Continuing Education for School-Based Therapists

Learn how to help improve your student’s school experiences with continuing education courses from ERI. Our courses will give you the knowledge and credentials to better serve your students and help you advance in your career. Some additional benefits of our school-based therapy continuing education courses include:

  • Maintaining your license: Many states require school-based therapists such as Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech-Language Pathologists, Special Educators, Social Workers and Psychologists to complete continuing education courses to renew or maintain their license or certification. By completing your continuing education courses through ERI, have the option to complete courses on your own time to continue doing the job you love. 
  • Staying updated on new clinical knowledge or skills: We frequently update our courses to reflect the latest clinical knowledge and skills. With this new knowledge, you will provide better care for your patients and make informed decisions. 
  • Receiving specialization certifications: Many specialized certifications require CEU courses to help to further expand your knowledge and skillsets. We offer courses in various subjects to allow you to maintain your license and specialization certification.

School-Based Continuing Education Courses for OTs, PTs and SLPs

At ERI, we understand that you want to provide the best possible care for your students. This aspiration is why we design our school-based occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech-language pathology continuing education courses to provide as much value as possible.
