 What You Need to Know About Continuing Education 

Rec Therapists need to earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to renew their national certification and/ or state license.

Rec Therapists with the Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist (CTRS) credential are required to earn at least 50 clock hours of Continuing Education (CE), which is (measured as 5.0 CEUs) before the end of their five year re-certifiation period.

Those who don’t earn CEUs would lose their certification and/ or license to practice.

This could result in losing position and livelihood.

Rec Therapists who continue their education will earn CEUs to renew their national certification and/or state license to practice.

They stay relevant in their profession.

They strive to become the best they can be in their field.

Your Simple Three-Step CEU Plan from Rec Therapy Today®.

It’s easy for you because we have a stellar learning management system [LMS].

You can complete your CEU courses on your smart phone or ipad too!

At Rec Therapy Today® we know that you want to be the best Recreational Therapist that you can be.

In order do that, you need to maintain your continuing education for national certification and/or state licensure.

The problem is that conferences can be difficult to attend, which makes you feel stressed-out about getting enough CEUs.

We believe in learning, growing, and succeeding. 

We understand that taking time off work to attend a conference can be difficult, which is why we’ve provided online CEUs for thousands of Rec Therapists with the CTRS credential since 2007.

Sign-up for online CEUs at Rec Therapy Today® so you can stop worrying about losing your national certification and instead continue your education, continue your career, and continue your success.

This is how much time you have to earn CEUs before the end of 2020...
