AUTHORISED & OFFICIAL
Occupational activities are some of the most powerful tools in rehabilitation and for compensating for occupational dysfunction. For many years, occupational therapy has been used as a method of recuperating and improving both cognitive and physical skills. Its ultimate goal is to help individuals regain the greatest degree of independence possible when carrying out activities in daily life, as well as to help them stay healthy by taking their surroundings and interests into account.
DDF are pleased to present Foundations of Occupational Therapy, designed for anyone, whether a health professional or not, who would like to start out in the field by acquiring the fundamental concepts of occupational therapy, like methods of analysing activities and the key tools and techniques of the practice.
5 weeks (120 hours) from the 26th July 2018 – 30th August 2018.
100% online through our e-learning platform which you can access 24/7. There is no fixed learning rhythm and there are no set dates for the exams so you are free to work on the course and take the exams at your own pace. The only requirement is that you finish the course and pass the exams by the 30th of August.
Everything you will need to complete the course is available on the online platform. The course has 3 modules and the material is available in PDF format to download, study and print if you wish. Our material is dynamic and varied and includes audiovisual multimedia resources, links to complementary information, interesting facts, practical examples and research tools. You will have access to an online forum with a tutoring team at your disposal for any queries.
There is an exam at the end of each module (between 10 and 20 questions each) and you are given three attempts to pass. There is also a final exam (between 30 and 40 questions) which covers topics from the entire course and must be passed on the first attempt. All exam questions are multiple choice, true/false or matching.
Once you have successfully passed all the exams, your certificate will be sent automatically to the email address you used for registration within 10 working days of the official end date of the course.
Our certificates are officially backed by the EADL (European Association for Distance Learning) and are assured under the ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System. This certificate will be complete with an electronic signature and stamp as well as a unique secure verification code. Any person or company can verify the validity of the certificate using this code. We are also included in the Transparency Register of the European Union.
