About the Instructors

Will Crane, PT, DPT, OCS is an NPTE expert and is a respected speaker and educator in the field of physical therapy. Will provides useful information to students and clinicians alike and is an energetic clinician.

Dr. Crane started PT Final Exam in 2012 with the goal of providing excellent NPTE preparation courses in a compassionate and professional environment. Since then, Will has been involved in numerous university programs and has trained over 10,000 PT's and PTA's on the way.

Since then Dr. Crane has continued to practice as a PT and earn his Board-Certified Clinical Specialist in Orthopaedic Physical Therapy (OCS). Dr. Crane has lectured at numerous universities and been involved in PT advocacy.

I am a foreign-trained PT who graduated from the University of Liverpool, England in 2012. I began my therapy journey as a PTA in 2006 before returning to school to become a licensed Physical Therapist. I currently work clinically in an outpatient setting where I specialize in Amputee rehab. This population is awesome, from the runners to those who never thought they would walk again.

On the coaching side, I have been with PT Final Exam for almost 5 years. When you tune into my lectures you will see that I am a visual learner. I am dyslexic and find “normal” study very difficult to grasp. I have tried to develop ways to learn and remember difficult topics and put a different spin on it, with videos (I like to use my kids), pneumonics, and tables. I have used the PT Final Exam platform to coach live classes and university cohorts which has been a lot of fun. If you and your school want to go through boards together shoot me an email at [email protected] I can make that happen.

Being a foreign-trained PT, I have been through the long frustrating process that goes with transferring a license to the USA. I worked as a PT in England, then had to take a break for two and a half years while I gained additional credits and fulfilled everything I needed to sit for this exam. I had multiple attempts at this exam where I came close, but I just could not get that PASS score. I finally saw PASS and obtained my license after completing a term with PT Final Exam in 2015.

My aim is to give you as many “Ohh, I get it now” moments as I can and help you understand topics you may not have understood in the past, so when you sit for the exam you can be confident you will see PASS.

I am a Texas trained PTA who graduated from the Odessa College. I began my journey with my B.S. in Kinesiology from Texas A&M University, followed by teaching Elementary Physical Education for 4 years and group fitness classes at local gyms. I've always had a passion for teaching and physical therapy, and love combining those two to bring you the best understanding of commonly tested and misunderstood NPTE topics.

I believe there is not "one size fits all" to learning, and strive to bring you a variety of ways to approach difficult concepts and improve recall with mnemonics, visual demonstrations, and unique memorization tricks. My goal is to help you study smarter, and confidently sit down on exam day knowing you will succeed.

In our PT Live Online Crash Course, we combine the power of a hybrid synchronous/asynchronous model. This means that we have a series of live lectures combined with many hours of on-demand content. As you probably have noticed, most universities are beginning to adopt this model of coursework more effectively and efficiently deliver content.

In this course, we meet on a weekly basis. In these main coaching sessions, we go over PRACTICE QUESTIONS, case studies, and any student questions that may have arisen during the week.

Each crash course contains 3 live lectures with unlimited access to the recordings afterward.

“BEST REVIEW OUT THERE!!!! I cannot emphasize enough how amazing this course is! I did the “live” review and it truly was worth every penny! Will and the other instructors taught me how to study and helped with pointing out the highlights of the main topics which needed to be known for the test. On the PEAT I made a 608 and pulled off 713 on my first attempt on the NPTE! Do yourself a huge favor and enroll into this course! You won’t regret it!!!!”

"...Using PTFE as my main study source helped me score an 800 on my exam, and I don't think it was a coincidence. I have recommended PTFE to my classmates who are taking the July exam, and I recommend it to anyone reading this review as well!"

-Esther DPT
