Has your NBCOT® exam been delayed? Do you want to proactively use your ‘down’ time?  Do you want to refresh your content knowledge as you prepare for your fieldwork or capstone experience?


Please join us for LIVE Online Office Hours on Tuesdays from 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. 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. 

All Online Office Hours are relevant to both OT and OTA students and are conducted by an experienced TherapyEd instructor who is a content expert in the evening’s specific topic.

All you need to start is to sign in with your email address. This will take you to the live Online Office Hours where you can focus on your exam preparation questions with our experienced instructors. Be sure your camera and microphone are activated when you enter the office hours to help the instructor address your questions efficiently and effectively.

Online Office Hours

There is no charge for our Online Office Hours--it comes as a benefit of taking the TherapyEd preparation course for the NBCOT®'s exams and as part of our effort to help students amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Online office hours are recorded so students unable to attend can review it later. Please mute your mic and turn off your camera if you do not want to be recorded. Recordings of past Online Office Hours will be available on TherapyEd's YouTube channel 2 days after the session, and will remain available for one month.
