Physical Therapists - There is a 60 day window for credentialing continuing education activities for physical therapists within the state of Ohio.  The Ohio state board state they will honor the CE’s if not credentialed within that 60 day period. The application was submitted on March 24 and is just outside of the required 60 days of our event.  The Ohio state board does not expedite approval of CE’s which would certainly help us at this point in speeding up the credentialing process.
