K-70 and rear (second) curtain sync.

this is my first question on this forum and my English is... 'some'.
I have a k-70d that I like a lot. I started to shoot portraits with off camera speedlights. I want to play with rear curtain sync at night. Is it possible with this camera? I can not find any information about this. Now I can connect this with Yongnuo 560iii or 660 flashes with 560-TX Controller (all without tt-l). Do I need p-ttl for this? The camera has 'slow' and 'trailing curtain' modes that work with buit-in flash, but not with the external manual flash.

I know with the Yongnuo YN585EX Speedlite you need P-TTL mode to get the rear sync capability as a remote slave, but not sure about the 560iii or 660. Do you have an owner's manual? You can probably google it and download a free PDF.
