    Advancement in OandP is very limited, you are either a Tech, a fitter(very rare), or a Practitioner. After you reach Prac level you have no other options of advancement besides becoming a manager, or owning your own business(extremely difficult getting started). You can not really use this education for any other type of job at this time, so if you decide OandP is not for you good luck on using it to find another job. ABC is the license people want you to have. exam fees are $1400

    bamboodoo, not sure what you mean by :”But after 2 yrs of school how can you predict job demand?” I can tell you the job demand for new comers is not good.  I’m a perfect example of that. If I could go back I would not have gone into this field, I would have became a nurse instead for several different reasons. Compare Nursing to OandP and the rate of return for Nursing beats OandP hands down on nearly everything.

    I’ve been thinking about going to school for o/p cert and i’ve often wondered what the job demand is for it,. I’d hate to go to school and not have a job when I’m done :S But after two years of school how can you predict job demand?

    To any prospective students thinking about a career in O&P, do your own research about the employment opportunities in this field before making a commitment to pursue this kind of an education. Do not take the word of NCOPE, or any educational institution about the prospects for employment in this field for that matter, find out for yourself.
