Certificate programs

Value of a Certificate Program

A certificate program provides a mechanism to demonstrate knowledge and competence in a specialized 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. Each program consists of a didactic and a clinical component. Candidates having successfully met the eligibility requirements may register for the clinical component.

The certificate programs do not certify an individual to work as a MRT in Canada. See the Certification section of the website for more information on how to become certified in Canada.
