Brief Description

Begin any time.

Advanced Practice Physiotherapy is a rapidly emerging area of practice in Canada. Employers require prospective candidates to come with specialized training and skills well beyond that delivered in entry to practice Physiotherapy programs.

Component courses of this certification have been individually delivered for over 2 years with excellent feedback and will continue to be offered individually but may now be purchased as a full Certification program at a lower overall cost. Advanced standing will be provided for courses taken through KCS or comparable courses including U of Alberta’s diagnostic imaging Rehab 570 and EIM’s transitional DPT.

Program Description: The program consists of two parts. The Part 1 is an on-line program consisting of 4 courses. Part 2 is an in-person weekend intensive course which will have on-line preparatory material prior to the in-person component.
