I am very thankful to be a part of this campus

I attended OTA 3 years ago. I struggled the past 3 years, and finally came back with the encouragement of my dear, sweet husband to reengage with OTA. Never once did I feel chided for not having returned sooner. My counselor, Adam Darwish, has supported my learning greatly, not only when I was there on campus but through e-mail and texting. He did everything he said he would do. I re-took the Futures class with Michelle Volmering, who remains a superb instructor. She really helps us to understand the process. She gave us many handouts to keep us on track when we returned home. She shared her passion and her life’s ups and downs to help us to feel normal and to have hope, encouraging us to persevere in our education. She goes over and beyond any requirement of duty by providing extra student help sessions with the on-line Mastermind Community (MMC), which she records live on the Atlanta campus, and with Focus Groups, which I was able to attend live while in Atlanta for the week. I live out of state, so I regret that I can’t attend these bimonthly sessions regularly, but I thank the Lord they have the Mastermind community online. Also, I have found the online XLTs extremely helpful. The on campus support staff offers their assistance with very engaging charm. I really appreciate all of the staff, and I want to give a big thank you to Vheda, who helped me with my laptop. She is very competent and spent the necessary extra time to help me with a cheerful attitude. Also, Celeste, David Dobbs and Edmond Gutnecht all helped with enthusiasm during and outside of class. They never made us feel like a burden, or stupid, but instead patiently encouraged and challenged me personally. I admire Taylor Frame as an excellent instructor. I took him a few years ago, but he was very encouraging when I was there on campus last week. Since I did attend 3 years ago, I want to add that OTA has continually re-evaluated and updated their material. I had heard references to the changes while listening to the XLTs online. Therefore, I revisited the online Foundations classes and the Futures classes and found many good changes that clarified what I was seeing in the markets. I want to give a big thank you to Kappa Man in the MMC. He too showed a lot of patience with us students, helping us understand Michelle Volmering’s definitions of levels. Right after joining MMC, I listened to him and felt like the expense was worth it. Furthermore, the online support chat group offers a great deal of help. They work behind the scenes so I want to let them know that I appreciate them. I am very thankful to be a part of this campus and hope, with their continued help and support, to persevere and succeed in the near future with trading, remembering that I don’t have to win even 50% of the time to be successful.

WHAT A GREAT ADVENTURE

WHAT A GREAT ADVENTURE! I absolutely enjoy OTA and everything that they have to offer. Great experience, a lot to learn but definitely worth the effort! Highly recommended to anyone who is willing to take their life to the next level. Amazingly friendly, welcoming and family oriented personnel, always willing to go out of their way and more to help and support their students.
Thank you, OTA Tampa Bay – Kevin, Brian, Beverly, Matthew, Haydee, Dennis and David, for all that you do!

I love OTA

My husband, David and I love OTA! We’ve been taking the FOREX class this week and our instructor, Cliff Miller, is phenomenal! He knows the material inside out, is extremely patient with explaining things and answering questions and acknowledges differences in the way people learn and does a great job accommodating everyone’s needs. Student support staff are great too.

This futures class was so awesome

This futures class was so awesome! Wayne did a great job of leading the class with his knowledge & really helped everyone grasp the concepts. He was thoughtful of the class as a whole and really focused on each student and their questions. The highlight of his class was learning the breakout trades which I don’t believe would have been so emphasized through other instructors! He went into a lot of detail on how to become successful with them in a short period of time, & is even answering questions through e-mail after class as I think of them! Thank you, Wayne & OTA, for everything you do, I am so excited and happy I have decided to become a student with you!

wonderful, patient and supportive

I have been a student of Online Trading Academy (OTA) since May of this year (2017). I cannot tell you how wonderful, patient and supportive I have found both the staff and instructors to be. I will straight up tell you, I am a handful…. Being from the Midwest it is in my nature to tell you if I’m unhappy, if I disagree with you, etc., so for me to post a stellar review is more the exception than the rule for a company. I graduated from college with a criminal justice major (Bachelors) and Paralegal Certification (Master’s Certification). In my 30s I raised my children (stay at home mom) and in my 40s I became a teacher. I have absolutely NO BACKGROUND IN FINANCE, business, etc. When I saw the process on how they teach us to trade in the 3 day class I was blown away cuz there’s a specific step-by-step process that ANYONE can do. I have continued to be impressed by the support provided. There are literally HUNDREDS of videos to watch to reinforce what you’ve been taught and then you can take advanced videos to expand your knowledge base. As a former math and special education teacher, I can tell you that success comes from consistent practice and this is what makes OTA so amazing! For the few posts I have read where people were unhappy, I am inclined to think they did not reach out to the staff and get the support that is available. I have called and been assisted with various tasks, such as uploading a trading platform, getting help on how to use worksheets, and what videos to watch before taking an upcoming class so I will be better able to understand the content. When I signed up I included my 15 year old who will be taking classes next summer and I have NO DOUBT he will do extremely well…. He is in school, he knows how to study, and the motivation to succeed is reinforced with the community provided by OTA, such as the mastermind group (this is an upgrade where regular/novice students, such as myself, have access to teachers and highly successful students wherein I can ask questions, read blogs on how others succeeded, get tips for trades, etc.) What I am impressed also with this company is that if you DON’T upgrade to the mastermind level (and not everyone can afford it) when taking the classes, the teachers provide their email addresses to send them questions or get feedback on trades AND we are provided with information on which FREE WEBSITES outside of OTA we can use to assist us in evaluating assets/trades. Mastermind is not a goal that we students are told we need to purchase to be successful. Honestly, there’s a reason some people are successful and others aren’t and it’s not because of where they were educated. I could continue to go on and on and on but I think my point has been made. This is a company that cares about the success of its students, is constantly updating its software and worksheets, and has responded to my phone calls/questions which quite honestly have been on border-panic mode a couple times. Definitely would give 10 stars if I could.

so happy that I found this school

I just finished my Option Class today. My instructor, Larry Jacobson, was the best instructor for Options class. He made a very difficult class seem easy. I highly recommend this school if you want to learn how to trade like a professional. I’m so happy that I found this school.

A great place to be educated in trading successfully

A great place to be educated in trading successfully by experienced traders and student centered instructors. Having the support people at the Vienna location, both support staff and content providers, is an essential part of being successful in your market trading endeavors. Nice place to be, nice place to learn, nice place to feel supported for success.
