Licensure is a key piece of your practitioner journey. An extensive FAQ about licensure is available on our website: https://www.aota.org/career/state-licensure/frequently-asked-questions.
Note: AOTA does not issue licenses. However, we do offer continuing education, certifications in certain practice areas, networking and leadership opportunities, and support of the profession at the state and federal level, all intended to preserve and promote access to occupational therapy services. We support the state regulation of occupational therapy through state licensure laws.
