APP in Movement Disorders Certification

AMDAPP is in the early stages of developing a certification for APPs in movement. We are partnering with the Professional Testing Corporation to guide this process.

There are three main phases: Job Task Analysis; Item Writing; and Pilot Testing, Revision, and Validation.

We are presently in the early stages of the Job Task Analysis.
