NBCOT has created a new online tool for OTRs and COTAs to help keep track of their Professional Development Units.

NBCOT’s new online Professional Development Log Portal has been created to help you log and track the 36 Professional Development Units (PDU) needed to maintain current certification status with NBCOT as an Occupational Therapist Registered (OTR) or Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant (COTA). Rather than maintaining a hard copy log of your professional development, this new online tool allows you to enter and maintain an electronic log which you can access 24 hours a day.

Start tracking your professional development activities using the new tool by clicking here.
