PT Observation Hours Verification Instructions

PTCAS Hours Verification Portal

This portal is designed to allow applicants who are currently completing an application for the Centralized Application Service for Physical Therapists (PTCAS) to request an on-line verification of a PT clinical observation and/or work experience. If multiple applicants use your email address to request a verification, this portal allows you to manage these applicants through a single account.

ONCE YOU SUBMIT THE VERIFICATION, YOU DO NOT NEED TO SEND A HARD COPY TO PTCAS.
