Join us to learn about New River CTC's Physical Therapist Assistant Associate of Applied Science program.
The program is now accepting applications for classes starting in August 2021, which will be offered at New River CTC’s Raleigh County Campus in Beaver.
Notice to all Prospective PTA Students:
Graduation from a physical therapist assistant education program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE), 3030 Potomac Ave., Suite 100, Alexandria, Virginia 22305-3085; phone; 703-706-3245; email@example.com is necessary for eligibility to sit for the licensure examination, which is required in all states.
New River Community and Technical College is seeking accreditation of a new physical therapist assistant education program from CAPTE. On March 1, 2020, the program submitted an Application for Candidacy, which is the formal application required in the pre-accreditation stage. Submission of this document does not assure that the program will be granted Candidate for Accreditation status. Achievement of Candidate for Accreditation status is required prior to implementation of the technical phase of the program; therefore, no students may be enrolled in technical courses until Candidate for Accreditation status has been achieved. Further, though achievement of Candidate for Accreditation status signifies satisfactory progress toward accreditation, it does not assure that the program will be granted accreditation.
