Since June 2023 when I started this sessions on AMC preparation the story is different now. The Two lecturers Namely, Dr Swapnil and Dr Udara are exceptionally committed and deliver well. The team is always available to answer to us anytime. They provide great support. I have not done the skill assessment yet, hoping to get that done this week and hopefully I will sit for the exam in November 2023.

About The APC Examination

What is the APC Exam?

The healthcare sector is constantly growing and has a high demand for physiotherapists in Australia. Therefore, the Government of Australia welcomes registered physiotherapists from around the world to join the healthcare industry in Australia. To practise as a physiotherapist in Australia, you need to clear the APC exam. The Australian Physiotherapy Council examination assesses if the knowledge and skills of the candidate meet the Physiotherapy Practice Thresholds in Australia which are set by the Physiotherapy Board of Australia. The APC exam is your portal to prove your competence and skills to become a registered physiotherapist in Australia. You can opt for a remote written assessment in which you will be able to attend the exam from your personal location.
