Who We Are

Since launching in June of 2013, our study course and one-on-one personal tutoring for the NBCOT® Exam has helped over 2,300 students pass the occupational therapy test (NBCOT® exam). Because many of these students had exhausted all the other preparation courses before passing with our program we have built a program to circumvent the mistakes students often make when they don’t pass. Some of these mistakes include students having blind spots in their understanding of the material, being overwhelmed by too much material, disorganized in their studying, and wasting valuable study time taking cumulative exams without being able to review their wrong answers and fully understanding why they got those answers wrong.
