Continuing Education Requirements

In order for students to have success with MAT® and to ensure that MAT® clients receive a consistent level of service, we require continual reinforcement in the application of skills involved in order to perform the techniques. Therefore, in order to maintain status as a Certified MAT® Specialist on the MAT® website and have access to MAT® marketing materials, practitioners are required to complete 16 hours of continuing education (usually over a 2 ½ day period) from an MAT® course of instruction per year.  Currently, these courses are only available through MAT® and are only taught in Denver, Colorado.  The current tuition ranges from $425 to $649 for these courses.  Under special circumstances, outside courses may be considered but must be pre-approved by MAT®.

Prospective MAT® Rx students are invited to this course based on these primary criteria:  Currently an Active MAT® Specialist, who has taken at least the Masters Foot Function and Wrist and Hand program in the past 24 calendar months and has been an active MAT® practitioner for over 24 months.
