 Approved Provider Program

Approved Provider Program (APP) for providers of continuing education courses. 

LOTA Approved Provider Program is available to:

The LOTA Approved Provider Program (APP) is available to authorize continuing education providers to be able to issue LOTA continuing education (CE) hours. These CE hours are pre-approved by the Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners (LSBME).

The APP is typically preferable over the individual CE approval route for those providers who offer multiple courses per calendar year. CE providers who plan to offer only a single course per year may better benefit from LOTA's individual course approval.

The LOTA APP assures that continuing education offered by Approved Providers is relevant to OT practitioners in the state of Louisiana and corresponds with criteria for continuing education described by the LSBME. 

Benefits of becoming an Approved Provider:

CE providers who meet criteria and agree to adhere to the following program guidelines will receive the designation of Approved Provider by LOTA and have their courses posted on the LOTA website prior to the course date.

  • Recognition throughout the profession that the provider's courses have met LOTA’s Approved Provider standards as quality continuing education activities.
  • Recognition by Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners (LSBME) that your courses are pre-approved for practitioner licensure renewal.
  • Free basic course listings on our LOTA website.
  • Opportunities for marketing/e-blasting state OTs/COTAs.

Interested in Becoming an Approved Provider?

Prospective Approved Providers must submit an application to LOTA. Applications will be reviewed by at least three members of the LOTA APP Committee. LOTA's APP Committee reviews materials submitted to LOTA by Approved Providers to assure quality of offerings and provides random audits of Approved Providers.
