MAT Refresher Modules

Broadview College has collaborated with Muscle Activation Techniques(MAT) to deliver an online option for a MAT Practitioner’s to refresh their skills.

These refresher modules are designed for current MAT practitioners and MAT Mastery practitioners to continue to strengthen their Muscle Activation Techniques skills. These are 6-12 week, self-paced modules. Whether an individual module or the grouping of all, the outcome for students is to achieve stronger results with their skills as a certified MAT Specialist or MAT Mastery practitioner.
