During the 2 years preceding the application for renewal, all Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants will successfully complete 20 continuinge ducation contact hours that are approved by the board.

Mandatory
  •  Pain and Symptom Management - 1 hour
  • Human Trafficking - 1 hour (first time licensure requirement only)
Implicit Bias Training
New Applicants for licensure or registration are required to have completed 2 hours of implicit bias training within the 5 years immediately preceding issuance of the license or registration.

Renewing licensees and registrants are required to complete 1 hour of implicit bias training for each year of their license or registration cycle. However, for initial renewal after June 1, 2021, licensees will only need to have 1 hour for each year since the rule’s promulgation date of June 1, 2021.

For example, if you are scheduled to renew your license in August of 2022, you would only be required to have 1 hour of training, even if the length of your license was 3 years. Remember: The rule also specifically states that this training is in addition to any continuing education requirements required for renewal.

Subsequent renewals will require 1 hour of implicit bias training for each year of the license or registration cycle. 

Training that was taken prior the promulgation of the rule (June 1, 2021) and within the license cycle that is up for renewal, qualifies toward the requirement for renewals. However, the rule allows new applicants for licensure or registration to complete the training within the 5 years immediately preceding issuance of the license or registration. 

All professions licensed or registered under the Michigan Public Health Code, except for Veterinary Medicine, are required to take Implicit Bias Training.
