BCTC's Sports Medicine and Rehabilitative Therapy (SMaRT) program earned national recognition as an approved testing location. The American Medical Certification Association approved Berks Career and Technology Center to provide exams for Physical Therapy Aide Certification.
This is huge benefit to "SMaRT" students who will be able to test on-site and therefore leave BCTC with a certification that will allow them to enter the workforce right away. Some students will use this certification to work their way through college while others will start working full-time right away. Still, others will hold off on using it until after college.
