Become a PEDro rater

PEDro is unique. All randomised controlled trials indexed on PEDro are independently quality-rated by trained PEDro raters.

All potential PEDro raters complete the PEDro training program on how to use the PEDro Scale. The program is an online course offered via a 3-month subscription and takes about 2 to 3 hours to complete. The training program is self-paced and includes video tutorials and examples. There is an accuracy test for using the PEDro Scale at the end of the training program. After successful completion of the accuracy test, people are invited to be a PEDro rater. More information about the program can be found at:

The cost of the training program is A$50. You can contact if you have a special circumstance that requires consideration of this cost.
