Exam Content Outlines

Every five years, BOC conducts a job task analysis for each of its certifications. Performed by a team of expert practitioners, our job task analysis provides insight into any improvements and changes that have occurred in the profession. It also ensures that our exams are both current and relevant.

Based on the job task analysis, BOC develops an outline of the schedule of tasks involved in each program. The Detailed Content Outline of each certification program is then used to formulate the candidate examinations. All questions, case simulations, and demonstrations required by BOC exams are derived directly from the content outlines of each practice.

In order to prepare for your exam effectively, study the content outline for which you are a candidate:

Orthotic Fitter Detailed Content Outline and Outline Instructions

Mastectomy Fitter Detailed Content Outline and Outline Instructions

DME Specialist Detailed Content Outline and Outline Instructions

Self-Assessment Examinations (SAE)

PLEASE NOTE: The self-assessment exams will not be available for purchase after December 31, 2020.

For a sample of the types of questions posed in the orthotic fitter and mastectomy fitter exams, use the Self-Assessment Examination (SAE), which are web tests developed by experts in the field to help you prepare for certification. Answers are confidential and your grade is provided instantly. After you receive the results of your SAE, you can access a variety of reports that will help you understand your grade and discover your strengths and weaknesses.
