To become a physical therapist, you first need to complete a bachelor's degree covering all courses needed to enter graduate school. Then you can apply to accredited university programs to receive your doctorate of physical therapy, now required to practice. Graduate school lasts 3-4 years depending on the university's program. To be a physical therapy tech, you could find a community college or technical school that would provide certification. The university degree is better.

I know of 3 types of PT jobs: A physical therapist (PT), a physical therapist assistant (PTA), and a physical therapy technician. To be a PT, you would need to graduate with a bachelor's from a university and then attend physical therapy school which ranges from 2-3 years. A PTA is an associates degree (I believe). Both require you to obtain a license to practice by passing a licensure exam. I am a physical therapy tech, and was trained on the job. There are a few full time physical therapy techs at the clinic I work at, but most of us are college students working part time to get experience before applying to physical therapy school.
