Professional Certification

To be a practicing occupational therapist, graduates must take and pass the certification exam administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy.  After successfully completing the exam the graduate is certified as an Occupational Therapist, Registered. Most states require additional licensure in order to practice; however, state licenses are usually based on the results of the NBCOT Certification Examination.

NBCOT and State Licensing Boards have the right to refuse to grant occupational therapy certification and/or license to any individuals regardless of their educational credentials under circumstances of:

  • Falsification of application.
  • Conviction of a felony or crime of moral turpitude.
  • Other moral and legal violations specified in relevant state laws.
