Certificate in Aquatic Physical Therapy Clinical Competency

The CAPTCC provides PTs and PTAs with a comprehensive study of the fundamental knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to provide safe evidence-based patient care using the aquatic environment.  CAPTCC participants will demonstrate clinical competency in aquatic physical therapy by completing both written and practical skills tests upon completion of the program.

This is the only certificate program sponsored by a component of the APTA specifically designed for the aquatic physical therapy professional.

The CAPTCC is an assessment-based certificate in Aquatic Physical Therapy.
CAPTCC is not a credential.  This program is not recognized by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialists (ABPTS) and participants are not entitled to the designation of board certified specialist.

There are 7 online learning modules through the APTA Learning Center and a 3 day pool course to complete the entire certificate series
