Task 2: Credentials
Complete this task before you begin the registration process.
TASK 2 ASSESS YOUR CREDENTIALS
a) Review the following document to learn about the knowledge, skills and attitudes you require to be successful in Canada:
Essential Competency Profile for Physiotherapists in Canada (PDF)
b) Complete the following self-assessment to help you determine if you are likely to meet the requirements to become registered with CPM:
Self-Assessment Readiness Tool (SART©)
SART© is NOT part of the registration process. CPM will not share the information you provide. Your answers are for your self-assessment only and will not be recorded or evaluated by anyone else.
c) Ensure that you have completed a university level, entry-to-practice degree (or credential by another name) in physiotherapy, awarded by a recognized institution authorized to issue credentials equivalent to a degree in Canada. Diplomas awarded by a non-university institution may be accepted if assessed and determined to be equivalent to at least a Bachelor’s degree in Canada.
d) The Canadian Alliance of Physiotherapy Regulators (CAPR) has created Source Country Profiles on their website which will assist future applicants in informed decision-making. The top 10 source countries are listed and the information includes a comparison of physiotherapy practice between Canada and the source country, a list of educational programs CAPR has assessed in the past 5 years and the Physiotherapy Competency Examination pass rate for previous first time test takers from the source country.
