The National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy recently issued a reminder about Occupational Therapy Eligibility Determination (OTED) standards.  The OTED processes applications from non-US trained Occupational Therapists.  The criteria for submitting an OTED application is that the foreign-trained OT must have an educational background that is comparable to a US-entry Occupational Therapist.  This entry standard has been a master’s degree since January 1, 2013.

OTED now reminds applicants that after July 31, 2013 all applications will be closed unless the application includes evidence that a US-equivalent Master’s Degree has been obtained.  Documentary evidence includes:

- Official school transcript
- Official Course Syllabi with descriptions
Verification of Academic Credential Form
- Program Director Form

- Verification of OT License, Registration, Certification or Other Form of Official Government Recognition Request form
