New York Occupational Therapy Continuing Education Requirements: Click Here
  • Effective February 13, 2013, to renew your registration as an Occupational Therapist or Occupational Therapy Assistant, New York State Education Law requires completion of 36 contact hours of approved continuing competency within each three-year renewal period. However, these requirements will be phased in during the first three years, therefore, only requiring one-half hour of continuing competency for each month beginning in March 2013 through February 2016, for those registrants whose three-year renewal period falls within this time frame. Commencing with March 2016, registrants will be required to complete the full 36 hours of continuing competency. The complete standards for continuing competency for Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants can be found in section 76.10 of the Commissioner’s Rules and Regulations. 
  • Effective February 13, 2013, to renew your registration as an occupational therapist and occupational therapy assistant, New York State Education Law requires the completion of 36 hours of continuing education during each 3-year registration period. However, if your renewal date falls between 3/1/13 through 1/31/16, you will only be required to complete a portion of the required competency hours. Please see pro-rate chart below.

    Please Note: A licensee seeking registration as both an occupational therapist AND occupational therapy assistant must complete a total of 72 hours in compliance with the requirements for both registrations.

  • Formal Academic Study, Continuing Education Courses, and/or Workshops: Courses, workshops, or seminars offered by an approved continuing education sponsor, credit-bearing academic study offered by an accredited college or university, or in-service training programs offered by an employer to its employees, or self-study. Self study is structured study based on audio, audio-visual, written, on-line and other media. In service training programs and self-study must be offered by an approved sponsor. No more than two-thirds (24 hours) of the continuing competency requirement may be completed through self-study.
