I would recommend Niagara College’s OTA & PTA program because the experience is so much more than just school. The professors here at Niagara College … program are extremely knowledgeable & personable. Their main goals are to see the students succeed in the program… The program is very hands on, which helps a lot with learning new skills. This program allowed me to achieve my goals because the professors were always willing to help with any misunderstandings. This OTA & PTA program really did prepare me for the real world of teamwork & helping individuals.
