General Student Instructions
Q: How do I access the SCAPTP Training Site Directory?
A: The SCAPTP Training Site Directory is hosted on PracticumFit. You will need either a Directory Viewer Login or a personal account to view the directory.
Your school administrator can provide you with your program’s Directory Viewer login information.
Your directory view is filtered to only those sites which have been approved for you by your school program.
Q: How do I access my PracticumFit account?
A: Students need to be invited fresh each year to log in to PracticumFit. Your DCT (Director of Clinical Training) or another administrator at your school will invite you to participate, usually in January or February. If you had an account last year, you won’t be able to access it until you are invited again for the current match cycle.
Q: Should I activate a PracticumFit account if I’m waiting to hear about a position my school arranged for me at a captive site?
A: No. If you are in the running for a captive position, you should wait to activate your a PracticumFit account until you know whether the captive site has accepted you. Once you confirm that you are NOT matched with a captive site, and you need to enter the general SCAPTP Match, then you should activate your account on PracticumFit.
Q: Should I use a special browser or device to access PracticumFit?
A: Mobile, tablet, or desktop devices should be compatible with PracticumFit. We recommend using Chrome or Safari browsers to access the platform.
