Individual Occupational Requirements

Basic Requirements

Degree: Applicants must have completed successfully (1) an occupational therapy curriculum approved by the American Occupational Therapy Association at the time the curriculum was completed, and (2) the clinical affiliation requirements prescribed by the school. The curriculum may have been a bachelor's degree program, a post-baccalaureate certificate program, or an entry-level master's degree program.


Applicants who have completed an approved curriculum at either the baccalaureate or post-baccalaureate certificate level and who subsequently completed a substantial program of clinical practice of less than 1 year, e.g., 6 months, planned to assure professional competence to practice in the occupation may be rated eligible for GS-6, rather than GS-5.
