Rehabilitation Therapy Assistant

Diploma 70 weeks

Rehabilitation Therapy Assistants, or RTAs, work alongside physiotherapists and occupational therapists to help clients rehabilitate their injuries. RTAs can work in hospitals, physiotherapy clinics, long-term care facilities, and rehabilitation centres.

RTAs need to be cognizant of the best practices in occupational therapy and physiotherapy practices, as well as emerging trends in the healthcare system, and the latest advances in theory and technology in the field. Getting relevant post-secondary training to be an RTA is vital, and the best place to get it is the Rehabilitation Therapy Assistant diploma program at CDI College.

As part of your training to become an RTA, you will become familiar with important facets of human anatomy and movement, physiology, human development, therapeutic recreation, gerontology, and more.

In the program at CDI College, you will also gain a solid understanding of the process of rehabilitation and how to assist people with sports or physical injuries.

Hands-on Rehabilitation Therapy Assistant Training

Before graduating from the program, you'll get a chance to test out your new skills in a 500-hour clinical practicum placement, ensuring that you will be job-ready and prepared to move into your new career as an RTA immediately.
