2 hours Preventing Medical Errors (required each renewal)
2 hours Florida Occupational Therapy Laws & Rules (required each renewal)
1 hour HIV/AIDS (required for the first renewal only)

Automatically Reports to CE BrokerProfessional Development Resources is an American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) approved provider of continuing education (#3159).

Professional Development Resources is also approved by the Florida Board of OT Practice (#34) and is CE Broker compliant (all courses are reported within 1 week of completion).
