Inactive Status is available to therapists who are due to recertify, but who do not have enough hours to meet the requirements to recertify by professional development. It gives you additional time to meet the recertification requirements without having to take the examination. Inactive status can be selected for one year at a time up to five years maximum.
- You must be a current CHT (Active or Inactive) in good standing.
- You must have 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.
- You can apply for Inactive Status only at the time you are due to recertify, not during your recertification cycle.
Work and Professional Development Requirements
No work or professional development hours are required if you plan to become Inactive.
