Each state has different guidelines on what can count toward your professional development requirements. Be sure to check your state requirements. While we consult with state and NBCOT documents in attempt to ensure our courses meet national guidelines, the OT Schoolhouse is not responsible for any courses that your state or national agency questions or refuses to accept as professional development.
