CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT

Many educators wish to use their student supervisory experiences to meet continuing clinical competence requirements.  TWU sends ALL certificates of supervision completion at the end of the year (December) via email to all documented educators.  If an educator needs this information sooner due to renewal or audit needs, please contact the office at otfieldwork@twu.edu to request the certification early.  Certifications cannot be emailed prior to completion of fieldwork supervision.  Students will be asking for educator email confirmation during their fieldwork experiences as part of a requirement assignment, please be sure this is accurate as it is how the fieldwork team communicates to the educator regarding student, site or continuing education needs.

Texas educators must refer to TBOTE’s website (link below) for credit allowed for fieldwork supervision. The outline for fieldwork hours is listed in the OT Rules. Hours are dependent on length of supervision time.  It is important for educator’s splitting student supervision to accurately align their supervisory time to the appropriate units, as this is often an individual need.

NBCOT PDU’s are also available for fieldwork supervision Other states may have different requirements related to continuing competence hours and fieldwork supervision.  Please review desired state licensing agency for information.
