ATP Renewal Guidelines During the PHE
on November 12, 2021
COVID-19 has brought about several challenges to our businesses, including meeting standard guidelines for ATP renewal or recertification.
In light of the public health emergency (PHE), RESNA’s Professional Standards Board (PSB) understands that, for some individuals, the required work experience requirement set forth may not have been feasible, and thus we have decided to review these situations on a case-by-case basis. We understand these past two years have had unprecedented challenges and we want to support our assistive technology community as best as possible. More information can be found at the link below.
Re-Certification during the PHE
The RESNA PSB will make individual considerations and exceptions to the work experience requirement for ATPs that are scheduled to be recertified between September 1, 2021 – April 1, 2022 on a case-by-case basis. To apply for the exception, RESNA requires an application along with supporting information. If you have any questions regarding this update, feel free to contact me or any of the members of the RESNA PSB.
