Thursday, July 3, 2014

OWINGS MILLS, Md. – The Board of Certification/Accreditation (BOC) and its testing vendor recently convened subject matter experts to collaborate on a BOC Pedorthist Job Task Analysis, according to a release. The group will send a survey in July to as many as 5,000 pedorthists and other healthcare professionals to help update the exam’s content outline. “It was a very productive meeting, and I am pleased with the results of our collective efforts,” said Wendy Miller, BOC’s chief credentialing officer. “We sequenced the pedorthist task list from prescription to final fitting and evaluated each task to ensure our pedorthist certification candidates continue to be assessed on appropriate competencies.” Job task analyses are typically conducted every five to seven years, according to the release.
