Certification

Graduates of accredited OTA programs are eligible to take the national certification exam offered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT). Students who complete the Touro College OTA Program and pass the national certification exam are then eligible to apply for professional licensure/certification to practice as an occupational therapy assistant in all states.

Individuals with a past criminal record should contact credentialing agencies directly prior to commencing the OTA Program to ensure that practicing as an OTA will be possible after graduation.
