The Eligibility Assessment is a simple document-based Assessment designed to ensure that you hold an entry-level physiotherapy qualification and are therefore eligible to continue with the Standard Assessment pathway.
Successful Eligibility Assessment candidates will be awarded with an Interim Certificate. This is valid for two years and allows you to meet one of thew requirements for Limited Registration for Supervised Practice with the Physiotherapy Board of Australia (the Board), which is a part of AHPRA. For information on other requirements for Limited Registration for Supervised Practice, please contact the Board directly.
This means that you can practice as a physiotherapist (under certain conditions) to assist you in preparing for the Clinical Assessment.
Upon a successful outcome, you will be able to apply for the Written Assessment via your Dashboard.
You are automatically entitled to free insurance and membership with the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA). Please click here for more information.
