Applying for Recertification

  • How do I Apply?

  • I am in the military and am currently deployed what are my options?

  • What is required to renew my CHT credential and to recertify?

  • I was a CHT but let my certification lapse. I am interested to know what I need to do to recertify?

  • Why do I have to pay so much for recertification?

Recertification by Professional Development

  • I am recertfying for the first time what are the requirements?

  • I have recertified before are the requirements different than the first time?

  • When can I start submitting my continuing education and work hours?

  • Can online courses count towards my professional development hours for recertification?

  • Can we receive educational credit for observing hand surgeries in the operating room?

  • We have started a monthly hand study group and would like to issue CEU credits. The sessions will typically be 2.5 hours with 1 hour lecture by an MD. How can we set them up to count for CEU’s with HTCC?

  • I have had two students for three months each and received 12 credits each for NBCOT. Why do I only receive 2 hours for each student for my recertification with HTCC?

  • I was just checking my approved hours online and noticed that the course is still pending. Do I need to refax the certificate?
