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 2,000 students pass the occupational therapy test (NBCOT® exam). Our comprehensive online course consists of over 2000 questions,18 hours of audio recordings, assessment quizzes, videos, and easy to understand charts. Pass the OT prides itself on our passionate and dedicated tutors, who are instrumental in helping our students pass the NBCOT® exam through their one-on-one sessions.

Our program is set up holistically, to help keep you organized, build your confidence, and assist you with studying smarter so that you are more prepared for the actual NBCOT® exam. Our program was conceived as the direct result of the many students who were fed up with the existing study preps out there, which just didn’t work for them. As we have seen so many students make common mistakes such as: 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.
