OTR CERTIFICATION EXAM CHANGES IN 2013

Rate this Entry

by Chris Musillo


The National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) has announced that starting July 1, 2013, internationally educated occupational therapists will have new minimum educational standards to be eligible for the OTR Certification Exam. Internationally educated occupational therapists must either:



  • Completion of an Entry-Level Bachelor's Degree in Occupational Therapy from a government authorized and/or WFOT approved college or university occupational therapy educational programAND a Post Professional Masters Degree in Occupational Therapy OR



  • Completion of an Entry-Level Master's Degree in Occupational Therapy from a government authorized and/or WFOT approved college or university occupational therapy educational program


NBCOT's Occupational Therapist Eligibility Determination (OTED) will be used to determine comparability to US accreditation occupational therapy educational standards and competencies. All internationally-educated occupational therapists approved for exam eligibility under current OTED eligibility standards must take and pass the OTR certification examination prior to July 1, 2013 if they do not hold an occupational therapy master's degree deemed comparable to a U.S. entry-level accredited master's degree in occupational therapy. After July 2013, internationally-educated occupational therapists will not be eligible for the OTR if they do not hold a US equivalent occupational therapy master's degree.


NBCOT is the not-for-profit credentialing agency that provides certification for the occupational therapy profession.
