Information Update Instructions

 

You are now able to update certain profile information online.  Through the "Login to Manage My Personal Profile" button below,  You will be able to update most all of your information online, as well as your supervision information.  Your continuing competence information can be updated throughout the year by using the "Login to Manage My CCA" button located further down the page.


To access your information you will need:

  1. your North Carolina OT or OTA license number
  2. the last four digits of your social security number

It is also important that you keep your email address information current and add the Board to your safe senders list. The Board will be sending email reminders for licensure renewal and updates.  If you have never logged on to the online system before, please read all of the instructions below before logging on for the first time.

The first time you log-in you will use your license number as your log-in and the last four (4) digits of your social security number for your password. The next screen will prompt you to change your password. Make a note of your new password as it will be required to log-in and track your continuing competence activity throughout the year and for your license renewal. You will use the same log-in and password any time you access your information on this website. If you have already completed an online renewal, you will use the same password you created at that time to update your information.

 

Login to Manage My Personal Profile

 

The first page of your profile contains your personal and employment information from the Board’s files. Please review and correct the information as necessary so that Board records are current and complete. Your mailing address provides the address where you would like mail correspondence from the Board to be sent. Your practice address is the location of the facility where you provide therapy in North Carolina. Please complete all sections. Your North Carolina address is where you reside while employed in NC.

Page 2 of your profile is the information that the Board collects for the Cecil G. Sheps Center for Health Services Research. In 2006 the Board agreed to participate with the Sheps Center in collecting data for their annual publication on North Carolina healthcare professions. Each year the Center publishes a book with data from approximately 20 healthcare professions. This data is used by the legislature, policy makers, educators, the press and others in identifying emerging health workforce issues. You may get more information on this program at http://www.shepscenter.unc.edu/.

Except for name changes, you may comply with the written and signing requirements of Rules .0401 and .0901 by updating your personal profile online.  “Name change requests” still are required to be submitted to the Board office by mail along with a photocopy of proof of your name change, i.e.: marriage license, divorce papers, or court documents relating to legal change of birth name. (A copy of your driver license or social security card is not acceptable.)

After you update your information online, do not mail copies of the information update forms to the Board office.  If you wish to keep a copy of the changes you make online, you can download and fill in the forms.

You are now able to track your continuing competence activity (CCA) online. 

To access your information you will need:

  1. Your four digit North Carolina OT or OTA license number
  2. The last four digits of your social security number

The first time you log-in you will use the last four (4) digits of your social security number for your password. The next screen will prompt you to change your password. Make a note of your new password as it will be required to update your personal, employment and supervision information as well as your CCA throughout the year and for your license renewal beginning in 2012.  If you have never logged on to the online system before, please read all of the instructions below before logging on for the first time.

 

Login to Manage My CCA

 

Between July 1st and March 30th of each renewal period your will be able to enter your CCA by going to “Manage my CCA”. Click on the “Add New CCA” button, chose the category of your CCA as defined in Rule .0805, enter the date, description and CCA points earned. Click on “Add CCA” to save. Continue adding your CCA until you have added all applicable activities. You will be allowed to enter more CCA points than the maximum allowed for renewal in each category but only the maximum allowable point total will be considered to reach the total number of points required for your renewal. Between April 1st and June 30th you will enter CCA information when you complete your renewal online.

Please note that your Ethics activity is required to be entered in the category “Ethics” no matter which type of qualified CCA it is. This will allow the computer to recognize it as your ethics requirement.

If the CCA lasted more than one day, enter the date the activity was completed. If the date range spans two (2) renewal periods, the CCA is applied to the 2nd period.

When you renew your license online, the CCA you have entered throughout the year will automatically appear in the correct section of your renewal application. At the end of the renewal period your CCA will be saved and you will be able to access and print out your previous year’s CCA.
