Registering as a physiotherapist

If you want to register as a physiotherapist and you obtained your diploma more than 5 years ago, you must meet additional requirements. You can register if you meet the work experience requirement or the training requirement. These are the same requirements that apply to re-registration

Work experience requirement

Over a 5-year period, you must have worked 2,080 hours as a physiotherapist. Work experience will only count if it meets the requirements of the Physiotherapists’ Evaluation Framework [in Dutch].

More information on the work experience requirement.

Training requirement

If you are not working, or have not achieved the standard number of hours, you can still qualify for re-registration through training.
