Registrants for the APTA Conference & Exposition have the opportunity to earn up to 2.0 CEUs. Registrants for the Virtual Conference, only, may earn up to 1.2 CEUs. Claiming CEUs or submitting a transcript for both learning activities will not be verified by APTA in case of an audit by the state licensing board.
