AMPS Certification

To become certified in the AMPS:

AMPS Course Objectives

The AMPS course can be completed by attending a 5-day in-person course or by enrolling in the online AMPS course. During either course you earn 45 contact hours for continuing education.

  1. Administer, score, and interpret the AMPS in a valid and reliable manner
  2. Use the AMPS to promote occupation-centered and client-centered practice
  3. Integrate the AMPS into your occupational therapy practice
  4. Use AMPS results to plan occupational therapy interventions
  5. Use AMPS measures as evidence proving the effectiveness of interventions

The Rater Calibration Process

Once you have completed an in-person or online AMPS course, the next step is to complete the rater calibration process. The rater calibration process ensures that your AMPS results are valid and reliable. This unique process is included at no extra cost in all AMPS certification courses.
During the rater calibration process, you will:
  1. Administer the AMPS to 10 people
  2. Submit your data to CIOTS for analysis
  3. Receive detailed feedback based on your submitted data
Once your scoring is shown to be valid, you will receive an individualized code that unlocks powerful reports and your clients’ AMPS measures based on your unique scoring severity.
