  • You must have a desire to learn how to become an Occupational Therapist to take this course.

Occupational Therapy is constantly ranked as one of the top jobs in America because of it provides a sense of fulfillment, good pay, and a great lifestyle.

The only negative to OT is that it's getting super hard to become one! More and more applicants are applying each year and there is typically only room for about 30 students per school. Odds are less than 1/6 for most people who apply.

This course is designed to drastically increase your odds of getting into OT school. The course was created by someone who got accepted into OT school in March of 2017, so you'll walk away with the latest information, tips, and strategies to setting yourself apart from the competition. 

If you've thought about going to OT school, not taking this course would be like only applying to one OT school and hoping you get in. You might get in - but why not increase your chances as much as possible?? If you're the type of person who wants to maximize your chances of success of getting admitted to OT school, this is the course for you!

The cost of not getting into school can be as much as thousands of dollars. Why is that? 

Well here's some of the costs you'll have to pay just to apply:

*Application costs 
*Out-of-state interviews
*Tuition for pre-requisites
*Time it takes to complete pre-requisites (1-2 years)
*Lodging for OT interviews
*Getting official transcripts

Do yourself a favor and get some great advice from someone who just went through the entire process of applying, interviewing, and getting accepted to different schools. The things you learn may just make the difference of you getting into OT school or not. 

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for students who want to decide if Occupational Therapy could be the right career path for them. Anyone considering Occupational Therapy as a career will benefit from taking this course.
  • This course is also for career-changers who have identified Occupational Therapy as their next career move.

Online Teacher, Occupational Therapist Student, Entrepreneur

Andy is a guy anyone would love learning from. He was an all-star student throughout high school and college. After school, he did business-to-business sales for about three years (selling products to other businesses like software solutions). 

Andy loved the skills he acquired in business,but he felt something was missing from his career and life.  He hated sitting in front of a computer all day, so he decided to change his life by switching his career path to that of an Occupational Therapist. He will be a student at an OT school starting summer of 2017. He received interviews at all the schools he applied to (and landed a few offers), so he's eager to share what he's learned from going through the whole process.

In his spare time, Andy loves hanging out with is wife and baby boy and coming up with new business ideas. Andy started a business transferring his Dad's old LP records onto CD's for folks in his town during high school. In college, Andy and his Dad created a product for people who have a hard time dealing with sheet music when playing the piano. 

Now, Andy enjoys creating digital courses that improve people's lives. He focuses on career development and entrepreneurship, but who knows where the future will lead him!
