    Re: what to prepare to be Physiotherapist assistant in Australia or New zealand ?

    Hi,
    I am not aware that there are any courses for Physio Assistants in NZ.
    Usually, this is a position for anyone to apply. Experience in health care or elderly care is appreciated, but not neccessary.

    There are courses in Australia: APA | Physiotherapy Assistants
    Although I am not quite sure, why you would want to go that way when you are already enrolled in a programme that will give you a much higher qualification.

    You are right - communication is one of the main areas that an employer will look at.

    Good luck,
    Fyzzio

    Re: what to prepare to be Physiotherapist assistant in Australia or New zealand ?

    Hi thank you for your answering

    The reason why I want to work as a Physiotherapy Assistants in NZ or AU is that

    1. I want to experience more big word(cause Korea is little bit small) but I cannot afford to pay the enrollment fee of University(entrance or transfer)
    So I just wanted to go though the Assistant program to become familliar with AU and NZ's society and more fluent in english.

    2. I wonder if this trying will be worth or not. I'm so young that I cannot make my life plan perfectly.

    3. OK my Long term goal is becoming Physiotherapist in AU or NZ. so Is there any better idea that you think? just tell me Plz
