Scam alert for licensees! - Friday, September 3, 2021

OTPTAT Board license holders should be aware that a scam continues to target licensees. Scammers are calling medical professionals spoofing the OTPTAT Board's main line and claiming to be investigators for the OTPTAT Board or other law enforcement agencies. The scam claims that the target's license to practice has been revoked due to allegations of drug trafficking. The scam will then request money to be wired to a foreign bank account.

Please note that an investigative agent from the Board will never ask for a payment over the phone. Any disciplinary action will include an official notice of hearing by either certified mail or personal service. The Board will never contact you over the telephone to tell you that your license has been revoked.

If you are contacted by a scammer, you may verify that it is a scam by hanging up and calling the Board's main line and asking for the enforcement unit to file a complaint. Also, please report the incident to your local law enforcement and the Ohio Attorney General's Office by filing a complaint online at or by calling 800-282-0515.


Wall license display in eLicense Ohio - Wednesday, September 25, 2019

A new feature has been enabled in the eLicense Ohio system to allow license holders to log into the system and pull up a copy of your wall license. To do so, please log into the eLicense Ohio website ( and click the “options” tab on your license. One of the menu options will be “download wall certificate.” This will bring up a copy of your wall certificate and allow you to print it or save it to your phone or other electronic device. Step-by-step instructions are available for your assistance.

As a result of this new feature, the Ohio Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Athletic Trainers Board recently made a change to Ohio Administrative Code for the occupational therapy, physical therapy, and athletic trainer sections. This change allows a license holder to display their wall certificate on an electronic device as a way of meeting the requirement for license display. The Board recognizes that we live in an increasingly mobile world and use of this feature enhances the ability to display your license at the request of anyone who may wish to see proof of licensure. 

Replacement wall certificates will still be available by request for those who wish to continue to use a hard copy for a fee of $10. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at
