    I'm taking the PTR teaching essentials test this weekend. I was looking for any tips/experiences to know what to expect. Anything you wish you worked on more/anything you wasted to much time on? Anything...???

    If you are worried about being asked what your PTR level rating is by a potential student, I wouldn't. I have had my USPTA for over a year now, and no one has asked me that question. I talked with an other USPTA pro the other day, he has been certified for over 20 years, he said he thought he had only been asked that question twice.

    Casual question, how often do you get to teach a week? Before being sidelined for a few months because of heal, I was able to teach over 12 hours a week, I hope to reach that again.
