Missouri Board of Occupational Therapy Continuing Competency
The Missouri Board of Occupational Therapy has developed a continuing
competency rule that parallels that of NBCOT so that Occupational
Therapy practitioners in Missouri do not have to meet two separate
competency requirements. Current regulations and requirements for
renewing licensure in Missouri can be found on the website for the
Missouri Board of Occupational Therapy.
All Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants will need to renew their licenses by June 30, 2013.
You will need to accrue
24 CCCs between July 1, 2007, and June 30, 2013.
While you do not have to send in a record of your continuing competency participation with your licensure application, the Missouri Board does recommend that you keep a log of your credits in case you are selected for an audit. (Therapists and Therapy Assistants to be audited are selected randomly.)
