Dear Students,

The IPTA has been made aware that Continental Testing Services is currently closed. We understand this causes a dilemma for many graduating students who are rushing to submit their NPTE application, prior to tonight’s deadline.

From what we have been told, Continental Testing Services is still accepting applications online. The State is currently working with essential staff only for the next month, and is making effort to reschedule or work with applicants to meet any new test dates/schedules.

Due to an extremely high volume of inquiries, the Prometric Candidate Care line has been temporarily closed to inbound phone calls.  Students must contact them via to reschedule or cancel an exam.  All fees for cancellations and rescheduling are being waived.

For graduating PTA students: The April 7 PTA exam has been suspended. If you registered for the April PTA exam, please continue to monitor the FSBPT website for new information. Read more here. FSBPT will also contact you via email as updates become available.

For graduating PT students: According to FSBPT’s website, the April 28th PT exam is still scheduled. FSBPT is monitoring the situation closely and will share updates via email and on as soon as they are available. FSBPT has waived all rescheduling and cancellation fees for all candidates who choose to reschedule to a later exam date.

The IPTA will monitor if any new developments become available, but recommend that students continue to check the FSBPT website at for any updates.
