I’m currently attending DAA and have really been enjoying it so far. Katie’s video lectures are very informative and my instructors Logan and Tara are very friendly and knowledgeable as well! As a mom of a young child, this program has been amazing considering classes are only 1 day a week. I definitely recommend this program to anyone who is thinking about joining this career path!

My experience at DAA was great!!! Katie did amazing with the zoom lectures, I loved the hands on training I received, my instructor made me feel comfortable asking questions/she was very helpful during clinicals, and I was able to make lifelong friendships throughout the course. Saturday’s were definitely the highlight of my week!!! I’ve been in the ortho field for almost two years now, and I’m thankful for this course, and how it jump started my career!!!
