within 12 months after graduation
The entry-level OTD program has been granted Candidacy status by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), located at 4720 Montgomery Lane, Suite 200, Bethesda, MD 20814-3449; (301) 652-AOTA; www.acoteonline.org.
Once accreditation is granted, the program’s graduates will be eligible to sit for the national certification examination for the occupational therapist administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT).
After successful completion of this exam, the individual will officially be an Occupational Therapist, registered by OTR. Most states require licensure in order to practice; state licenses are usually based on the results of the NBCOT certification examination. A felony conviction may affect a graduate’s eligibility to sit for the NBCOT certification exam or to obtain state licensure.
