To maintain your certification each year you need to complete 16 hours of approved Continuing Education Credits (CECs) and keep an updated copy of your liability insurance on file with MAT® at all times.

 

MAT® prefers that you take at least one MAT® Master level class per year.  In order to accommodate the busy schedules of our practitioners, MAT® only requires that you take one MAT® master level class at least every other year and supplement the alternate year with an MAT® Jumpstart or MAT® Specialist Program Module Weekend or an Online MAT® Specialist Refresher Course.  Please reference our MAT® Master Level course offerings to see the courses that you can take to fulfill your master level CEC’s for MAT®.
