The South Carolina Board of Occupational Therapy (SCBOT) has the responsibility of promoting public safety for those who receive OT services. Currently, there are no known assurances, which are available to guarantee continued competency. For this reason, the Board has mandatory continuing education requirements to promote professional advancement, which can meet individual practitioner needs and serve to facilitate public protection. The foundations for the SCBOT's responsibilities are written in Chapter 94, Article 1 and Article 4 of the S.C. Code of Regulations.
