Unique Opportunities

RT students apply learning outside of the classroom


Candidates completing this program, including a 14 week/560-hour internship, are eligible to sit for the National Council of Therapeutic Recreation (NCTRC) examination.  While certification is voluntary, many employers prefer or require it.  Additionally, some states require a license to practice.  As regulations vary by state, please check the licensing board in the state you where you intend to practice.
