Please join us for Online Office Hours on Tuesdays 7:00 - 8:00 pm EDT.

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.

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 that your camera and microphone are activated when you enter the office hours.  That will help to ensure that the instructor will be able to address your questions efficiently and effectively.

Join our 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 COTA® exam and now as part of our effort to help amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

Moderated every week by an experienced TherapyEd instructor, our Online Office Hours give students a way to extend their studying and get extra help, especially in these difficult times. Every Tuesday, log-in, ask questions and get personalized help while also learning from other students' questions.

Our instructors will begin office hours with 15 minutes of focused content review of important exam content areas and then answer questions related to that topic, any other topic or on test taking strategies. The content areas covered in coming weeks will be:
