Value of a Certificate Program
A certificate program provides a mechanism to demonstrate knowledge and competence in a special area of practice, promotes standards of excellence and identifies those who have met a high level of competence and a nationally recognized standard.
The programs provide an excellent opportunity for continuing professional development, a credential that is sought by employers, and a means to enhance credibility and accountability as a team member.
Certificate Programs are educational opportunities for MRTs to enhance theoretical and clinical skills. The certificate programs do not certify an individual to work as a MRT in Canada. Refer to the Certification section of the website for more information on how to become certified.
