RSTCE offers several resources for people to prepare for the RESNA Assistive Technology Professional (ATP) Certification Exam. This includes an 8-hour online/on-demand review course to assist people in developing a study plan as well as a series of online/on-demand lectures that provide more detail on various assistive technology subject areas.
RESNA Exam Review Course
This 8-hour (0.8 CEU) online course is designed for Rehabilitation Technology Suppliers, Clinicians, and others preparing for the RESNA ATP Generalist Exams. The course is specifically intended to review content areas of the exam to assist participants in identifying their strengths and deficits in preparing a plan of study. Materials and resources to study for the exam will also be shared and discussed. The course will address the process of providing Assistive Technology intervention including assessment of need, development of intervention strategies, and implementation of follow-up by covering the following:
- basics of anatomy, biomechanics, and pathology
- seating and wheeled mobility
- principles of design and development

Note: This course was recorded in 2007. At the time there were 2 certifications including the Assisitve Technology Practitioner (ATP) and Assistive Technology Supplier (ATS). Since then, the certifications have been combined into the Assistive Technology Professional (ATP). The exam has also been modified; however, the content of this course is still relevant in preparing for the examination.
