PTA in Weston, Florida

DaveMan,

About 72% of PTAs are women. There are some pros and cons to this in terms of workplace, drama, and environment. But when it comes to job opportunities, I can tell you that most places love hiring men (when they can get their hands on one). So you won't have ANY trouble getting a job.

I completely agree with the above comments.

It's a good paying career with only minimal education required.

Mustang,
I believe you are confusing PTA and PT. PTA definitely does NOT take 6-8 years of education.
