OT Potential Podcast Occupational Therapy CEUs

Hi, I’m Sarah!

I felt like I was spending my entire work day reinventing the wheel. And worse, I felt like I couldn’t deliver the OT care I aspired to.

I wanted to know: What new evidence is coming out? And, what are the leading OTs doing in their practices?

OT Potential has evolved over the years to answer those questions for you. We are so proud of what we’ve built and the community that has formed. I hope you join us!

Complements In-Person and Live Courses

Our on-demand courses are all online and one hour.

But, we know some of you have in-person requirements. And, there is something special about live OT trainings. We priced the Club affordably, so you can also seek out professional development near you.

Your state OT association is a great place to start—many offer live courses and webinars!

Frequently Asked Questions

All OT Potential courses are designed to meet the requirements for “online” and “independent/self-study” courses. We are AOTA-approved, and our courses also meet the requirements for NBCOT PDUs. For more details, read our blog post: Can I Earn OT CEUS from a Podcast?

To verify the CEU requirements for your specific state (within the US), check out our blog post: OT Continuing Education Explained.

We designed our courses to live on the platforms you already use. All courses are available on Spotify, Apple, and everywhere you listen to podcasts. Courses released after June 2023 also appear on YouTube. 

After watching or listening, log into the OT Potential Club to take your test, earn your certificate, and access supplemental tools and resources.

Each 1-hour course includes:

  • A written review of the research
  • A podcast episode
  • A YouTube video of the episode (for courses released after June 2023)
  • Supplemental materials
  • A quiz to earn a certificate 

Many courses also feature specific assessment tools, which are added to our growing assessment search. Any accompanying documentation examples supplied by course experts are also added to our member resource library.

We center each course on highly-cited new research. The research often has implications spanning multiple practice areas.

To help you find the courses most relevant to you, we’ve tagged them based on applicable practice area(s): Pediatrics, Adult Rehab, Outpatient, School-based, SNF, Acute Care, Mental Health, Early Intervention, Home Health, and Ethics.

Courses released in June 2023 or later feature all of the accessibility features offered by YouTube, including closed captions and a live transcript. We can also generate full PDF transcripts for any of our podcast episodes by request. Simply contact us to get a copy.

In week 1 of our 2-week cycle, you’ll receive an easy-to-read journal article review based on important OT-related research. The following week, we'll release a new podcast-based course diving into that research.

Cancel your membership renewal anytime from your account settings. When you cancel, you’ll still be able to use your plan until the end of your subscription period.
