Educational Degree Program-
All states require P.T.s to be licensed. Licensing requirements vary by states but typically include passing the National Physical Therapy Examination or a similar state-administrated exam. A number of states require continuing education for physical therapist to keep their license. After gaining work experience, some physical therapist choose to become board certified in a particular clinical specialty, such as pediatrics or sports physical therapy. Board certification requires passing an exam. The Services has over 500 physical or occupational therapist. Each year they need new therapist due to changes in personnel and the demands of the field. Positions for physical and occupational therapist in the Coast Guard are filled by U.S. Public health services officers. Physical and occupational therapist have the opportunity to advance to senior management or command positions in medical administration.
A bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university is required for almost all jobs as an Athletic Trainer, but many athletic trainers hold a masters or doctoral degree. Athletic trainers may need a masters or higher degree to be eligible for some positions, especially those in colleges and universities, and to increase their advancement opportunities. Because some positions in high schools involve teaching along with athletic trainer responsibilities, a teaching certificate or license could be required. In 2006, 46 States required athletic trainers to be licensed or registered; this requires certification from the Board of Certification, Inc.

For Certification, athletic trainers need a bachelor's degree from an accredited athletic training program. In addition, a successful candidate for BOC certification must pass a rigorous examination. To retain certification, credential holders must continue taking medical-related courses and adhere to the BOC standards of practice. In states where licensure is not required, certification is voluntary but may be helpful for those seeking jobs and advancement. Voluntary certification is available from the National Athletic Trainers Association Board of Certification ( NATABOC).
