The Certification of Achievement in Pelvic Physical Therapy is offered by the Section on Women’s Health of the American Physical Therapy Association. The Section on Women’s Health offers three levels of Pelvic Physical Therapy courses. These courses provide evidence-based education for the learner to acquire skills and knowledge to provide Physical Therapy interventions for male and female clients of all ages with pelvic floor dysfunctions, including pelvic pain, urinary incontinence, endometriosis, and many other conditions. This certification prepares the learner for the Women’s Health specialization Exam.

The requirements are attendance at the SOWH Pelvic Physical Therapy classes level 1,2,3, pass the competency skills tests for each level, pass didactics tests for each level, and submit a case report. Experienced therapists who have completed previous training in pelvic physical therapy can apply for the transitional CAPP. I qualify for the tCAPP.

I have nearly completed the requirements for the Certificate of Achievement in Pelvic Physical Therapy. I just received my certificate of completion for the Level 3 class I took in March 2008 in Portland. I received a 94% on my post test. All that is left to do is to complete my Case Study and submit it. This could take some time as it involves both evaluating and following a client through their pelvic floor therapy, writing the requirements for the case study, and having it accepted. I expect to complete this process in the next 6 months. I’ll keep you posted!
