Occupational Therapy Assistant Program

March 6th, 2014 by

TJC will be starting a new program in the Fall. TJC is developing an Occupational Therapy Assistant Program. It is a 5 semester program that prepares students to sit for the national certification exam to become Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants. Once students have passed the certification exam they are eligible for licensure in the state of Texas. Projections for jobs in the field are very strong. The Bureau of Labor statistics projects a 43% growth in the field by 2022.  

TJC will be hosting an information session at the TJC campus April 8 from2:00-4:00 in Pirtle Technology Building. The Occupational Therapy Assistant Program will also be present at Apache Preview Day April 5 in Gentry Gym along with representatives from every other program on campus.
