Make a difference on a daily basis as an occupational therapy assistant.

Healthcare is one of today’s fastest-growing industries, but careers in occupational therapy are in particularly high demand. With an associate’s degree in occupational therapy, you’ll be able to start a highly rewarding career as an occupational therapy assistant and start earning a great salary, all without having to spend four years in school.

Our occupational therapy assistant program combines class work and hands-on clinical experience to help you build the skills and techniques you’ll need to be able to work with patients who are affected by disabilities or recovering from injuries. With your help, your patients will be able to learn how to learn or regain the skills they need to live independently.

After you graduate, you’ll be able to sit for the national certification exam administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT).
