PNF 3B

PNF 3B:

Instead of the first PNF 4 course, participants may take a second PNF3 course with a different instructor. This second PNF3 course will be called PNF3B.

A PNF3B course must be taken with a different IPNFA instructor than the participant’s first PNF3 course.

PNF 3B objectives are the same as a PNF3 course, however testing is the same as a PNF 4 course: Written test, practical test and patient demonstration of 10-15 minutes. Minimum score of each test must be 66%

PNF 3B Course Description:  See PNF 3

Participants: Licensed Physical Therapists, Licensed Occupational Therapists

Prerequisites: Successful completion of PNF 1+2, PNF3 (or 3 month Vallejo program)

Clothing: Please wear appropriate lab clothing and shoes

Hours of Attendance: minimum of 37 hours

Course Rules:

  1. A PNF3B course must be taken with a different IPNFA instructor than the participant’s first PNF3 course
  2. The minimum time period between PNF 3 and PNF 3B is 6 months, meaning that participants cannot take PNF 3B until 6 months after completion of PNF 3
  3. Testing procedures: Written test, practical test and patient demonstration of 10-15 minutes. Minimum score of each test must be 66%
  4.  The participant may not miss more than 4 hours of the course. If participants miss more than

Recommended reading: Please check with each individual course organizer to determine if the IPNFA instructor has a reading list

 

Note:  When you take a second PNF 3 course (as a PNF3B), kindly inform the IPNFA instructor so that they can plan the testing procedures appropriately.
