National Board for Certification of Orthopaedic Technologists, Inc. ​

For Our OTC®s and OT-SC™s That have been deployed to Combat Zones

The NBCOT would like to show our support by offering you an Extension on your NBCOT Certification. 

All you have to do is to submit to the NBCOT Office a copy of your Deployment order and then your Return orders.

You MUST contact the NBCOT when your return. 

The length of your Extension will be based on your time spent in deployment.

The NBCOT  thanks you for your service and wishes you Godspeed and a safe return home.


The application fee is waived for confirmed active duty military personnel, however, all other fees apply. 


Out of respect for our service men and women, the NBCOT offers test administration twelve (12) months a year.
