Offered in a convenient downloadable format, each Home Study Course (HSC) consists of five or more chapters, along with a final examination. Chapters are approximately 15-30 pages in length and require four to six hours to complete.
The final examination consists of five questions from each chapter. To receive continuing education credit, HSC participants must complete the final examination successfully online through the SPTS Learning Management System. Certification of successful completion and award of the CEUs will be downloadable immediately.
Course participants must score 80% on the final examination in order to successfully receive CEUs.
CEU's awarded vary for each course; accrediting agencies may change the number of credit hours (contact hours) awarded for a HSC.
As always, SPTS members receive deep discounts on Home Study Courses.
Courses are not pre-approved by individual staes or the APTA, although most states accept all courses for licensure. Courses are not approved by the NATA for ATC licensure. Courses are non-refundable once purchased.
