Maintain Your National Board Certification
Certification renewal recognizes that you, the OTR® or COTA®, have met a national standard for professionalism and promotes continued professional development. We believe that continually supporting your practice has long-term benefits for all stakeholders.
By completing all certification renewal requirements by your scheduled renewal date, you will be granted Active in Good Standing certification status for another three years. The certification renewal season occurs between January and March annually.
