recertification by exam general requirements

CHTs seeking Recertification take the same examination administered to candidates taking the examination for initial certification. The Hand Therapy Certification Examination is a four-hour computer-delivered test consisting of 200 multiple-choice items.

A CHT can recertify by examination anytime they are due to recertify. It is the only option to renew your credential if it has lapsed.

General Requirements

  1. Be a current CHT (Active or Inactive) in good standing (Your certification may have lapsed, but it may not have been revoked).
  2. Hold a current professional credential to practice as an OT or PT. Depending on your profession and where you practice, a professional credential may include a license, certificate, or registration. In all cases, it is the credential that you need to legally practice in that location. This credential must be active and you must be in good standing with the agency that issued it.
  3. No work or professional development hours are required if you plan to recertify by taking the examination.

Work and Professional Development Requirements

No work or professional development hours are required if you plan to become Inactive.
