The Physical Agent Modalities Practitioner Credentialing Agency, Inc., LLC (PAMPCA), has designed a continuing education course in PAMs for the busy therapist. PAMPCA, LLC, is the ONLY credentialing agency in Physical Agent Modalities for OT practitioners.

You do not have to set aside multiple weekends to complete your credentialing training in physical agent modalities. Instead, you learn via the Internet in the comfort of your home or in small study groups and then attend only one 16-hour workshop. Our successful graduates are awarded 45 contact hours of continuing education credits.

The mission of Physical Agent Modalities Practitioner Credentialing Agency, Inc., LLC (PAMPCA), is to provide a credentialing process that includes the necessary education, testing, and monitoring of clinical preparedness for practitioners who want to use physical agent modalities in their practice. In doing so, the public is able to identify those healthcare professionals who are qualified to use physical agent modalities as part of their routine practice.

PAMPCA,LLC, was established to educate practitioners in the proper, safe and judicious use of physical agent modalities in the treatment of their clients. It provides a process by which all states and territories within the United States can individually define the appropriate education and certification standards for physical agent modalities use. PAMPCA, LLC, then, provides the education, testing and awarding of an initial certification for physical agent modalities use to practitioners. It has created an innovative, structured educational system leading to certifying individuals for using physical agent modalities. This education process is provided through web-based instructional media, a two-day workshop and supervised clinical experience.
