Exam Content Outlines
Every five years, BOC conducts a job task analysis for each of its certifications. Performed by a team of experts, our job task analyses provide insights into any improvements and changes that have occurred in the profession. This helps us update our exams to be both current and relevant.
Based on the job task analyses, BOC develops Detailed Content Outlines to formulate the candidate examinations. All questions, case simulations, and demonstrations required by BOC exams are derived directly from these content outlines.
In order to prepare for your exam effectively, study the applicable content outline:
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)
SAEs for Certified Orthotic Fitter (COF) and the Certified Mastectomy Fitter (CMF) are available at no charge to applicants and are located in the MyBOC portal. All candidates are encouraged to create a MyBOC account.
You’ll receive access to the SAEs when your application is processed. You’ll find them in the tab at the top right of your profile page.
Please Note: SAEs are not a predictor of test outcome.
