You will need to provide Field print with the OT Board agency code FPOccuTheraLicBd in order to make an appointment.​ This directs the results back to the Oregon OT Licensing Board.

Enter the contact and demographic information required by the FBI and schedule a fingerprint appointment at the location of your choosing.

At the end of the process, print the Confirmation Page. Take the confirmation page with you to the fingerprint appointment, along with two forms of identification.

Please note:   If a past arrest does show up on the fingerprint FBI background check and you do not check “Yes” to the question regarding arrest history, your application automatically must go in front of the full board.  Since the board meets quarterly, this may result in waiting a longer period-of-time for your license than if you disclosed the arrest on your application.  Many applicants will confuse “dismissed” cases with “expunged”.  Dismissed cases will still show up on the background check. 


If you have not been licensed for three years or more in any state, then you must complete a Re-Entry program or retake the NBCOT examination.   For additional information, contact the Director by calling the office at 971-673-0198 or by e-mail at OTLB.Info@state.or.us.
