Officer Training Academy (OTA) is an interactive online course that will provide you an opportunity to hone your leadership skills and gain the knowledge you need to be successful in your officer role. This event is completely virtual with a mixture of self-driven online learning and facilitated virtual meetings.

Officer Training Academy connects undergraduate Sigma Chis to the people, tools and resources that they will need to be successful in their chapter officer roles. It is a must-attend event for any officer who is looking to take his Fraternity chapter to the next level.

One of the features we see undergraduate brothers benefit from is our live sessions. The interaction and best practices shared among officers from different chapters at each live session creates long term contacts, friendships and a circle to rely on throughout the year. There's different focus areas for each session
