P-L-A-N – Planned Learning and Assistance Network
Frequently asked questions about P-L-A-N
The FCCPT has launched a service which assists foreign applicants whose education has been found to be not equivalent to the first professional degree in physical therapy in the United States, or who have not met the specific requirements of a particular jurisdiction.
This program is designed to assist applicants in identifying appropriate educational coursework to meet the minimum requirements for U.S. educational equivalency or jurisdictional requirements.
This service is available for applicants who have used the FCCPT for their Type 1 – Comprehensive Review or Educational Credentials Review in the past and is available on an incremental basis for applicants who have used other credentialing agencies.
P-L-A-N is not currently available to applicants who have had the FCCPT Physical Therapist Assistant Educational Equivalency Review and whose credentials have been found to be not substantially equivalent to a physical therapist assistant degree in the U.S. A P-L-A-N Service for physical therapist assistants is being developed and will be announced when it is ready. If an applicant has deficiencies in the PTA tool review they should contact the FCCPT at firstname.lastname@example.org.
