Certification and Licensure
The program is designed to prepare students, upon completion of degree requirements, to sit for the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) for the practice of occupational therapy. To practice as an occupational therapist, students must pass this exam.
After passing the NBCOT certification examination, students may apply for licensure in the state or states they choose to practice in. ECPTOTE is the Texas Board of Occupational Therapy examiners licensing agency (www.ptot.texas.gov/occupationaltherapy). Each state has it’s own licensing rules and fees.
