MMT Requirements for International Students
We appreciate that you are making the effort to get your Master Myoskeletal Therapist certification.
We have had a lot of therapists outside of the United States who have been working hard to complete their certification. One of the obstacles is getting the required 50 hours of practical hands-on training. We do offer some classes outside of the USA in Australia, the UK, the EU, Bulgaria, Singapore and other places.
To help you out, we’ve made the following changes to MMT certification requirements for those located outside of the United States:
- We require that international students complete a minimum of 30 hours of practical training in-person workshops with Erik Dalton or one of his educators. The easiest way to get the 30 hours of practical training is at Erik Dalton’s annual Costa Rica workshop (30 CE)
- In the event that you can only do 24 hours of practical training in-person workshops, we recommend taking Aubrey Gowing’s 24hr CE live or virtual workshop and for the additional 6CE hours you may complete the online eCourse “Solving Today’s Pain & Injury Puzzle” (6CE). This six-hour course is a recording of an actual workshop, with practice time built in.
- In place of any remaining 20 hours of practical training in-person workshops, you may complete a combination of the following online eCourses or home study courses:
Of course, attending live workshops where you can receive coaching and personal feedback from Erik or one of his educators is always preferred. However, we hope these new guidelines make MMT certification more feasible for those of you who cannot travel to a live event. If you have additional questions, please contact Kim Miller.
