Certificate programs

Value of a Certificate Program

A certificate program provides a mechanism to demonstrate knowledge and clinical competence in a specialized area of practice, promotes standards of excellence and represents a nationally recognized achievement.

Each program consists of pre-requisites, a didactic portion (coursework) and a clinical component (Summary of Clinical Competence or “SCC”). These comprehensive programs include a mix of courses, challenge exams, quick self-study modules, and/or virtual lectures and a clinical portion, which includes exams that must be completed under observation of an experienced advisor. These are optional post-graduate certificate programs, and candidates may choose to register for the clinical component once they’ve successfully met the eligibility requirements.

Please read the certificate overview and Handbook for the program that is of interest to you for more details, and reach out with any questions!

Please remember: *All* competencies in the SCC must be completed after you register for the certificate program.

Please note: These certificate programs do not certify an individual to work as an MRT in Canada. Please see the Certification section of the website for more information on how to become certified to work.
