Kentucky Board of Licensure for Occupational Therapy

Board of Licensure for Occupational Therapy

The purpose of the Kentucky Board of Licensure for Occupational Therapy (KBLOT) is to administer and enforce the statutory authority and to monitor the needs of the consuming public. The board examines and licenses all eligible candidates for entry into the profession of occupational therapy. It recommends appropriate changes in the law to assure fairness and equality. The board conducts formal hearings when necessary and prosecutes by due process any violators of KRS 319A.

The board is a self-supporting agency and receives no General Fund tax appropriation.  It is funded entirely through fees assessed for licensing its professionals.


Information regarding KRS 210.366 - Training program in suicide assessment, treatment, and management can be found by clicking here.


The board is in the promulgation process for changes to many of the Kentucky Administrative Regulations (KARs) that correspond to 319A Kentucky Revised Statute (KRS) and the practice of occupational therapy within the state. 
One change that will have immediate impact for individuals licensed to practice occupational therapy under 319A KRS is new regulation wording of 201 KAR 28:200 that pertains to KRS 210.366 --Training program in suicide assessment, treatment, and management -- Administrative regulations. This KRS can be found at:
The board is accepting applications for continuing education programs related to this change and will post approved continuing education programs on the board’s webpage as they become available. 
If an individual obtains suicide training prior to Oct. 31, 2015 it shall count towards this year’s continuing competence hours, after this date, it shall count towards the 2016 renewal process, yet shall be completed and submitted to KBLOT before July 31, 2016 in order to meet the requirements of KRS 210.366. 


Note: Please be advised that the board is unable to accept electronic transcripts at this time. You are required to send an official sealed transcript by mail. The board regrets any inconvenience this may cause.
