Washington, DC (PRWEB) March 20, 2010
The National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT), a not-for-profit credentialing agency for the occupational therapy industry, recently launched a new website to accentuate the benefits of NBCOT certification. NBCOT simplifies the certification process for those in occupational therapy by developing, administering, and continually reviewing the certification process to ensure that it reflects current industry standards.
The new website combines engaging graphics with informative links to provide an exciting portal for users to discover more about NBCOT certification. The homepage opens with a graphic of NBCOT’s new logo which highlights its specialty in occupational therapy. Directly above this graphic lies the site’s main toolbar with links to: certification candidates, certification renewal, services, competency resources, community, and NBCOT forums. Each link leads to a host of additional resources. For example, the certification candidates link leads to information concerning the online exam application, test preparation, scoring information, and more. To expedite the application and renewal process, NBCOT added “apply now” and “renew now” quick links to its homepage. Users can further connect with NBCOT through homepage links to its social media sites including Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
Blue Water Media designed the website to create an engaging yet informative portal for those interested in occupational therapy. To achieve this, Blue Water Media added an inviting color scheme and engaging graphics to evoke images of therapists assisting those in need. In addition, Blue Water Media designed the site architecture in a very intuitive way to allow for a streamlined user experience. To allow NBCOT to keep the occupational therapy community abreast of the latest industry and company news, Blue Water Media installed Joomla, an award winning content management system. Joomla enables clients to update and build their websites over a user friendly interface. NBCOT has leveraged this technology to build its message boards, course registry, and event calendar. The collaboration between NBCOT and Blue Water Media has resulted in a modern website which will surely promote its occupational therapy services.
