RESNA tweaks ATP exam
ARLINGTON, Va. – RESNA will begin administering a new, updated ATP exam in July 2016 to better reflect current practice. “We’re grateful to all of the AT professionals from a wide variety of backgrounds who participated in the exam update,“ said Daniel Cochrane, chair of RESNA’s Professional Standards Board, in a release. “Hundreds of AT practitioners participated in the job validation survey alone.” While the new exam will remain the same length and scope, it will no longer include U.S.-centric funding questions. Candidates can choose whether to apply for the old exam or the new exam until March 15. Those who take the new exam between July 1 and Oct. 31, 2016, will receive a $100 discount off of the regular $500 exam fee. The last time the exam was updated was in 2009.
