BPCC's PTA Program consists of a Pre-PTA component and a Clinical component. Students may work at any pace (part time/full time) to complete the pre-PTA courses and other requirements. When the pre-PTA courses have been completed (with a “C” or better), students apply for admission to the clinical component. Applications for the clinical component of the program are taken each spring, with a new clinical class beginning each July. The program is designed so that a full-time student may complete the pre-PTA component in 1 year and the clinical component in 13 months.
