Registered Orthopedic Technologist (“ROT”) Certification!

The American Society of Orthopedic Professionals is now awarding the professional title, Registered Orthopedic Technologist, R.O.T., after completion of our new online examination.

This exam is focused on office-based orthopedic procedures. If you are doing casting & bracing, you should consider becoming a Registered Orthopedic Technologist. The exam is free to all ASOP members and is given online without loss of work time or travel expenses.

Upon joining ASOP, you will have one year to complete the exam. ASOP will provide you with a free, two-hundred page, orthopedic study guide.

Having an organization where all members have passed a professional examination is an ASOP goal. This allows us to speak with a louder voice as we talk to state legislative representatives about licensure for Orthopedic Technologists. Without state licensure Orthopedic Technologists cannot advance within the ranks of allied medical professions. Your joining ASOP and becoming a Registered Orthopedic Technologist will help ensure your future career goals.

Once you become a member, you MUST REQUEST A SPECIAL ROT EXAM LINK in order to take the exam.

    I JOINED IN SEPTEMBER 2008, TOOK THE EXAM IMMEDIATLY JUST TO SEE WHERE MY BASE LINE OF KNOWLEDGE WAS IN REGARDS TO THE ROT TEST, IT WAS VERY REFRESHING TO SEE MY RESULTS AND THEN TOOK IT UPON MYSELF TO CRAM FOR 30 DAY’S AND RETOOK THE EXAM AND PASSED. HIGHLY RECOMMEND ANYONE TO TAKE THE TEST RIGHT OUT OF THE STARTING GATE. AS A BASE LINE DON’T STUDY, JUST GO FOR IT!!! NOTHING WRONG WITH BEING HONEST WITH YOURSELF AND SEE WHERE YOU ACTUALLY STAND IN A PROFESSIONAL STAND POINT . THEY ASOP PROVIDES THE STUDY MATERIAL SO YOU ARE GAURRANTED TO PASS.

    HAVE HAD MORE OFFER’S OF EMPLOYMENT FROM AROUND THE WORLD THAN I EVER THOUGHT POSSIBLE. AND ITS GAINING RECOGNITION THROUGHOUT THE ORTHOPEDIC INDUSTRY AS WELL.

    JUST DO IT!!

    I just joined ASOP and just received my materials. I am excited that the exam to become a Registered Ortho Tech is being offered but even more happier that it is online. I also enjoy the articles that they present for continued education. I am looking forward to what this organization has to offer.

    I was given the opportunity to attend a private Casting workshop at my place of empolyment. The workshop was very informative and it gave me my free membership to ASOP and also the reading/studying materials needed to take the ROT exam.

    I am a COTA/L and have been for approx. 10 years, although I work with an Orthopedic Surgeon as his clinic support, which is a mix of my offical license and on the job training of “nursing” type duties. I wanted to attempt the ROT online exam for my first time without reviewing the material, just to see where I stand, and how much I remember from college. The exam took me a total of 4 hours, spreading it out between two work days. At the end of the exam I was happy to receive a passing score, and I am now a COTA/L, ROT.

    The exam was difficult, especially if you have never studied or had the experience to work within a healthcare facility. I was lucky enough to have retained some of my college knowledge and I feel that working for an Orthopedic Surgeon, for the past 7 years, was also very helpful. My advice for most people, read/study the material and understand it prior to sitting for this long exam.

    I just completed my exam last night and I passed. It is challenging so study first but it is well worth the time invested. I am proud to say I am officially a Registered Orthopaedic Technician!! Thanks ASOP!

    Hi Charles Barocas, I PASSED!! Thanks for everything…I’m in State of Texas and It’s inadequate to describe in words how relieved I am and am still in the processing of embracing the relief and the thankfulness of it all. The many weeks of intense preparation, including finding the strength and determination to take the exam, have all served a purpose for me….I am filled with gratitude and the immense joy to do the work that I so deeply love. Above all, I treasure all that I’ve learned. In deep appreciation for the ASOP study materials and workshop I attended in San Antonio Texas. I only used your material and PASSED the first time. I purchased and bought other companies materials and found them to be extremely inferior to yours and did not even use them. So many of the questions could have been accurately answered by two of the four choices but again, your strong suggestion to keep it very, very fundamental was essential. Thank you! I am just thrilled!! However it is one of the most difficult and longest exams I’ve taken. Thanks ASOP!
