Our Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA) program is designed to prepare you to work with people in a variety of settings, including hospitals, assisted-living facilities, community centers, schools, and sensory clinics.
In our OTA classes, information is presented through online learning with required readings, videos, discussion posts, and assignments. Classes meet every week through an online lecture, where students are expected to participate and engage with others.
Fieldwork is integrated throughout our program. This allows students to acquire real-world experience with actual clients. Our students have direct interaction with clinicians who practice in pediatric, rehabilitation, psychosocial, and geriatric settings.
Finally, graduates of our OTA program are prepared to take the national certification exam provided by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT).
