NPTE® Workshop for Educators

FSBPT is hosting an in-person NPTE Workshop for Educators on February 21-22, 2023, in San Diego, CA. This workshop immediately precedes the APTA-CSM conference. The workshop will be held at the Hyatt Regency Mission Bay, and there will be a special room rate available to attendees. The workshop is expected to run from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on the first day and from 8:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. on the second day—however, attendees can stay as late as 6:00 p.m. for individualized instruction. Lunch and refreshments will be provided. The workshop fee is $750, and there is an additional fee of $50 if you want a printed version of the electronic materials.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do I get continuing education (CE) credit for attending the course? If so, how much?

Q: What if I can only come to part of the workshop?
A: Participants are expected to attend the entire workshop. The workshop is in high demand, so if you cannot participate in the entire workshop, please allow someone else to take the spot.

Q: Do I need to bring textbooks with me to the workshop?
