CEUs are offered by AOTA, PDUs are recognized by NBCOT and Contact Hours by State License Boards. The breakdown is .1 CEU equals 1 PDU/1 Contact Hour. However, if the course has an exam associated with it then its .1 CEU equals 1.25 PDUs/1 Contact Hour. Note: the number 1 (whole number) CEU equals 10 PDUs/10 Contact hours. Unless there is an exam associated with it then the PDUs would be more.
Some courses do not have an assessment component therefore no CEUs are issued. For webcasts without an assessment component, we only provide contact hours…which most states and NBCOT will accept (NBCOT calls them PDUs).
The CE earned from AOTA courses is tracked through your AOTA Learn account and can be accessed here. You cannot upload CE units not earned through AOTA or its CE partners to your AOTA Learn account. Additionally, AOTA does not upload CE units to any State CE Broker.
Each state has their own requirements regarding CEU's/Contact Hours. Click here for our State Policy’s Issue in Licensure webpage where contact information can found for your state licensure board.
