TOTA District Continuing Education Approval Program

The TOTA Approved Provider Program authorizes continuing education providers to issue TOTA continuing education (CE) hours. The TOTA District APP assures that continuing education courses offered by Districts are relevant to OT practitioners in the state of Texas and corresponds with criteria for continuing education established by the Texas Board of Occupational Therapy Examiners (TBOTE). 

In order to have your District CE approved, please submit an application to the TOTA website electronically.  We ask that you submit for each CE presentation at least 3-4 weeks prior to presentation date to allow ample time for processing and approval.  Applications will be reviewed by at least 2 members of the TOTA's CE review committee to assure quality of the course offering and it meets the TBOTE CE criteria. 

District CE Application

 
Create a Calendar Event, but do not publish it.  Once your CE application has been approved the TOTA staff will publish your event on the calendar and create a form for registration.  An approved course number will be provided to the District Education Chair.

District Meeting Procedure


Record your event and save it to the District Dropbox.  Announce the approved course number at the END OF THE EVENT.  Attendees will have 5 days to complete the post-course survey and enter the unique course number in order to receive their CE Credits.  Credits will be added to their profile after 5 days, under “Your continuing education credits”.
