CEU Audit Frequently Asked Questions

CEU Audit How To Video 


Why was I chosen for the CEU Audit?

All PTs and PTAs licensed in Louisiana are mandated to complete biennial continuing education (CE), unless exempt pursuant to Rule §198. Prior to renewing a PT/PTA license, the licensee should review their CE certificates to ensure they meet the CE requirements of Rule §194. The annual CE Audit is a way for the board to spot check that LPTB CE requirements have been met.


How many times can a PT or PTA be selected for the CE audit?
There is no limit to the number of times a licensee can be selected for the CE audit. If a licensee has renewed his/her Louisiana license, he/she is eligible for audit selection. 


May I fax or email my audit response documents to the board office?

No. Audit response documents may NOT be submitted by fax or email. Licensees should upload their course completion certificates to the course entry from their renewal. Course certificates should ideally have been uploaded prior to renewal but licensees can still upload their certificates by accessing reported courses in their dashboard's archive. We provide a short 45 second clip on how to access the archive and upload certificates here.

Certificates should not be sent as pictures taken with phones or other cameras. Please scan your documents.


What is the penalty for not submitting a complete audit response packet by the May 15 deadline?
An audited licensee who is unable to provide valid documentation demonstrating compliance with the CE audit and/or failure to submit a full audit response before the May 15 deadline, will be considered non-compliant with the CE audit and may face disciplinary action.  


How will I be notified of the outcome of my CEU Audit?
After a staff member has completed the review process and it is determined that the licensee is compliant, notification will be sent to the licensee regarding their audit outcome to the email address on file with LPTB. 

If the licensee is found to be non-compliant with audit, the licensee will receive a letter by regular mail and certified mail requesting additional documentation by a specified deadline.
