Who We Are

Since launching in June of 2013, our web course and one-on-one personal tutoring via Skype/Zoom/phone has helped over 2000 students pass the occupational therapy test. In addition to our comprehensive online course that provides faculty and program directors the necessary tools to track and manage your students, Pass the OT prides itself on our passionate and dedicated tutors, each being instrumental in helping our students pass the NBCOT® exam through their one-on-one sessions.

Our program is set up holistically, to keep you organized, build your confidence, and assist you with studying smarter and being more prepared for the actual NBCOT® exam. It is also a direct result of the students who were fed up with the existing study preps out there that just didn’t work. Because we have seen so many students make common mistakes like being a generalist instead of specialist, not studying according to their learning style, trying to memorize answers, and taking practice exams again and again without fully understanding the material, we have built our program in stark contrast to our competitors’ programs which often lack structure, are overwhelming, lack enough examples of interventions, solely provide questions, and don’t pay attention to your individual needs. We look forward to helping make this the last time you take the NBCOT® exam.
