P-RDT Credential

At this time credentialing applications are disabled as forms and information are being updated. A communication will go out providing the new application information. If you have already started an application for the August cycle, you will be contacted by the NADTA office. We appreciate your patience during this transition.

 We have a brand-new interim credential, the Provisional Registered Drama Therapist (P-RDT), which will be available to apply for in the 2020 cycle. This credential is optional and may be applied for after the educational requirements for the RDT have been completed. It will be helpful to show employers who need verification of your drama therapy education and that you are working toward your credential. It will also set us up for success in the fight for state licensure and support individuals in states where drama therapy is less known.

The interim credential application is in two parts. Part-A of the application should be completed for the interim credentialing after the educational requirements have been completed. You will then fill out part B when you have completed your experience hours. If you are applying for full RDT credentialing fill out the traditional application.
