BAHT usually allows student OTs and physios, therapy technicians or assistants to attend the BAHT Level I course so long as the employer sends a letter showing how this will achieve goals for the individual and for the department.  The individual is allowed to take the exam but will not gain the BAHT point.  Nurses, doctors and other health professionals are not eligible for BAHT validated courses.  Only occupational therapists and physiotherapists are eligible for BAHT Level II courses.
