Law/Ethics Exam

All applicants must take and pass the Oregon Ethics/Law exam before they can receive their new license.  

Already licensed Oregon OT and OTA's can take the exam for 1 free CEU.  Once you have completed the exam, send an email to the board to let us know that you have submitted it for CE.

If returning applicants have been unlicensed in Oregon for over two years, they are required to re-take the Law/Ethics exam.

The Director will receive the results directly by email. If you do not pass it the first time, you will be able to re-take it again the next day.

There is a helpful study guide below that you can refer to while you take the exam.  Links to AOTA Supervision Guidelines and ORS OT Statutes and OT Administrative Rules are also available.  The exam is “open book".  Hint:  watch for the bolded items.

Please note:  In completing the Law/Ethics exam you will be asked to enter your email address.  Please make sure you use the one on file with the board, or the one that was or will be entered into the application.  This is how we match your results with your board record.
