The CAPTE Accreditation Handbook includes the Rules of Practice and Procedure, the Standards and Required Elements for PTs and PTAs, and CAPTE's Position Papers.


The Minimum Required Skills of Physical Therapist Graduates at Entry-Level and Minimum Required Skills of Physical Therapist Assistant Graduates at Entry-Level were APTA Board of Directors policies that were rescinded in 2018. APTA no longer supports them, and they are no longer available from the association.
