Eligibility to attend Herman & Wallace Continuing Education Courses

Herman & Wallace continuing education seminars are targeted to physical therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapist assistants, occupational therapist assistants, registered nurses, nurse midwives, and other rehabilitation professionals. Content is not intended for use outside the scope of the learner's license or regulation. Individuals who are not licensed or otherwise regulated, except, as they are involved in a specific plan of care, should not attend continuing education courses for providers of prescriptive and/or rehabilitative care. It is the responsibility of the registrant to ensure that the content of any given Herman & Wallace course that he or she wishes to attend is within the scope of practice defined by the state board regulating their profession.

By agreeing to the Herman & Wallace Continuing Education Course Registrant Terms and Conditions, registrant agrees that she or he has reviewed all relevant information regarding his or her scope of practice and is operating within the scope of his or her license. Individuals without state-approved licenses to provide prescriptive, or medical, care are specifically not allowed to attend Herman & Wallace continuing education courses, regardless of whatever qualifications, personal or professional history, or experience an individual may have. Individuals who have registered and paid for a Herman & Wallace course, and are determined to be ineligible (see a list of eligible professions here) to attend said course, will be given full refund for their registrations fees. Such individuals will not be reimbursed for any travel or 3rd part costs they have have incurred beyond the cost of their registration.

 

Right to Refuse Service 

In order to maintain a positive and healthy learning environment for all of our participants, Herman & Wallace reserves the right to refuse service to any registrant(s). Herman & Wallace will refuse service to any registrants who display one or more of the following behavior(s):

  • Unruly behavior that detracts from the learning environment for other participants
  • Verbally threatening an instructor, lab assistant, site host, or other registrant
  • Unwillingness to comply with instructor's direction during lab work
  • Behavior that may result in physical/mental self-harm, or physical/mental harm to another individual present at a course
  • Failure to pay registration fees in full, prior to the start of a given course

Additionally, Herman & Wallace reserves the right to refuse service to any individual for any other reason (not listed above), that in the opinion of the course instructor, would materially detract from the learning experience of other registrants. Any individual who has been refused service will be asked to leave the course premises, and to not return until after the completion of the course. Should an individual be asked to leave the course premises, and this individual refuses to do so, the course instructor(s) or lab assistant(s) will contact the security services of the hosting institution, and/or local law enforcement, and ask that they remove the individual in question.

The course instructor shall have the right enforce these terms and conditions as s/he sees fit in order to create the best learning environment for all Herman & Wallace registrants.

Registrants who are asked to leave a course prior to the course completion are not eligible for a refund of their registration fees - either in part or in whole. Registrants who are asked to leave a course prior to course completion may contact Herman & Wallace to request a custom certificate of completion, reflecting the actual number of continuing education hours during which the individual was present at the course prior to being asked to leave.

 

Accommodations for Registrants with Disabilities

Herman & Wallace encourages all properly licensed professionals, regardless of physical disability, to attend our continuing education courses. Herman & Wallace does not sponsor any continuing courses at locations owned or leased by Herman & Wallace. Herman & Wallace does sponsor courses at 3rd party locations (hosting institutions) such as private clinics, hospitals and medical centers, and college and universities. All hosting institutions with which Herman & Wallace works are subject to the Americans with Disabilities Act. Although some of a host institutions physical facilities may have been constructed before the passage of the ADA, and are thus "grandfathered in" to compliance with the ADA.

A Herman & Wallace course registrant with a disability (or multiple disabilities) can expect the same treatment and access accommodations from the hosting institution of a given continuing education course, as the hosting institution would extend to any other guest, patient, or colleague.

Should any differently-able continuing education course registrant request accommodations from Herman & Wallace beyond what we would extend to normally-able registrants, Herman & Wallace will do our best to make accommodations (within our power and capacity) for that individual.

 

Cancellation by Sponsor 

Herman & Wallace is committed to successfully executing 100% of the courses on its schedule, and does not cancel courses due to low enrollment. In the event of unforeseeable events beyond the control of Herman & Wallace Inc. (a non-exhaustive list of which include: natural disaster, war, terrorism, labor strike, cancellation of flights by airlines or other circumstances related to travel plans that prevent an instructor from arriving at a course in a timely manner, or severe illness or death of the instructor, etc. ) a good faith effort will be made to execute the course or an acceptable substitute course. However, if a course cannot be held as a result of any of the above unforeseeable events (or for other unforeseeable events not list above) then the following terms apply:

A. Herman & Wallace will either refund the registration fee paid by each attendee, or convert the registration fee to a registrant credit that can be used toward any future course-event, whichever the registrant chooses.

B. Herman & Wallace will not be held liable for any expenses or costs that cancelled-course-registrants incurred related to: travel, lodging, missed work, airfare, ground transportation, meals, or any other costs related to their attempting to attend a cancelled course-event. 

C. The maximum liability for which Herman & Wallace Inc. is responsible to any registrant will not exceed that person's registration fees.

 

Cancellation by Participant

Should a registrant wish to cancel their registration in a future course, the following terms apply:

Cancellation and receiving a refund

A participant may cancel their registration in a given course, and receive a refund (less a $75 administrative fee), if he or she notifies Herman & Wallace of their desire to cancel their registration and receive a refund before whichever of the following days arrives first:

1. The 60th day following the original registration date.

2. The 30th day preceding the start of the course

The $75 administrative cancellation fee applies with ABSOLUTELY NO exceptions. If a participants wishes to cancel two or more registrations in this manner, each subsequent cancellation after the first shall carry a $25 administration cancellation fee. For "pending registrations" (See "Registration and Payment at a later date" below) the original registration date is defined as the registrant's invoice date, which is clearly listed on the invoice. The date Herman & Wallace receives payment for a pending registration does not affect that registration's eligibility for a refund.

 

As a means of example, consider a person who:

A. On April 1st of a given year, had registered for a course-event starting on August 1st of that same year. On May 15th, the registrant contacts Herman & Wallace to request a refund. The registrant is eligible for a refund, because the course-event starts in more than 30 days (May 15th to August 1st), and the registrant made the refund request within 60 days of the registration date (April 1st to May 15th).


B. On April 1st of a given year, had registered for a course-event starting on August 1st of that same year. On June 15th, the registrant contacts Herman & Wallace to request a refund. The registrant is NOT eligible for a refund. Although the course-event starts in more than 30 days (June 15th to August 1st), more than 60 days have taken place between the registration date and the date of the refund request (April 1st to June 15th).


C. On April 1st of a given year, had registered for a course-event starting on August 1st of that same year. On July 15th, the registrant contacts Herman & Wallace to request a refund. The registrant is NOT eligible for a refund. The course-event is less than 30 days away (July 15th to Aug 1st) and the registrant made the refund request more than 60 days from the registration date (April 1st to July 15th).


D. On April 1st of a given year, had registered for a course-event starting on June 1st of that same year. On April 15th, the registrant contacts Herman & Wallace to request a refund. The registrant is eligible for a refund, because the course-event starts in more than 30 days (April 15th to June 1st), and the registrant made the refund request within 60 days of the registration date (April 1st to April 15th).


E. On April 1st of a given year, had registered for a course-event starting on June 1st of that same year. On May 15th, the registrant contacts Herman & Wallace to request a refund. The registrant is NOT eligible for a refund. Although less than 60 days have taken place between the registration date and the date of the refund request (April 1st to May 15th) the course-event starts in less than 30 days (May 15th to June 1st).


F. On April 1st of a given year, had registered for a course-event starting on April 21st of that same year. On April 15th, the registrant contacts Herman & Wallace to request a refund. The registrant is NOT eligible for a refund. Although less than 60 days have taken place between the registration date and the date of the refund request (April 1st to April 15th) the course-event starts in less than 30 days (April 15th to April 21st).

 

Cancellation without receiving a refund:

Should a registrant wish to cancel their registration and either transfer to another course or convert their registration fees to registrant credit, they must inform via phone, voicemail, email, or website form submission Herman & Wallace of their intention BEFORE the start of the course-event for which they are registered. Once a course-event commences (i.e. the first lecture begins), all registrants who have not communicated to Herman & Wallace Inc. their intention to transfer/convert-to-credit their registration fee for the course-event in question are no longer eligible to transfer/convert-to-credit their registration fee for the course-event in question REGARDLESS of their physical presence, or lack thereof, at the location of the course-event. In other words, if a registrant pays to attend a course and then forgets to attend, or wishes to cancel/transfer but does not inform Herman & Wallace before the start of the course-event, they are neither entitled to a refund, nor to apply their registration fee toward a future course-event, be it known or unknown.

At any point before the first lecture of a course starts, participants may cancel their registration and:

1. Transfer registration fees towards a future course at no financial penalty. If the registration fee of the course-event into which the registrant wishes to transfer is greater than the registration fee of the event from which the registrant wishes to vacate, the registrant will be required to pay the difference between these two amounts before receiving confirmation of their registration for their course event into which they are transferring. If the registration fee of the course-event into which the registrant wishes to transfer is less than the registration fee of the event from which the registrant wishes to vacate, Herman & Wallace will convert the difference to registrant credit to be used towards a future course event to be named. Should a registrant register for course A, and then at a later date, cancel their registration in course A, and transfer into course B in the manner described above, their registration remains eligible for a refund only if the 60th day following their original registration date for course A has yet to take place. The date the registrant transfers into course B does not affect the registration's eligibility for a refund. This remains the case for all subsequent transfers beyond the first.

The date on which a registrant informs Herman & Wallace of their desire to transfer from a course for which they originally registered and paid, to a different course of their choice, is defined as the "original transfer date". Once a registrant transfers from one course to another, that registrant may use the registration fees from their original registration toward a course(s) with a start-date within two years of the registration's "original transfer date". The registrant may not transfer into a course with a start-date greater than two years from their "original transfer date". Subsequent transfers beyond the first do not change or affect a registration's "original transfer date".

OR

2. Instruct Herman & Wallace to convert their registration fees to credit to be used toward some course-event to be named in the future at no financial penalty. Should a registrant register for a course, and then at a later date, cancel their registration in a course, and notify Herman & Wallace of their desire to convert the registration fee for the course to credit to be used for a future course yet to be named, the following terms apply:

I. Their registration remains eligible for a refund only if the 60th day following the registrant’s original registration date for course A has yet to take place. The date the registrant notifies Herman & Wallace of their desire to convert their registration fee to credit to be used for a future course yet to be named does not effect the registration's eligibility for a refund.

II. This credit can be used toward any course-event with a start date taking place within 2 years following the date that the registrant notifies Herman & Wallace of their desire to cancel their registration and convert their registration fee for the course to credit to be used for a future course yet to be named.

3. Regardless of the number and nature of transfers, cancelations, conversions to credit; fees for a cancelled registration may only be used toward a course-event with a start date of less than 2 years from the date the registrant cancelled their original registration.

  

Transferability of Registration and Credit between Individuals:

Herman & Wallace allows registrants to cancel a registration, and transfer that registration to another individual under the following circumstances:

1. Both the individual canceling and transferring the registration, and the individual receiving the transfer registration, must be employed by the same organization. 

Employers may transfer registrations from former employees to current employees in this manner. For example, Employer A has registered Employee X for a Herman & Wallace course, creating "Registration #1", and before that course takes place, Employee X quits their job at Employer A; Employer A shall have the right to transfer "Registration #1" to Employee B, creating "Registration #2"

Employers may also cancel an employee's registration, and convert that employee's registration fees to credit to be used for a future course to be determined. This credit can be held in the name of the employee, or if the employee no longer works for the employer, it may be held in the name of the employer, and can be used by another employee of the employer's choosing.

 

2. The individual canceling and transferring the registration, must notify Herman & Wallace via email or web form submission of their desire to cancel their registration and transfer it to another individual. This written notice must include:

A. The name of the registrant canceling and transferring the registration

B. The confirmation number of the registration being transferred

C. The name of the individual receiving the transfer registration

D. The email address of the individual receiving the transfer registration.

If an employer wishes to cancel an employee's registration, and convert the registration to future course credit held in the name of the employer, the employer must notify Herman & Wallace via email or web form submission a notice of their desire to cancel the employee's registration and convert it to future course credit. This written notice must include:

A. The name of the employee who's registration is to be cancelled

B. The confirmation number of the registration being cancelled

C. The name of the employer under which the credit will be held. 

 

3. Herman & Wallace does not allow individuals to "sell" a registration in a future course to another individual. If someone submits a request to transfer a registration from one person to another, and Herman & Wallace determines that the two individuals in question are not employees of the same organization, we reserve the right to deny the request to transfer the registration between the two individuals.

 

 

Registration, Payment Options, and Waitlist Additions

Herman & Wallace accepts registrations on a first-come, first served basis. Only those registrants who have completed 100% of the registration process will be guaranteed a seat at a given continuing education course. Herman & Wallace cannot hold spaces in our courses for those registrants who have not completed 100% of the registration process. There are three basic methods by which potential attendees may register and pay for Herman & Wallace courses:

  

Online Payment and Registration

To register online, registrants must complete all steps of the registration process and submit payment in order to confirm their place in a given course. Our system will immediately send a confirmation email to the registrant upon proper completion of all registration steps including credit card payment. If a registrant completes the online registration process, submits their payment information through our website, and receives their confirmation email, their registration is complete and no further steps are required.

 

Registration and Payment by Phone 

If a potential registrant wishes to attend one of our courses and pay with a credit card over the phone, he or she must contact us (by phone, email, or web submission form) and we will contact the potential registrant to complete the transaction over the phone. A member of our team will process the credit card transaction for the registrant and email the registrant the confirmation number for his or her registration.

  

Registration and Payment at a later date

If a potential registrant wishes to attend one of our courses and pay at a date after their registration date, he or she must contact us (by phone, email, or web submission form) and request an invoice. A member of our team will create an invoice for the registrant and email the invoice, and confirmation number, to the registrant. Within 30 days of the invoice date, the registrant, or a colleague of the registrant, must pay the invoice in full. Until Herman & Wallace receives payment in full, a registration for which the registrant has yet to fully pay is considered “pending” and that registrant shall not be allowed to attend a course-event for which they have a “pending” registration. Herman & Wallace must receive payment before a pending registration is considered active, thus enabling the registrant to attend the course-event in question.

Herman & Wallace is able to accept the following forms of payment for pending registrations:

1. Credit Card Payment over the phone - call us at 646-355-8777

2. Paypal via email (contact us to request this) - payable with a credit card or Paypal balance

3. ACH Bank Transfer - click the green "View Invoice" button in the email containing your invoice and follow the directions

4. Physical Check. Those wishing to pay via check must mail a check, AND a copy of the Herman & Wallace invoice, to the Herman & Wallace mailing address below:

Herman & Wallace
113 Cherry St.
Suite 71393
Seattle, WA 98104

Any checks sent to Herman & Wallace not accompanied by, or associated with, a Herman & Wallace open invoice will be deposited into a Herman & Wallace bank account. Herman & Wallace's depositing of a check in this instance does not constitute confirmation of registration or guarantee a potential registrant a seat in a given course. If a potential registrant mails Herman & Wallace a check in this manner for a course that is already full, monies will be refunded or put towards a future course.

 

Waitlist Additions

Wait list additions are also on a first come, first-served basis. In the case a registration for a sold-out course is cancelled, Herman & Wallace will contact the person at the top of the list and offer him or her the open seat in the course. The person at the top of the list may register for the course or not, in the event that he or she does not register for the course, Herman & Wallace will contact the next person on the waitlist of offer them a place in the course. Herman & Wallace will continue this process until no remaining places are available in the course

 


Release of Liability

Registrant agrees that they are engaging Herman & Wallace for the purpose of providing physical therapy, rehabilitative, manual therapy, and exercise training instruction. In consideration for this instruction, registrant releases Herman & Wallace, its owners, agents, employees, and contractors and agree to hold them harmless from any and all liability, claims, damages, actions and causes of action whatsoever, for loss, damages, or injury to person or property, irrespective of how arising and however caused, including but not limited to all kinds, degrees, and extents of negligence of Herman & Wallace, its owners, agents, employees, and contractors, whether directly or indirectly related to this physical therapy, rehabilitative, manual therapy and exercise training instruction, or the facilities and equipment used in conjunction with and/or related to such instruction.

 

Registrant further agrees that all of registrant’s physical and medical conditions, limitations, and sensitivities will be disclosed to Herman & Wallace course instructors, and hereby releases and holds Herman & Wallace, its owners, agents, employees, and contractors harmless from any liability, claims, damages, actions, causes of action whatsoever in any way relating to or arising from said conditions, limitations, or sensitivities. Registrant expressly agrees that all physical therapy, rehabilitative, and strength training instruction and use of all facilities and equipment shall be undertaken at their own risk, and represents that they are physically and medically able to undertake any and all physical therapy, rehabilitative, and strength training instruction provided and the activities related thereto.

 

Registrant understands and agrees that this release and waiver of liability constitutes of complete waiver of their right to take legal action and collect damages from Herman & Wallace related to any claim arising from registrant’s attendance at, and participation in, any Herman & Wallace Continuing Education Course.

 

Registrant agrees that their relationship with Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute, contractual or otherwise, is and shall be governed by the laws of the State of Washington, and consents to the jurisdiction of the State of Washington as the sole forum regarding this Release of Liability. If any portion of this Release of Liability is found by a court or other appropriate authority to be invalid then the remainder of this Release of Liability shall remain in full force and effect.

 

End of Release of Liability


 

Approval of Herman & Wallace Courses for Continuing Education or Continuing Competence Re-licensure Requirements

Every state has its own legislation and rules for physical therapists seeking re-licensure. Some states have a continuing education re-licensure requirement, and some states do not. On occasion, state licensing entities and/or legislatures will alter existing regulations and laws related to physical therapy continuing education re- licensure requirements. It is the responsibility of each registrant to know the laws and regulations of the state in which they are licensed.

 

All of the information in this document related to continuing education requirements reflects the current laws and regulations of the physical therapy licensing entities of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia. Registrants licensed in fields other than physical therapy and registrants licensed to practice physical therapy or physiotherapy outside of the United States are welcome to attend Herman & Wallace course, so long as the content of the course that the registrant wishes to attend falls within the scope of their practice. Registrants licensed in fields other than physical therapy and registrants licensed to practice physical therapy or physiotherapy outside of the United States should consult the continuing education requirements of their licensing agencies to determine what steps are necessary to earn containing education credit when attending Herman & Wallace courses.

 

Other than instances detailed in this document, a registrant(s) in a given Herman & Wallace course should assume that Herman & Wallace WILL NOT submit an application for a given course to be approved as counting towards the continuing education re-licensure requirements in the state in which that registrant is licensed to practice.

 

A. States (20) that consider Herman & Wallace an approved provider of physical therapy continuing education

The California Chapter of the American Physical Therapy Association (CCAPTA) has granted Herman & Wallace status as an approved provider of continuing education for physical therapists and physical therapist assistants (Approval Number CPTAAP-03).

The State of Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation has granted Herman & Wallace status as an approved provider of continuing education for physical therapists and physical therapist assistants (Approval number: 216.000291.)

The State of New York Department of Education has granted Herman & Wallace status as an approved provider of continuing education for physical therapists and physical therapist assistants.

The State of Texas Physical Therapy Association has granted Herman & Wallace status as an approved provider of continuing education for physical therapists and physical therapist assistants (Approval number: 2004039TX.)

As a result of Herman & Wallace earning status as an approved provider in New York, California, Illinois, and Texas:

1. All Herman & Wallace courses, regardless of the physical location of the courses, are approved as applying toward the continuing education re-licensure requirement of physical therapists licensed in California, New York, Illinois, and Texas AND

2. According to state law and/or regulation, all Herman & Wallace courses, regardless of the physical location of the courses, are approved as applying toward the continuing education re-licensure requirement of physical therapists licensed in: 

  1. Alaska
  2. Arizona
  3. California
  4. Delaware
  5. District of Columbia
  6. Georgia
  7. Illinois
  8. Indiana
  9. Kentucky
  10. Mississippi
  11. Missouri
  12. New York
  13. North Carolina
  14. Oregon
  15. Rhode Island
  16. Texas
  17. Utah
  18. Vermont
  19. Virginia
  20. Wyoming

 

Given that each of the above states considers all Herman & Wallace courses approved according to state law or regulation, Herman & Wallace will not apply to have any one individual course approved by any of the above state’s physical therapy licensing entities.

 

B. States (5) with no continuing education re-licensure requirement of physical therapists

The following states EITHER have no continuing education re-licensure requirement for physical therapists, OR

have recently enacted legislation creating continuing education re-licensure requirement for physical therapists and have yet to publish specific regulations regarding the approval process for continuing education courses:

  1. Hawaii
  2. Maine
  3. Massachusetts
  4. Michigan
  5. South Dakota 

 

Until new legislation or regulations are passed in any of the above states, Herman & Wallace will not submit any applications for course approval to the physical therapy licensing entity of any of the above states.

 

C. States (13) with no process for “pre-approving” courses as applying toward continuing education re-licensure requirement of physical therapists. 

The following states have a continuing education re-licensure requirement of physical therapists, however these states DO NOT have a process wherein physical therapy licensees or course sponsors are required, by law, to submit information about the courses that they attend (other than an audit by the state licensing entity of a licensee’s application for re-licensure) or sponsor (in a course sponsor’s case) to an entity that has the power to approves such courses- ensuring that attendance at such will be applied toward continuing education re-licensure requirement: 

  1. Alabama
  2. Colorado
  3. Connecticut
  4. Iowa
  5. Kansas
  6. Montana
  7. Nebraska
  8. New Hampshire
  9. North Dakota
  10. South Carolina
  11. Tennessee
  12. Washington
  13. Wisconsin

Laws and regulations vary in each of the above states; however, the licensing bodies in these states generally require that:

1. Licensees keep a record of having attended enough continuing education courses to meet their state requirement AND

2. Courses must meet some basic minimum qualitative requirements in order to count toward their state’s continuing education re-licensure requirement of physical therapists. The basic requirements often pertain to:

a. The content of the course

b. The experience and/or expertise of the instructor(s)

c. The stated learning objectives of the course

d. The evaluation tools in place to measure the attendees opinions of the course and/or instructor

Licensing entities in the above states will audit a small percentage of applications for re-licensure to ensure that licensees have attended enough hours of qualifying continuing education, and that those courses meet the state requirements of quality/content. 

Herman & Wallace maintains strict standards for course sponsorship. Practicing physical therapists and experienced continuing education instructors, employed by Herman & Wallace, vet all courses (first-time and regularly recurring) for quality of content before Herman & Wallace agrees to sponsor a course.

 

If a registrant:

1. Is licensed to practice in one of the above states, AND

2. Attends a Herman & Wallace course, AND

3. That registrant relies upon their attendance at this Herman & Wallace course to meet their continuing education re-licensure requirements, AND

4. That registrant’s application for re-licensure is audited, AND

5. The entity performing the audit concludes that the Herman & Wallace course the registrant attended did not meet the standards of content/quality for physical therapy continuing education, AND

6. The registrant provides Herman & Wallace with written proof of this conclusion, AND

7. Herman & Wallace is unable to convince the entity performing the audit to reverse their decision, THEN

That registrant is entitled to a refund from Herman & Wallace for the price that registrant originally paid to attend the course in question.

 

D. States (13) in which Herman & Wallace will submit an application for a given course for continuing education re-licensure requirement approval IF

1. Herman & Wallace is sponsoring that given course in that state in the future AND

2. At the time of the event taking-place in the state in question, the given course will NOT be considered an approved course by the state’s licensing entity.

  5. Maryland
  6. New Mexico
  7. Nevada

*Accreditation of a course does not necessarily imply the Florida Physical Therapy Association supports the views of the presenter or the sponsors.

  1. Minnesota
  2. Pennsylvania

 

 

In other words, if a registrant is licensed to practice in one of the above 13 states, and attends a given Herman & Wallace course physically taking place in the state in which this registrant is licensed to practice, the registrant can do so knowing that Herman & Wallace will submit an application for the given course for continuing education re-licensure requirement approval to the licensing entity of the state in which the registrant is licensed to practice.

Herman & Wallace WILL NOT submit an application for a given course for continuing education re-licensure requirement approval to the licensing body of any of the above states UNLESS EITHER

 

1. Herman & Wallace is physically sponsoring that given course in the state in question, OR

2. A registrant enrolled in a given future course contacts Herman & Wallace and requests that Herman & Wallace submit an application for that given future course for continuing education re-licensure requirement approval to the licensing entity of the state in which that registrant is licensed.

Such requests by registrants for Herman & Wallace to submit an application for a given future course for continuing education re-licensure requirement approval to the licensing entity of the state in which that registrant is licensed must be received by Herman & Wallace 10 business days prior to any deadlines imposed by law or regulation of the state in which a registrant practices. Such deadlines vary by state, and it is the sole responsibility of the registrant to make such requests according the law and regulation of their state licensing entity.

At its own discretion, Herman & Wallace may, upon receiving a request from a registrant to submit an application for approval of a given course, elect to not submit an application for approval of that given course. Herman & Wallace will only elect not to submit such an application if the event that there is a process in place for the registrant in question to submit a “licensee” or “individual” application to their state licensing entity. In the event that Herman & Wallace elects not to submit such an application, Herman & Wallace will provide the registrant with all information and documentation (course marketing materials, reference lists, instructor CV…) necessary for the registrant to submit their own individual application to the registrant’s licensing entity in a timely manner. In the event that there is a financial cost associated with a registrant submitting an individual application to their state licensing entity, Herman & Wallace will reimburse the registrant for the cost of submitting such an application. The registrant must provide Herman & Wallace with a receipt, paid invoice, or some other proof of payment acceptable to Herman & Wallace before Herman & Wallace will reimburse the registrant for the cost of submitting the application. Herman & Wallace will either send the registrant a check by mail, or refund the registrant credit card in the amount of the application fee. The registrant may elect to convert 150% of the amount of this reimbursement to future course credit rather than receiving a check or credit card refund. Should the registrant elect to convert their reimbursement to future course credit, the credit is valid for 24 months from the date that the registrant informs Herman & Wallace of their intent to be given future course credit rather than a partial refund.

Each of the above states, with the exception of Minnesota and Pennsylvania, (see the following section for further details on these two states) has a process whereby individual licensees can submit a course to their state licensing entity for approval either after having attended a course. 

 

E. Minnesota and Pennsylvania require physical therapy continuing education courses to be pre-approved by their state licensing entity, or sponsored/approved by a 3rd party specified in state law or regulation in order for attendance at such continuing education courses to count towards a licensee’s continuing education re-licensure requirements. Furthermore, these two states have no process wherein continuing education providers or licensees can apply to have a continuing education course approved after that continuing education course has occurred.

Only when sponsoring a given course in any of these two states, Herman & Wallace will apply to have that given course approved by the licensing entity of the state in which the course is physically taking place. 

Unless explicitly stated by Herman & Wallace that it will submit such an application, Herman & Wallace WILL NOT submit an application to have courses physically taking place in any state other than Minnesota approved by the licensing entity of any of the Minnesota. 

Unless explicitly stated by Herman & Wallace that it will submit such an application, Herman & Wallace WILL NOT submit an application to have courses physically taking place in any state other than Pennsylvania approved by the licensing entity of Pennsylvania.

 

Registrants who are licensed to practice in any of these states, and who attend a Herman & Wallace course physically taking place in a state other than the state in which they are licensed to practice should check to determine if their state licensing entity has already approved the course they plan to attend. If the registrant’s state licensing entity HAS NOT approved the course they plan to attend, AND the registrant would like to attend the course AND the registrant wishes to have their attendance at the course count toward their physical therapy continuing education re-licensure requirements, the registrant should either:

1. Submit an individual application for the approval of the course the licensee wishes to attend to their state licensing entity in a timely manner according to the deadlines imposed by their state licensing agency, OR

2. Contact Herman & Wallace and request that Herman & Wallace submit an application to their state licensing entity for the given course that the registrant wishes to attend.

Such requests by registrants for Herman & Wallace to submit an application for a given future course for continuing education re-licensure requirement approval to the licensing entity of the state in which that registrant is licensed must be received by Herman & Wallace 10 business days prior to any deadlines imposed by law or regulation of the state in which a registrant practices. Such deadlines vary by state, and it is the sole responsibility of the registrant to make such requests according the law and regulation of their state licensing entity.

At its own discretion, Herman & Wallace may, upon receiving a request from a registrant to submit an application for approval of a given course, elect to not submit an application for approval of that given course. Herman & Wallace will only elect not to submit such an application if the event that there is a process in place for the registrant in question to submit a “licensee” or “individual” application to their state licensing entity. In the event that Herman & Wallace elects not to submit such an application, Herman & Wallace will provide the registrant with all information and documentation (course marketing materials, reference lists, instructor CV…) necessary for the registrant to submit their own individual application to the registrant’s licensing entity in a timely manner. In the event that there is a financial cost associated with a registrant submitting an individual application to their state licensing entity, Herman & Wallace will reimburse the registrant for the cost of submitting such an application. The registrant must provide Herman & Wallace with a receipt, paid invoice, or some other proof of payment acceptable to Herman & Wallace before Herman & Wallace will reimburse the registrant for the cost of submitting the application. Herman & Wallace will either send the registrant a check by mail, or refund the registrant credit card in the amount of the application fee. The registrant may elect to convert 150% of the amount of this reimbursement to future course credit rather than receiving a check or credit card refund. Should the registrant elect to convert their reimbursement to future course credit, the credit is valid for 24 months from the date that the registrant informs Herman & Wallace of their intent to be given future course credit rather than a partial refund.
