April PT and PTA Exam Update

Prometric has closed all of their North American test sites through April 30, 2020, due to safety measures imposed in response to the pandemic.  Prometric plans to reopen as many test centers as possible on May 1, 2020.  Site capacity at these centers will be reduced in order to adhere to social distancing guidelines.

NPTE Exams:

All candidates currently eligible to take the April 7 PTA exam or the April 28 PT exam will receive an updated Authorization to Test (ATT) letter with a testing window of May 1 - May 31, 2020.  Only those candidates currently approved for the April 7 or April 28 exams will receive this testing window.

New ATT letters will be issued the week of April 13, 2020.  Prometric is in the process of cancelling the original appointments and refunding the sitting fees.  As soon as you get your updated ATT letter, schedule your new appointment.  They know some candidates will be unable to test in May due to COVID-19 hotspots. Contact exameregistration@fsbpt.org to let them know if you are unable to schedule your appointment in the May window.

Law Exams: NPTE Exams – April 7 PTA and April 28 PT

The current window to take an FSBPT administered law exam is sixty days. They will temporarily expand this window to ninety days to allow for more flexibility in scheduling. All pending law exam candidates will receive an updated ATT letter with an eligibility start date of May 1, 2020. In addition, all newly approved law exam candidates will receive the ninety-day window until further notice is given.
