Dry Needling Sponsored Courses

Vendors Approved for Sponsorship by APTA Maryland

The Maryland Board of Physical Therapy Examiners has approved dry needling courses for continuing education purposes; those licensees who have paid monies to take those courses for continuing education credit will not lose their continuing education credits.

Previous Coursework approved by the Maryland Board of Physical Therapy Examiners does not count towards any course for the purpose of dry needling registration identified in COMAR 10.38.12.03.

The regulations do permit for the evaluation of coursework taken prior to the required registration date. Specifically, continuing education coursework take before the required registration date “shall qualify for instruction if the same course, in substantially similar form, is later sponsored by the American Physical Therapy Association, the APTA of Maryland, or the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy.” (COMAR 10.38.12.03C) Licensees have the opportunity to use prior coursework if the requirements of the regulations are met.
