Flying to states?......
Hello readers, I hope you read the first part of this article last month, We saw the basic procedures to fly to states ( forgot it ,No poblem!click here)This month we will know about the credential evaluating Agencies .
Who are they?
As we saw last month the regulatory bodies of licensure procedures are the State Boards of Physical therapy in individual states.Earlier these boards evaluated the transcripts of foreign trained therapists and issued temporary licensure. With the drastic increase in the number of applications for licensure, this job was entrusted to private agencies who do the job for the state boards.
There are a number of credential evaluating Agencies, So when you want to evaluate your credentials you should be well aware of the Agency you Choose.This is important because the State Boards do not accept all the Agencies.So we need to know which state recognises which Agency.
The following are some of the Accepted Credential evaluating Agencies (The initials below each agency suggest the states in which they are accepted)
