Physical Therapy APTA NCS Exam Prep Course

The NCS Advantage is the content we wish we had when we were studying for the APTA’s Neurologic Clinical Specialist examination. We compiled the material that was most beneficial in our study process in this NCS prep course, so you don’t have to spend your valuable time searching for resources. You can view the 16 lectures, study the handouts, and take our 300 practice exam questions – all at your own pace. It’s all in one place and in an organized format to make your study approach more efficient so you feel confident on test day. The NCS Advantage entails:

  • 16 modules with detailed audiovisual presentations pertaining to neurologic physical therapy practice
  • Supplementary journal articles and reference guides
  • Three 100-question practice exams with detailed explanations of correct answers
  • Access to the free RKA discussion forum
  • 32 contact hours approved for the States of Tennessee, Maryland, and South Carolina (contact us and we will facilitate CEU approval in your state)

Join the more than 200 people who have enrolled in the NCS Advantage to date.  Check out feedback from previous course participants here.
