New Eligible Certifications for PRT Credentialing

As we approach the upcoming application deadline for our Postural Restoration Trained (PRT) credentialing program, we are excited to announce that we have added additional eligible certifications. PRT credentialing was established in 2011 for Athletic Trainers (with Certification through the BOC), Strength and Conditioning Coaches (with CSCS Certification through the NSCA or SCCC Certification through the CSCCa) as a way to recognize and identify individuals with advanced training, extraordinary interest and devotion to the science of postural adaptations, asymmetrical patterns and the influence of polyarticular chains of muscles on the human body as defined by the Postural Restoration Institute.

Annually, the PRI Board of Directors reviews certifications, evaluating their post-secondary education requirements, scope of practice standards, and continuing education requirements, in consideration for eligibility for our PRT credentialing program. Two years ago, Athletic Therapists (with Certification through the CATA) were added to the list of eligible candidates. Now eligible to apply for PRT: Certified Exercise Physiologists, Certified Clinical Exercise Physiologists, and Registered Clinical Exercise Physiologists (with Certification through the ACSM).

Postural Restoration Trained (PRT) applications are due annually on October 15th, and our next testing program will take place on January 8-9th, following the Impingement & Instability course in Lincoln. If you have any questions about the PRT application or testing process, please contact Jen.
