OT Online Office Hours
Please join us for LIVE Online Office Hours on Tuesdays 7:00 – 8:00 pm ET.
For over 25 years TherapyEd has been the leader in helping prepare students for their OT and OTA Certification exams. We believe that expertise, experience, ethics, and giving back to the Occupational Therapy community matters. As part of our efforts to help every student succeed on the NBCOT® exams, we offer FREE Online Office Hours that are open to all NBCOT® exam candidates. These sessions are designed to help students, including those whose fieldwork and exam plans were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, effectively prepare for fieldwork and the certification exam.
These FREE Online Office Hours include targeted content review which highlights foundational knowledge (e.g., TOP 5 “Must Know” points) in a specific area of practice according to the most current NBCOT® exam outlines for the OTR® and COTA® exams. An opened-ended Q & A session follows this review to give participants the opportunity to ask questions regarding effective exam preparation, test taking strategies, and the certification exam.
