Do you need an OT license verified? There is NO charge in Oregon for license verifications.
To verify a license for an OT or OT Assistant online go back to the home page (click on top line for Occupational Therapy Licensing Board and see in the middle of the page where you can verify a license with a name, license number, or city of practice.
The license verifications does
constitute a "primary issuing source" for purposes of license verification. You can click on the Last name, First name, License Number, or City, or scroll down to the second box for specialty areas.
If you need a written verification form sent to another state, it is best to request the verification of licensure by e-mail. Send the verification request to Felicia.M.Holgate@state.or.us giving the full address where the verification needs to go.
If you cannot send the request by e-mail then you can call 971-673-0198, or fax 971-673-0226 or by writing to the Board office.
We try to send verifications out within a few days. The Board verifies the license number, whether it is current, the date of initial licensure, and whether the board has disciplined the licensee. We will try
to notify you by e-mail when the verification is sent.
Note: Oregon law requires all information obtained during a complaint be kept confidential, including the fact that there is an on-going investigation (except in rare instance where there is a showing by clear and convincing evidence that disclosure is in the public’s interest).
However, once the investigation is complete and the Board, by a majority vote, has taken disciplinary action, a copy of the action is available on request. These requests generally come from other state licensing boards, insurance carriers, and potential employers. See more information on the Complaints/Investigation tab.
