Hope everyone is well.

I am a year of college with a BA in Psychology/Sociology and with a full time job. I am very interested in getting my certification as an occupational therapy assistant (COTA), but I need to remain working full time to pay bills an adult. It is a desire of mine to become a COTA, but I just can't do it without the help of online classes and some kind of bridge program where I can do some here and there..and the clinicals part time.

Anyone else experience this? Or know of any programs like this in NC?

Thank you!

I also would like to take COTA program online and then do clinicals/part time. I called several online colleges and they do not offer it. I am an LPN at the present and have all my pre-requisites done according to my local community college but the classes are on campus and I also work full time. So if anyone finds out about a accredited college online for this course let us know.

I know this probably wont help since you are in different state but Remington College in Orlando Fl is developing a program like that. Classes are online and you go to labs one weekend a month in Orlando Fl for 8 hours. They are not yet accredited but are in step 2 of the accreditation process and hope to be fully accredited end of this year or early next year. I'm thinking of applying but am a little skeptical since they are not accredited yet, but i may just take a gamble as most schools that apply for accreditation with the AOTA usually become accredited, atleast that is what i have found in my research. I have been wanting to do OTA for a while as well but cant quit working to go to school full time so I am pretty excited to hear about this program at Remington!
