Kennebec Valley Community College offers a two year program for prospective occupational therapy assistants. KVCC offers the only OTA program in the State of Maine, located in the center of the State and approximately one hour from places such as Portland and Bangor, as well as the coast and mountains. Unfortunately, there is little ethnic diversity. Because of its rural location, demographics show 97.92 percent of the population in the school and town of Fairfield is of Caucasian decent. Besides there being such little ethnic diversity there is a large variety in age, lifestyle, experience, academic preparation and in individual perceptions among students. KVCC offers students learning experiences in the classroom and out in the field. Half of the curriculum involves hands-on participation.
