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 –”

GRADUATE TESTIMONIALS

  • The decision I made to come to Remington College was one of the best decisions I made.

    Gregory A.
  • What I would want people to know about Remington College is that it's a great school. The teachers are very knowledgeable, and they make sure you succeeded in school and your classes, and they will help you get what you need to further your education.

    Alice G.
  • The instructors that I had were all very knowledgeable in their field. They had quite extensive credentials, and a lot of them were guys who were working in the field, or have recently retired from it, and wanted to instruct other people. All of them were very helpful and went out of their way to help you.

    Micahel S.
  • I would definitely recommend Remington College…they give you real skills for the real world.

    Charles H.
  • When I saw the Dental Hygeine lab for the first time I noticed that it was very clean very pristine very organized. And knew that I would enjoy being in that environment every day so it sold me.

    Elisha S.
  • The program at Remington college I thought was very good.  A lot of the things that we've learned here at the college I do at my day to day job. Everything from drawing blood to autoclaving Instruments to preparing sterile trays for physician all of that we use in the field so I thought think the program is put to put together very well.

    Keyarrow W.
  • What I really liked about my instructors were as they had already spent time in the field so they already knew first hand what was happening out there and they were all in different fields so depending on what you wanted to do. This far as outpationt or rehab they had that experience so they could answer any questions you had.

    Caterina B.
  • The technical part of the curriculum was up-to-date with the industry standards.

    Noel B.
  • I think the part I enjoyed the most was a lot of the one-on-one interaction with the smaller class sizes. It was really great. Everything felt more personal, especially with the instructors and the staff around here. They would do pretty much anything they could to just help you out any way that they can.

    Daniel B.
  • The instructors helped me prepare for the exams by giving us the tools needed and the knowledge you need to be out there in the field not just pass a paper test. I think that made a big difference.
