PTs SHOULD NOT LET FCCPT TYPE 1 CERTIFICATE EXPIRE

Rate this Entry
by Maria Schneider

In a recent decision, USCIS demanded FCCPT issue Type 1 Certificates ONLY to graduates of university programs whose diploma reads “Master’s Degree” and who have at least 202.1 credit hours. Any graduate of a program that is equivalent to a US Master’s Degree will no longer be eligible to enter the US and practice Physical Therapy. In 2017, applicants will need a DPT to obtain a Type 1 Certificate.

Type 1 Certificate renewals will not be subject to this new ruling. Renewal applications do not examine education, but only licensure and verification of English proficiency. PTs with a current Type 1 can renew the Type 1 Certificate without being subject to the new standard. However, if the Type 1 expires, the PT will have to make a new application and will be subject to the new standard.

Type 1 Certificates are valid for five years from the date of issue. MU strongly advises PTs to timely renew their Type 1 Certification so that they can continue to maintain their immigration status and their ability to work in the US.
