Pre-Physical Therapist Assistant Certificate (CT.PTA)

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Divisions and Departments

The Pre-Physical Therapist Assistant certificate program offers the general education courses needed for an associate degree in Physical Therapist Assistant in order to transfer to a college offering the degree. York Technical College has a cooperative agreement to provide a 1 + 1 program in which the first year of general courses are completed at York Technical College and the second year of core coursework is finished at Greenville Technical College. Students wishing to transfer to Greenville Technical College must apply directly to and complete all requirements. Completion of this PTA certificate program does not guarantee admission to the second phase at Greenville Technical College. There may be differences in the grading and awarding of transfer credit for prior college courses between York Technical College and Greenville Technical College. Courses offer basic skills for students to enter health-related jobs. Greenville Technical College holds space for two qualified students from York Technical College to enter their Physical Therapist Assistant Program each fall. Should more than two York Technical College students qualify for entry into the PTA Program at Greenville Technical College for the same year, two students would be selected based upon a total weighted admissions score.
