learning but sometimes you cant afford the high end courses. The above courses are highly educationally, as well as free and quick to satisfy your continuing education units as physical therapists. I hope this helps you save money but also grow as a physical therapist! Thank you and please keep reading!
