Thinking about pursuing an allied health care career that helps people recover from injury or adapt to trauma or disability? At The College of Health Care Professions, our certificate training program can give you the skills you need to pursue a career as a physical therapy technician.

Whether this is the first step toward certification as a physical therapist or a career goal in itself, physical therapy techs (or physical therapist aids), are a critical partner in any patient’s treatment program. In this certificate program, you will learn anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, pathology and modality applications. From stretching to helping patients with exercise equipment, you will gain the skills needed to work one-on-one with patients to make a positive impact on their lives.

And the field is exploding. This is likely due to an increased demand among older populations for care in the areas of movement and physical healthcare for chronic conditions such as obesity and diabetes. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics* projects a 29 percent increase in the number of job opening for physical therapy assistants and aids from 2019 - 2029—substantially higher than the 3.7 percent projected growth rate for all occupations total.
