Occupational therapy is a health care field in which the demand for personnel continues to increase. There are not enough qualified personnel to fill the demand. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (bls.gov) the Job Outlook is 40% (much faster than average job growth 2014-2024). Occupational therapy assistants work in hospitals, clinics, schools, nursing facilities, group homes, home health agencies and rehabilitation centers.
Formal articulation agreements with other colleges and universities indicate how Sinclair programs and courses will transfer to other institutions.
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 examination, the individual will be a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant (COTA) and be eligible for licensure in the state of Ohio. A felony conviction may affect a graduate's ability to sit for the NBCOT certification examination or attain state licensure.
