PT assistant: Open to support personnel employed under the direction and supervision of a physical therapist (eg physical therapist assistant, aide, technician or helper, rehabilitation assistant, classroom therapy assistant).

Retired: Open to physical therapists that are permanently retired from practice and are a member of a WCPT member organisation.

Student: Students currently enrolled in a physical therapist professional entry level qualifying programme and who are graduating in 2017 or after are eligible for the student rate.  Students who graduated in or before December 2016 are not eligible.  The student rate does not apply to physical therapists in post qualifying graduate programmes or to other graduate students (eg MSc, PhD).  Physical therapy assistant students are also eligible for the student rate.
