    Previous NBCOT Data
    2010 - 2012: For the previous 3-year calendar time frame (January - December 2010, 2011, and 2012) a total of 90 students graduated from NSCC's OTA Program. Ninety (90) NSCC graduates took the certification exam as first-time test takers during this period of time with 74/90 passing the certification exam on their first attempt (82% pass rate for first time test takers). During this same time frame, 15 graduates passed the exam as repeat test takers.

    2011 - 2014 Graduation Data
    2014: A total of 39 OTA graduates - 93% graduation rate [students completing the program] 
    2013: A total of 31 OTA Graduates - 91% graduation rate [students completing the program]
    2012: A total of 34 OTA Graduates - 97% graduation rate [students completing program]
    2011: A total of 29 OTA Graduates - 85% graduation rate [students completing the program]
    NOTE - 2014 data includes 3 graduation dates (Jan, May and November) and previous years' data includes only 2 graduation dates (Jan and May). NSCC changed January graduation date for accelerated cohort of students to November to occur immediately after program completion in October [rather than official graduation date being Januray of the following year]. In 2015, we will once again have 2 graduation dates (May and November)
