HTCC Self-Assessment 

The Hand Therapy Certification Commission (HTCC) Self-Assessment Tool was developed to be
used by Certified Hand Therapists,occupational and physical therapists interested in learning about hand therapy as well as therapists preparing for the Hand Therapy Certification Examination. The purpose of the tool is to allow individuals to review and reflect on their knowledge of hand therapy in order to determine learning goals and activities.

The self-assessment is available as a free download in the "Mentoring" section of the HTCC
website ( or as an interactive module in the For CHTs section of the HTCC website (you must be an CHT to access the online interactive module).. The self-assessment is divided into four areas. Each area may be taken individually and a separate report will be generated based on the results of your self-assessment for each category. The four areas are:

  1. Anatomy and Physiology of the Upper Extremity
  2. Upper Extremity Diagnoses and Conditions
  3. Intervention Techniques and Tools
  4. Knowledge Areas of the Upper Extremity
