Frequently Asked Questions and Policies
1. Who can take a course?
Jones Institute courses are designed for all licensed health care professionals. Practitioners must hold an active state issued license to register for a course.
2. Can I get CE credit through The Jones Institute
The Jones Institute is a NCBTMB provider. All Jones Institute courses are 20 hours with the exception of FCS LV (24 hrs) and full participation is required for course credit.
The Jones Institute applies for CE approval with the State Physical Therapy Board in the state where the course is held. We submit our application for boards that require the educational provider to get approval before the course begins. We do not apply with state boards that do not require the provider to have approval. Those required approval numbers will be printed at the bottom of your course completion certificate.
There are one page course outlines with general schedules found in your student portal for your convenience for filing with a state board. Locate the course and click on the pdf file at the bottom of the page.
Please check with your state licensing board for their CEU requirements on courses out of state. This information can be found at The Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy.
Class ratio for CA courses is 16:1.
Certification Tests do not qualify for CEU credit.
