Do not agree PT do dry needling because they don’t get enough training about points and everything.

Needles can be only done by acupuncturist because they are trained for 5 years as a doctor and they have learned everything to be a doctor not only how to use needles. To be safe and to be more effective to patients, dry needles is the other way using needles should not be done by anybody else except acupuncturist.
