Online OTA Program Overview
Our online occupational therapy assistant (OTA) program applies a blended learning model, comprised of 80% online and 20% on-site curriculum. Through this blended approach, you can expect a well-rounded education that provides the knowledge, skills, and job readiness to sit for the NBCOT® Examination for OTA certification.
The length of our program depends on your academic history and the curriculum option you choose—so be sure to ask our admissions team about how to customize the curriculum to fit your needs.
How the OTA Program Works
- Online courses let you learn at times and in locations that best suit your needs, but must be completed within a set timeframe.
- 12 skills labs let you apply your knowledge in the six core OT practice areas. These occur once every 3–4 weeks in California, Minnesota, Texas, or Virginia.
Did you know?
You don’t have to live in California, Minnesota, Texas, or Virginia to participate in our OTA program. You just have to be willing to travel to our skills lab locations within one of these states 12 times during the program.
- 720 hours of supervised fieldwork help you practice your coursework in a real-world setting.
- 7-week study plan through our unique NBCOT Prep Coaching Program helps prepare you to sit for the exam and become certified after graduation.
While you can expect to put a lot of time and energy into the program, our small student-to-faculty ratio means you’ll receive personalized attention and support every step of the way.
