What is the NBCOT exam?
The NBCOT is short for the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy. The National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy offers the OTR or the Occupational Therapist Registered exam to examine the competency and knowledge of occupational therapist. If the therapist will pass the test, they will receive an Occupational Therapist Registered credential. The OTR credential is mandatory for therapist, so they can practice occupational therapy in the U.S. There is an application fee for the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy exam, for paper applications the fee is $540 and for online applications the fee is $500.
The NBCOT test has one hundred seventy multiple choice questions and three simulation test questions. The simulation questions on the test are interactive questions. In the simulation question, they will provide a scenario that the therapist must analyze and should choose what would be the best action. The computer will provide a response for the action that you choose, and if it is not right they allow you to choose another action. The simulation will continue until it is done. The actions that were selected in the simulation will determine the final score of the therapist.
