Registration for the October 2023 Virtual Workshop for Educators is now closed. To join the waitlist for our next workshop, planned for February 13-14, 2024, immediately preceding the APTA-CSM meeting in Boston, Massachusetts, please complete this brief form. Waitlist registrants will get early access to the online registration portal.
The workshop is expected to run from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on the first day and from 8:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. on the second day—however, attendees can stay as late as 6:00 p.m. for individualized instruction. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
The workshop will include presentations from FSBPT staff and trainers on item writing, test construction, preparing students for the NPTE, registering for and taking the NPTE, and other relevant topics. There will also be time for one-on-one assistance from trainers and staff.
