Welcome-

  to purposeful learning with Ptarmigan West!

                                      More than just a CEU.
                        Unique classes to help you succeed!

                  All classes come with everything you need.
                             No books to buy!   No hidden fees!

                               NCTRC Pre-Approved classes.
                 (No additional fee for your CEU certificate.)

Here, at  Ptarmigan West’s  “Recreation Therapy E-Learning”  website,  you’ll be able to take  CEUs for your re-certification.   All classes are NCTRC Pre-Approved! It’s great to get CEUs from home, work or on your commute.   We live in an age where we can do so much from our computer and  tablets.  Why not CEUs as well?   Currently we offer 18 classes, and these will grow each quarter.   Because you’re taking these on-line, we want you to benefit from being on the computer.  That’s why some of your work will be surfing the internet with links we provide to give you more indepth learning.  This is part of the “E-learning Manifesto” that Ptarmigan West committed to over four years ago. (May 28, 2014) All signers of this manifesto say that we will work to make the CEUs more than just a learn and spit the information out for a test (although you do have to take a test.)  The idea is that you will go into more depth because you are on the internet.  What a great idea to be a part of!  Ptarmigan West will   continue to  uphold the ideals of the “E-learning Manifesto“.

What is an Online Course? Our Online Courses include a PDF handout, a video formatted PowerPoint and some homework that’s offered for CEUs. Unlike a webinar, which requires participants to be logged on and at a computer at specific times, our Online Courses are available to you at any time, from any computer, via your Recreation Therapy Elearning account. You may work at your own pace and start and stop your course as you wish. Your course will conclude with a short post test. On successful completion of the post test (>70%) a printable certificate of completion is presented to you.

Take a class today!  We will be adding new topics and categories. What do you like?  What would you change?  We want this to be a place that you come to learn something new and something that will keep you motivated as a therapist.  In turn, we get motivated learning from you.  Your input is imperative to the success of this tool.

Relax.  Brew a cup of coffee or tea.  Sit back and learn.  And then….. print your certificate…. because all of our classes are Pre-approved with NCTRC.  There is no additional fee for your CEU certificate.  (It’s included in the cost of the class.)
