In the midst of scanning through nutrisystem reviews, we stumbled upon important news for all NPTE applicants. The Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy (FSBPT) recently announced the following NPTE fee increases in 2010.
- Prometric’s fees for candidates will increase to $70.60 for the PT exam and $55.60 for the PTA exam for candidates sitting for the exam on or after January 1, 2010. Candidates pay this fee directly to Prometric.
- The fee for the PT and PTA National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE) will be increased from $350 to $370 effective January 1, 2010. This increase is needed to cover the increased cost for the ongoing maintenance and system enhancements to the NPTE, as well as the increased cost for exam-related security measures. Some of those measures include monitoring, investigation, technology enhancements and related legal expenses in protecting the intellectual property of the FSBPT.
