I'm making this rating on behalf of the Hearing Instrument Science Program at OTC. I loved OTC as a school, great place to get an education. However, DO NOT join the HIS program! Complete waste of time and money. The instructors were cliquey and rude. You graduate completely underprepared for the workforce. I work in the field and have yet to pass my licensing exam that they assured had a 99% pass rate when I was signing up for the program (I've talked to alumni who also haven't passed after at least 3x). I've taken it 2x and have paid over $500 so far. Pretty ridiculous, I'm trying to pass an exam for something I'm already doing. They also forgot to mention that there are NO jobs in Springfield. You have to relocate. The instructors gave no focus on the matter of sales techniques. The entire field revolves around sales with most clinics being commission only. It's a racquet. I have coworkers who got licensed on the 1st try through the IHS Learning Course (only $900 and takes weeks).

I've only had one semester here, so I can't really say much. However, I deeply enjoyed my classes and my professors! My professors were extremely helpful, and clearly cared about my education. Anytime I had any questions, they always answered them as best as they could. The campus location is beautiful and easy to locate. Parking can be a little bit of a hassle, but all things considered it isn't too bad. My biggest complaint is it's a little hard to find classes and rooms in the buildings. It pretty easy to get lost in the various buildings, even after I had been in class a couple of times. I'm also unsure about the location of the counseling services. Even after being given a tour of one of the buildings, I still can't find things. Other than that it's a great school!
I have loved every aspect of OTC. OTC has a large, easily accessible campus, large commons areas for relaxation and quite, and some of the most helpful resources out there. I have yet to meet an ill mannered professor, or any other decidedly unhelpful person. Everyone is happy to help make your college experience the best possible! With numerous tutoring facilities, and small classes, OTC is a great place to take challenging classes, also their advisers are great at helping you plan a successful academic path. In short I believe OTC is the place to be!
