 A.R.S. §32-2022 requires that all initial applicants for licensure as a physical therapist and certification as a physical therapist assistant obtain and provide a valid Arizona Fingerprint Clearance Card issued by the Department of Public Safety as an application requirement. In addition, approval for testing on the National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE) and the AZLAW examinations requires the Board of Physical Therapy have a copy of a valid fingerprint clearance card before approving applicants to test.  Visit azdps.gov for more information.
