For those who have applied or are applying for the assessment of their credentials with the Council of Occupational Therapists Registration Boards (COTRB) Inc., please take note of the five-year effectivity of your eligibility from the time your Assessment letter has been issued to you. The announcement from COTRB is as follows:
At the meeting of the Overseas Qualifications Assessment Committee held on 12 October 2007 it was determined that the COTRB Assessment shall be valid for a period of five (5) years from the date of issue of the Assessment Letter.
Therefore, any persons wishing to utilise the COTRB Assessment Letter for the purposes of migration, registration, association membership etc. would need to do so within five (5) years of the assessment being completed. After this time it will be necessary for persons to once again undertake the Stage I Desk Top Audit.
