MAT Specialist Online Modules

In partnership with Broadview University.

Muscle Activation Techniques(MAT) has partnered with Broadview University to deliver a module based pathway towards MAT Specialist Certification. 

These 12 week, self-paced modules conclude with the required, exam prep and certifying examination at the state of the art MAT Headquarters in Denver, CO. All online course work must be successfully completed to attend the practical exam for certification. Fill out the form below for more information.

Module Descriptions

Lower Body Module

The Lower Body Module teaches students the MAT approach to assessment and correction of muscular imbalances in the human body. Students are trained on the MAT tools used to identify restrictions in joint instability relating to muscle tightness and weakness. Participants gain an understanding of the unique systematic format provided through Muscle Activation Techniques in order for them to help their clients function with maximum efficiency and balance out the muscular system.

Upper Body Module

In the Upper Body Module, students will be introduced to Muscle Activation Techniques for the upper body and explore the relationship of muscle function to joint stability, relating to joint mobility. Students will evaluate range of motion in upper body movements and use the assessments to identify areas of muscle weakness with a focus on the shoulder girdle. Study includes applications of isolated muscle strength testing, stimulation of muscle attachment points along with corrective isometrics, and reinforcement exercises.

Trunk & Spine Module

In the Trunk & Spine module, students will evaluate a range of motion in movements of the trunk and spine and use the assessments to identify areas of muscle weakness in the trunk and spine. This includes application of isolated muscle strength testing, stimulation of muscle attachment points along with corrective isometrics, and reinforcement exercises. This course will provide information for participants to learn the complexities of the trunk and spine muscular systems to help practitioner’s better address muscle dysfunction.

Cervical, Hand & Foot Module

The Cervical, Hand/Foot Module teaches students to investigate Muscle Activation Techniques for the hand, foot and cervical spine. Students will evaluate range of motion in movements of the foot, hand, and cervical spine. They will use the MAT assessments (CAM and AMC&S) to identify areas of muscle weakness in the hand, foot and cervical spine. Further study includes applications of isolated muscle strength testing, stimulation of muscle attachment points along with corrective isometrics, and reinforcement exercises. 

A Few Things You SHould Know

  • Suggested completion time is 12 weeks. However, those with advanced training and education in a related field and/or those with significant time to study may be able to complete the module more quickly. All participants are required to have successfully completed and passed the online training portion prior to attending the required exam prep and test for certification. 
  • Students are required to cover their own travel and personal expenses to the Colorado MAT  facility, including but not limited to transportation (local travel expenses and/or airfare if applicable), meals, lodging if applicable, and other personal expenses.
  • Acceptance and successful progression through the MAT  coursework does not automatically ensure certification or licensure eligibility. Licensure requirements are determined within cities, counties, municipalities, and states. Students need to research local requirements to ensure compliance.
