Neonatal Therapy Certification® Applicant Portal

To begin the application process for certification, you need to create an account and complete the application process through our partner, Prolydian.


The application deadline is November 15, 2021. The next enrollment period will open on March 15, 2022, with a deadline of May 15, 2022.


Fees associated with becoming a Certified Neonatal Therapist include a $250 application fee and a $400 examination fee. The $250 application fee will be due at the end of the application process in order to submit your data to the NTCB for review.  You have until November 15th to complete your application documentation and pay the application fee. For those who do not complete the process prior to these deadlines,  data will be purged. Upon notification of your eligibility for certification, you will have six (6) months to pay the examination fee of $400 and take your exam.


If you are applying with another therapist, you will both receive $50 off of the exam fee.
You must complete the application purchase within four (4) days of each other in order to qualify for the discount.
This incentive may not be combined with any other incentive or coupon.


Once all required information has been entered into each section of the portal, you will submit your completed applicant portfolio and application fee to the NTCB for review. Upon submission, you will receive an email detailing next steps and how to access study materials.
