NEW RULES AND REGULATIONS: The Examining Board of Physical Therapists and Athletic Trainers has revised its Rules and Regulations to include the following:

  • You must complete 0.2 units (2 hours) of Ethics as part of your required continuing education units (CEUs) for each renewal.  You must also complete a CPR course that will count for a maximum of 0.1 unit (one hour) toward your CEUs.  You must meet this new requirement for your next license renewal in 2015.  See Section 13.1.
  • You now have a mandatory duty to report to the Division of Professional Regulation if you have knowledge that another PT, PTA or AT licensee has violated the Board’s Code of Professional Conduct in Section 12.0 or has violated any other Delaware law or rule pertaining to physical therapy or athletic training.  See Section 12.23. 
  • Supervision of Physical Therapist Assistants has been redefined. See Section 1.2.3.
