To gain feedback from practitioners, NCTRC conducts the Job Analysis on a regular basis and uses that data to evaluate exam content and the relationship between certification standards and professional practice. Although it has remained fairly consistent, there have been minor shifts in the classification of the knowledge areas as well as the deemed importance of content areas. The NCTRC Board of Directors has been responsive to industry changes and the evolution of recreation therapy practice, resulting in refinement of the certification standards over time.
