Online PTA Programs
If you require more flexibility with your studies and the option to study on evenings or at the weekends then you could consider an online program. However it is worth advising that the majority of time spent studying to become a PTA is actually spent in clinical work practice and not in a classroom environment. So whilst you might be able to complete the academic element of your studies with some flexibility you will still need to present for workplace experience.
