Regarding this, how do I get my physical therapy assistant license?
First, a physical therapy assistant must have completed a degree program that is accredited. Second, graduates of an accredited physical therapy assisting degree program must pass the National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE), administered by the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy.
One may also ask, can I transfer my PTA license to another state? Hi, Once you take the NPTAE and pass it is not hard to transfer your license to another state. Each state has different waiting periods for licensure but if you have all of the required documents it should not be that long.

Verify Your PT/PTA is Licensed
- Ask to view their license from your state or jurisdiction. This will list the individual's name, initial licensure, date and renewal date.
- Look-up a licensed individual directly from the state's website. Go to Verify a PT/PTA license and find your state licensing board.
