Do I need any special training to become a fieldwork educator?

Fieldwork education is an important professional responsibility of each professional. There is an informative website offered by AOTA for fieldwork educators. The college and university academic fieldwork coordinators will be more than happy to assist you in preparing for hosting fieldwork students. Contact your area occupational therapy programs. You can also attend the AOTA Fieldwork Educators Certificate Program (FWECP) which will prepare you for being a field work educator. Click here for more information.
