There is no doubt that physical therapists provide a valuable and needed service to the general public. PTs provide healing treatments to patients recovering from injuries, accidents, medical ailments and surgeries. Specific goals may include working on the patient’s motor skills, flexibility, range of motion and overall physical health. Maintaining their own good health, Physical Therapists must be physically fit in their own right in order to assist their patients with standing, sitting and walking.
How You Can Stand Out from Your Peers
Continuing education programs are available to the more than 60,000 members of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) of which less than 10 percent have taken advantage. Physical Therapists with improved clinical skills are recognized with Board-certified status and are exposed to a greater number of PT career opportunities and premium pay rates.
Travel Force Staffing offers free Continuing Education (CE) as part of our benefits’ package including online courses that allow PTs who are on assignment to test in real-time. While accruing continuing education credits, Physical Therapists can further their career by fulfilling state board requirements.
Areas of additional education and training include:
- CCS (Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Certified Specialist)
- ECS (Clinical Electrophysiologic Certified Specialist)
- GCS (Geriatric Certified Specialist)
- NCS (Neurologic Certified Specialist)
- OCS (Orthopaedic Certified Specialist)
- PCS (Pediatric Certified Specialist)
- SCS (Sports Certified Specialist)
- WCS (Women’s Health Certified Specialist)
The American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties (ABPTS) also offers continuing education in paediatrics, sports and women’s health. Certification in any of these fields usually yields an above average income when compared to non-certified physical therapists.
