    Indian Physiotherapist- How To Get Fccpt Clearnce To Get Pt Jobs In Usa

    To Fellow Physiotherapists,

    USA processing for Indian Physical Therapist have become near impossible because of the deficiencies in General Education. When we apply for credentialing, the PT Credentialing board in USA gives the report as deficient in General Education and Professional Education is substantially equivalent.

    In Brief:
    General Education – DEFICIENT
    Professional Education- SUBSTANTIALLY EQUIVALENT
    ( Substantially equivalent means an individual has satisfied or exceeded the minimum number of credits required for a United States baccalaureate degree of Physical Therapy.)

    Therefore the viable solution for those Indian Physical Therapist who aspire to work in USA would be to make up the deficiency in General Education, in two ways:

    ( I ) For one you can get general credits in online programs- CLEP (College-Level Examination Program). This will sound easy than it is. Simply enroll, pay the fees and get the credits.
    Check this out.

    1. If you are interested to do the online course in a very small University, they will charge you approximately $65 for a Basic Physical Geography and $235 for 5 credits in Math. Visit http://universalclass.com/index.htm for more details.

    2. If you are interested to do your credits in a well-known University, for example., University of Phoenix- which is the largest accredited private university in North America and the World’s largest Online University, you will be charged $494 for 3 credits. Each online class lasts five or six weeks. Visit http://www.phoenix.edu/ for more details.

    3. At some colleges, you may be able to apply for your CLEP credit to the college’s core curriculum requirements. For example., all students may be required to take at least 6 hours of Humanities, 6 hours of English, 3 hours of Mathematics, 6 hours of Natural Science and 6 hours of Social Science, with no particular subjects in these disciplines specified. In these instances, CLEP credit may be given as “6 hrs- English Credit” or “3 hrs- Math Credit”, without specifying for which English or Mathematics courses credit has been awarded. It costs approximately $60 for a credit. Visit http://www.collegeboard.com/student/...lep/about.html for more details.

    4. You can also get your credits in Baker College, which charges $175 per credit. Visit http://www.baker.edu/ for more details.

    5. The University of Washington also gives you a very good online course support for which we have to pay $1000 for Humanities-Philosophy with 5 credits, that will take 10 weeks. Within this period, you will have to do 9 assignments and 2 examinations. For 5 credits in Mathematics, they will charge $1000. You will have to give 5 examination for this. Visit http://www.onlinelearning.washington...um/phil120.asp for more details.


    IMPORT NOTE: THE COLLEGE- LEVEL EXAMINATION PROGRAM HAS A POLICY THAT CANDIDATES MAY NOT REPEAT A CLEP EXAM OF THE SAME TITLE WITHIN SIX MONTHS. SCORES OF THE EXAMS REPEATED EARLIER THAN SIX MONTHS WILL BE CANCELED AND TEST FEES FORFEITED. FURTHER, THERE IS NO CLEP CENTRE IN INDIA. YOU WOULD NEED TO GO TO PHILIPPINES OR GUAM AND TAKE EACH COURSE TAKEN INDIVIDUALLY. LAB CREDITS IN PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY CANNOT BE OBTAINED BY CLEP COURSE.

    ( II ) Understanding the US procedures for Physical Therapy and knowing the status of Indian Physical Therapist, HCMI- a Singapore based company, have come up with a practical solution- DEFICIENCY MAKE-UP PROGRAM (DMP). The DMP program, a 6 month course, is the viable solution for making up general education deficiencies within India. Courses are conducted in BISHOP HEBER COLLEGE, TRICHY for $2,500 and $3000 in Chennai ( enrollment going on for Batch 1 at Loyola and Stella Maris Colleges) for more than 50 credits. If you refer a candidate, who would join DMP program, you will also be awarded a referral bonus of $100.

    So, the choice is yours now, because you may be the right person to decide your career by evaluating the above mentioned two ways.

    I would like to say that though you would have to spare or spend 6 months for DMP program it will be most effective and worthwhile. If you want any further clarifications, please feel free to write.


    Kind regards,

    Re: Indian Physiotherapist- How To Get Fccpt Clearnce To Get Pt Jobs In Usa

    Hello everybody on the path of US license. Very specific question:
    Does FCCPT accepts CLEP college mathematics - 6 credits exam for mathematics deficiency? I only ask because there is not mathematics field in the CWT form.

If you work more wisely the cost may be much much that the previous quote. Only thing you need to spend time and understand the entire thing.

    Hi Paul,

    I need some information regarding the thing you mentioned above. Have sent you a mail on you id. Please check & get back. Thank you.

    Re: Indian Physiotherapist- How To Get Fccpt Clearnce To Get Pt Jobs In Usa

    Hi, I am an indian physio; living in canada.. I have done my B.P.T from RGUHS.I have few queries hope i get answers:

    1. I want to take NPTE exam as soon as possible. I have heard that NY state has min requirement so it will take less time. And for NY there is diff process called new york verification: so my que is, do i have to do type 1 verification as well to take NPTE?Or just new york verification is enough?

    2. I live in canada and also have tourist visa of US valid for 10 yrs; but i have heard that i can appear for NPTE from canada as well. Is this true? And if true; do i need type 1?

    3. If i want to work in US as a physio; do i have to have health care worker certificate? Or do type 1? Or just new york verification is enough for NPTE exam and to work as well?

    4. I already had taken TOEFL twice for canadian physiotherapy licensure exam, and have scores valid till Nov and Dec 2015. So was thinking that if at all i need to take toefl again for NPTE or Type 1, i better use that score before it expires.*
    My toefl scores:
    Nov 2013 exam- R20, L20, S26, W25 = total 91
    Dec 2013 exam- R27, L27, S23, W24 = total 101
    is this valid score?

    Hope to hear soon from someone...

    thanks.
