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 day period) from an MAT® course of instruction per year.  The current tuition ranges from $425 to $549 for these courses.
