ACCREDITED LEARNING INSTITUTION

The occupational therapy assistant program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), located at 4720 Montgomery Lane, Suite 200, Bethesda, MD 20814-3449. ACOTE’s telephone number c/o AOTA is (301) 652-AOTA and its Web address is www.acoteonline.org. Graduates of the program will be eligible to sit for the national certification examination for the occupational therapy assistant administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT). After successful completion of this exam, the individual will be a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant (COTA). In addition, most states require licensure in order to practice; however, state licenses are usually based on the results of the NBCOT Certification Examination. Note that a felony conviction may affect a graduate’s ability to sit for the NBCOT certification examination or attain state licensure. Further, completion of Remington College’s occupational therapy assistant program does not guarantee that a graduate will pass the NBCOT exam or be able to obtain state licensure. Prior to enrolling, individuals interested in this program are responsible for researching and understanding all examination, registration and/or licensure requirements for a career as an occupational therapist assistant for each state in which they may seek licensure.

” I welcome you to consider the Occupational Therapy Assistant program at Remington College. Students come from all over the country (e.g., Illinois, Tennessee, South Carolina) as well as locally to take part in the first hybrid program. This innovative program has demonstrated excellence in preparing its graduates to be excellent health care professionals –”

    Constance B.
  • My experience at Remington College was overall really good. From admissions, to the classroom, to the lab, you learned everything. Everyone helped you along the way. If you had questions, everyone wanted to help.

    Tori M.
  • Majority of everything that I see in the real world in my job that I do every day are things that I've dealt with here in Remington College. We got a lot of hands on experience with permit writing we also had experience with DCS run of modules dealing with the pressures of the differential pressures...so we got a lot of hands on training and what we were going to be dealing with.

    Sterling D.
  • The training that we received at Remington College was very intense for the residential and commercial side as well. We had a very good teachers. Very good practices. Worked out perfectly for me

    Cazell B.
  • I chose Remington College because when I came to speak with the advisor she was very helpful and enthusiastic in helping me decide that I wanted to actually start medical assisting and not be afraid in taking that first step.

    Erin S.
  • The professors were available before and after our class time, so if you're having difficulty with a specific concept or subject...they would meet with you one-on-one.

    Caterina B.
  • What I enjoyed the most about being a student here was being able to talk with our instructors. The classrooms are small. There's just a few of us there, so if you finish your work, you can actually pick your instructor's brain and ask questions about working in that field or more in-depth questions about the subject that you're studying at that time.

    Jody F.
  • The instructors here were great. They taught us well, and they were easy to talk to, and it was just a friendly environment.
