Pennsylvania requires that the graduate of an accredited PTA program pass the National Physical Therapy Examination for the Physical Therapist Assistant administered by The Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy.
Information relevant to the application process and requirements of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania can be accessed via the APTA Website (http://www.apta.org/) or the Federation of the State Boards of Physical Therapy (http://www.fsbpt.org/).
Students planning on practicing outside of the Commonwealth should access the above websites for information specific to that state's requirements.
