FCCPT News

The Foreign Credentialing Commission on Physical Therapy (FCCPT) is one of the two US government-approved organizations that are authorized to evaluate the educational credentials of internationally-trained Physical Therapists. FCCPT has just launched a new website which is easier to use than their prior website. The new site allows for electronic tracking and reporting.

In other FCCPT news, FCCPT recently discontinued use of the Type II Certification. Now all applicants to FCCPT must obtain the Type I Certificate. FCCPT has also announced the implementation of the most current Coursework Evaluation Tool-5, for use as of July 1, 2009. Any evaluations for current standards begun after July 1, 2009 will reflect the requirements on the new tool CWT-5.
