What are the procedures to be an occupational therapist assistant?
When i look up the average salary of occupational therapy assistants online, it says you can earn up to 110,000/ yr. Does that apply to people with associates degree? or do i have to have a special certification? if yes, how long does that take?

$110,000 - Dollars ?? That doesn't seem close to accurate. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics tracks salaries in various occupations. I put the web address below. OC assistants usually have AA degrees. OC aides usually have on the job training, and get paid less.

Um, an Occupational Therapist might make that much, but an assistant wouldn't (in the US or Canada, anyway). You go to college to be an Assistant, and University & get a Master's Degree to be and Occupational Therapist.
