The MTAA Professional Development (PD) Program maintains the highest standards in the province and requires that all courses be evaluated and approved by the MTAA Competence Committee before education credits can be awarded.
As of January 1, 2022, the MTAA has revised the requirements to have a course evaluated to obtain MTAA approval. To ensure you have all of the required information, please see the MTAA Course Evaluation Requirements below.
Please be advised that there is a $50 plus GST fee to submit a course for evaluation. Approved courses will expire after 3 years and require renewal. One submission per course is required. After the 3-year approval period has expired, course instructors and facilitators can apply for one 3-year renewal so long as all renewal requirements have been met. After a course renewal has expired, the MTAA requires that the full course be re-evaluated by the Competence Committee for each course.
The MTAA will only accept complete submissions for each course to be reviewed by the Competence Committee. Refunds are not provided for any course that may be turned down.
The MTAA evaluates courses that are held online, in-person, or live online. We considered live online courses to be equivalent to in-person courses. This is because the course content that is being shared with students live online which gives ability for the instructors and students to interact. We consider online course to be those where a student learns at their own pace.
To submit a course for evaluation, please click the button below to complete the online MTAA Course Evaluation Form. All requirements must be met in order for a course to be evaluated. If additional information needs to be submitted after completing this online form, all details can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The MTAA requires that course facilitators submit information to confirm their education and background, specific course information as well as all contraindications and safety precautions taught in the course. This is required to ensure that facilitators offering continuing education hold valid membership with their regulatory college (or professional association where unregulated) for their designation. The MTAA has negotiated with our insurer to provide MTAA members with free liability coverage for most techniques and modalities, so we must ensure that the instructors meet our minimum standards of training before we can deem a course “MTAA APPROVED”.
In order to submit a course for evaluation the following information must be submitted:
