If you’re keen to help those affected by illness, injury, accident or ageing to resume everyday activities, then this is the course for you. In this online occupational therapy course, you’ll learn to interpret and apply medical terminology, assist with client movement and rehabilitation, respond to challenging behaviour, undertake case management, and implement infection control policies.
You’ll also develop key management and communication skills to give you a professional edge in the workplace. Students may require a current First Aid Certificate to commence placement at some workplaces.
