What is a Video Course?
Video courses are slide show presentations with voice over that are streamed from our web site and viewed on your computer. Often, these presentations include multimedia, as well. You can play, pause, rewind and review these courses as needed. Some Video courses are recorded versions of Live webinars held on the web site, others are presentations produced specifically for this format. As the courses are self-paced, you can watch a Video during one session or over several sessions.
Can I earn CEUs/Hours for a Video Course?
YES! The vast majority of Video Courses are offered for CEUs/Hours, but you must verify which courses are offered for credit and by which state association. Please note that once a Video Course is selected, you have 30 days past the selection date to take the CE Test and earn CEUs/Hours.

It is at the discretion of the Presenter if there will be any handouts for a given course, therefore, not all Video courses will have handouts that can be downloaded and printed out. Download files are typically in PDF format. Click here to download and install Adobe Reader (free).

Troubleshooting / What should I do if I cannot access a Video Course?
Here are the most common steps you can take if you are having trouble accessing a Video course:
Step 1: Make note of any error message that you have seen. This will be important if you need to call us for technical support.
Step 2: Make sure that you have installed both the Adobe Acrobat Connect Add-in and Flash Player. To perform a diagnostic test of your computer which will install any missing applications. The link includes a series of 4 tests; upon completion of each test, a black checkmark will appear to the left of the number with success. If you are prompted to install the Adobe Acrobat Connect add-in or Flash player, please do so. Upon successful completion, log back into the recorded course via your PhysicalTherapy.com user account. If you are unable to complete the diagnostic series of tests, please contact Technical Support for assistance at 866-782-6258
Step 3: Make sure you have installed Windows Media Player on your local machine. To download the free Windows Media Player for your PC or Mac, please click here.
Step 4: Disable all pop-up blockers. Because a Video course opens in a new window, a pop-up blocker may prohibit the course from opening correctly.
Step 5: Clean Out Temporary Internet Files. The Video courses are typically a large file size. The course begins to play as it temporarily downloads to your machine and continues to stream throughout the duration of the course. Since information regarding the Video course downloads temporarily to your Temporary Internet Files, cleaning out your temporary internet files is recommended. This section of your computer typically has a size limit; if you have reached the allowed size limit, the recorded course may stop abruptly.
Internet Explorer: Please open Internet Explorer and click on Tools → Internet Options. Click on the section on the first page of the menu titled "Browsing History" and select "Delete.” Next, locate and click the Delete button for the section labeled "Temporary Internet Files.” Allow the system to clean out the temporary files and Click OK when complete.
To upgrade the disk space of temporary files, open Internet Explorer and click on Tools → Internet Options. Click on the section of the first page of the menu titled "Browsing History" and select "Settings.” (Some versions of IE show a section called Temporary Internet Files; you can select "Settings" here, as well). You can increase the capacity of your temporary folder; we recommended that you allow 300 MB of space.
Mozilla Firefox: Please open Mozilla Firefox and click on Tools → Options → Advanced → Network; cache is a section on the Network tab. You can increase the capacity of your temporary cache; we recommended that you allow 300 MB of space.
