As per certification best practices, RESNA conducts a Job Task Analysis every five years in partnership with our testing vendor. The JTA utilizes a multi-method approach incorporating numerous subject-matter experts (SMEs), an analysis of trends in the assistive technology (AT) profession, and a large-scale, statistically significant survey of the AT community.
The purpose of the JTA is to identify and validate the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to practice in assistive technology. The results of the JTA form the basis of the requirements for the ATP certification – including pre-requisite requirements, the examination, and recertification – as well as serving as the basis for any recommended changes to those requirements.
Effective January 1, 2023, the Assistive Technology Professional (ATP) Examinations will based upon the 2022 Exam Content Outline.
