Graduates of the program will be eligible to sit for the national certification examination for the occupational therapy assistant administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT). After successful completion of this exam, the individual will be a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant (COTA). In addition, most states require licensure in order to practice. However, state licenses are usually based on the results of the NBCOT Certification Examination. Note that a felony or misdemeanor conviction may affect a graduate’s ability to sit for the NBCOT certification examination or attain state licensure.
