Candidate for Accreditation Disclaimer
Effective July 2016, the Physical Therapist Assistant Program at Santa Fe College has been granted Candidate for Accreditation status by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (1111 North Fairfax Street, Alexandria, VA, 22314; 703-706-3245 and firstname.lastname@example.org). Candidacy is not an accreditation status nor does it assure eventual accreditation. Candidate for Accreditation is a pre-accreditation status of affiliation with the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education that indicates the program is progressing toward accreditation.
The final decision regarding accreditation will be made November of 2017 at the CAPTE regular meeting. Following full accreditation, graduates from the PTA program will be eligible to take the licensure examination (NPTAE) in January of 2018.
