CEU Opportunity! RT Institute

We are excited to announce that, again this year, OAHPHERD’s annual convention will feature an Institute designed to offer CEU’s to local CTRS! 

Now you are probably asking yourself what is a CTRS? CTRS stands for Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist.  CTRS work in a variety of settings from hospitals to community programs. We specialize in using recreational activities to help individuals reach treatment goals and to improve quality of life.  We may be targeting these sessions to the CTRS community but we invite everyone attending OAHPERD to come check out our outstanding speakers! We have qualified speakers who will be presenting on a number of exciting topics. 

You don’t have to be a CTRS to want to learn more about the hooking a Veteran on fishing or how to engage at risk youth in summer recreational programming. We are very excited about all of our speakers and we look forward to seeing you all at the Convention! 

CEU information: This conference will offer a variety of qualified speakers and topics. Registrants who attend all day will receive .65 CEUs.
