What People Say About Us

The On Demand course format option allowed me to stop and restart as needed, as well as walk on the treadmill as I learned!

Mary Ann Ceasar, OTR/L
Ergo Process, Inc.

Thank you for a very informative and practical course on pre-placement post-offer screenings! I appreciated the extensive knowledge, expertise, and ability to adjust/tailor the course to the individual needs of attendees. The format allowed those new to the subject and the "seasoned" practitioner to gain very useful and current information. I hope to attend future classes and highly recommend this course to others who may be interested in this topic.

Kathy Wolf, OTR, CRC
Waukesha Memorial Hospital

I could tell that Jim is an expert in this field. Him and his staff are very approachable and responsive to any questions or concerns and seem to always go above and beyond in helping us. Great company to work with!

Jean Dutton, MS, LAT
Mile Bluff Medical Center

Jim made watching the course On Demand very interesting and was able to maintain attention through interaction with everyone in the room. Keep doing exactly what you've been doing because I thought it was great!

Joshua Dahl, MS, ATC
Winona Health

This was my first On Demand course and I liked it. I appreciated that Jim was mindful of the fact that he was on video. It is nice to be able to pause and repeat the information as needed.

Susan Hardesty, MS, OTR
Eskenazi Health

Jim Mecham was the course instructor for the On Demand course. He is a very good speaker, very relaxed ,and very knowledgeable. He made a 7-hour video very tolerable.

Jim Mecham had an awesome personality, explained topics clearly, and answered all questions positively!

Jessica Haaf, DPT

Exceptional as always! Jim is a wealth of knowledge and based on his presentations you know he continues to review the latest research, literature, and incorporates it into the lectures and software.

Karen Spiecher, OTR/L
Physiotherapy Associates

Since I did this course On Demand, it was slightly to my disadvantage during the on-site visit (since I wasn't actually there). However, the video footage was great and I still got all the information from the people who were there.

Tiffany Hebert
Northfield Hospital and Clinics

I like how Jim uses multiple forms of visual presentation. The On Demand POET course was great!

Christopher Due
St. Lukes University Hospital Network

I have taken several courses with OccuPro over the years. Having the course material and being able to revisit it online when I need to is the MAJOR differentiator from other competitors and other systems.

Bays Gibson, PT, Clinic Director
Lucas Therapies

I like the laid back discussions and small group interactions. I was able to learn a lot from everyone in the classroom. I was able to implement the research from the class into my practice right away.
