    ACOPRA australian exam

    hello!

    i am a recently graduated third year UK physiotherapist and have emigration status through my partner for australia. we intend to emigrate in november 2006 and i hope to sit the march 2007 written exam, followed by the clinical exam.

    my question is whether or not a newly graduated UK physiotherapist would be able to pass these exams? has anyone taken them recently and are they able to give an idea of the level of difficulty?

    any other advice would be gratefully received.

    thank you.

    Red face Re: ACOPRA australian exam

    Hi Emmanuela

    I am a South African Physiotherapist and i am possibly thinking of emigrating to Australia-Perth. I had an interview with an Australian Emigration Consultant in South Africa and he assures me, he can get me a Sponsor in Australia and thus i could bypass the ACOPRA EXAMS. He said that the sponsor i would work for does not work for the state and would be private- The sponsor would take full responsibility employing me.

    I would like to know if the above is true or would i have to do the exams?
    By reading all the posts i can see this is a very lenthy procedure and i would already like to prepare myself for what lies ahead.

    I would like to join the yahoo group you have set-up. My email address is
    [email protected]

    I would really appreciate it if you can get back to me.
    Thanks in advance for all what you have done by setting up the site.

    Re: ACOPRA australian exam

    Hi,

    that's partly true. There is NO way you can work in Perth or wherever in WA without being officially recognised and registered with the WA Board. So you have to do the exams.

    BUT, you can work under limited registration for one year even without having enrolled the procedure of recognition ONLY in the States: NSW, SA and VIC. After that you are required to enrol the procedure or to leave the profession.

    So, no matter you have a sponsor, in Perth you can't work till you finish the exam because WA Board doesn't give temporary limited registration.

    You are welcome to join our group study, you'll find lots of useful info and you can talk to all the other overseas physios all over Australia (there are few Southafricans too, one in Perth) and ask for their advice. I have sent you the invitation to the Yahoo group through the email address you have provided.

    See you in the forum and careful with migration agents.

    Emanuela

    About going to Australia???

    Hello all!!
    I am a overseas educated Physio (Colombia). At present I reside in Vancouver, Canada. I am Canadian Citzn
    I almost finish the whole process in CAN but the Clinical exam. (june 2007)
    The process here and in AUS are quite similar, credentialling, written and clinical exam.

    Due to personal reasons I want to apply to Aus. I am familiar with the ACOPRA process in order to get a registration as a PT.

    My idea is to apply as an Immigrant because I want to be there as soon as possible.

    I want to join my family in Sydney but I donot want to wait until i get my registration there because that could last more than 18 months.

    I want to know if some of you have the experience of applying as a PT under the skilled worker visa program and how long it takes to get the immigrant status??

    I beleive is similar to Canada, first you get the landed Immigrant status and then you continue the process once you are there....

    I just want to know how long that could take???

    Besides....I am visiting Australia in May and I would like to participate a few days in a clinical exam study group if is possible. I am studying really hard here and I would like to experience the Australian method.

    Thank you!

    Re: ACOPRA australian exam

    Hi,

    for Aecop in March you have to apply first for eligibility. There are no deadlines for that, but according to when your application is considered eligible then you'll be allowed to do the exam. I reckon it's time for you to sent the documents now if you wanna do the March exam. Go to http://www.physiocouncil.com.au/ and you can read the official procedure. For help and more info and to talk to people involved in the process you can be part of our study group, but for that I need you to send me a Yahoo email address.

    Hope this helps.
    Emanuela

    Re: ACOPRA australian exam

    Hi,
    My name is Kieran and I'm a newly graduated physio from England.
    Since qualifying I've been volunteering at a private outpatients clinic and have also been taking care of the clinic while the owner was away.
    I'm keen to go back to Australia (have already been once while travelling) and begin my career in a country that values my skills!
    I'm hoping to take the March '08 exam and I'd like to join your group - my email is [email protected]
    Thanks,

    [FONT="Palatino Linotype"][I]- Kieran[/I][/FONT]
