MAT Specialist Modules

Broadview College has collaborated with Muscle Activation Techniques® (MAT®) to deliver an online, module based pathway towards MAT® Certification.

These 12 week, self-paced modules conclude with a required, exam prep and certification exam at MAT Headquarters in Denver, CO or Toronto, Canada. All online coursework must be successfully completed to attend the exam prep and test for certification.

Course Descriptions

Our MAT module curriculum is developed by industry professionals in order to equip you with in-demand skills. You will even participate in hands-on, in person exam prep so you will have hands-on experience before you graduate.

Cost: $4,200



Prerequisite:
 Participants must be a licensed therapist, or must obtain undergraduate coursework in anatomy and physiology and/or hold a recognized fitness certification with a minimum of two years of experience as a fitness professional.

The objective: The Muscle Activation Techniques® lower body certification module will provide an understanding of the MAT® skillset to Participants who have knowledge in the health and fitness field. This lower body module studies the MAT® approach to assessment and correction of muscular imbalances in the human body. Participants are trained on the MAT® tools used to identify restrictions in joint instability relating to muscle tightness and weakness. Participants gain an understanding of the unique systematic format provided through Muscle Activation Techniques® in order for them to help their clients function with maximum efficiency and balance out the muscular system.

Cost: $4,200



Prerequisite:
 Participants must be a licensed therapist or have been certified in the MAT® Lower Body.

The objective: Participants will be introduced to Muscle Activation Techniques® for the upper body and explore the relationship of muscle function to joint stability, relating to joint mobility. Participants will evaluate range of motion in upper body movements and use the assessments to identify areas of muscle weakness with a focus on the shoulder girdle. Study includes applications of isolated muscle strength testing, palpation of muscle attachment points along with corrective isometrics, and reinforcement exercises. Participants will investigate Muscle Activation Techniques for the upper body and examine the relationship of muscle function to joint stability, relating to joint mobility. Participants will evaluate range of motion in upper body movements and use the assessments to identify areas of muscle weakness.



Further study includes
 applications of isolated muscle strength testing, including break testing and neuroproprioceptive response testing; palpation of muscle attachment points along with corrective isometrics; and reinforcement exercises.

Successful completion of the exam prep, and passing the certification exam at the lab, will allow participants to become certified in MAT® upper body techniques.

Prerequisite
 Participants must be a licensed therapist or have been certified in the MAT® Lower Body.

The objective: Participantswill investigate Muscle Activation Techniques® for the trunk and spine and explore the relationship of muscle function to joint stability, relating to joint mobility. Participants will evaluate range of motion in movements of the trunk and spine and use the assessments to identify areas of muscle weakness in the trunk and spine.



Further study includes
 applications of isolated muscle strength testing, palpation of muscle attachment points along with corrective isometrics, and reinforcement exercises. This course will provide information for participants to learn the complexities of the trunk and spine muscular systems to help practitioner’s better address muscle dysfunction in these areas.

Successful completion of the pre-lab module, the exam prep, and passing the certification exam, will allow participants to become certified in MAT Trunk and Spine.

Cost: $4200

 



Prerequisite
 Participants must have obtained certification in two MAT® online modules or be a licensed therapist with a minimum of one MAT® online module certification.

The objective: Participants will investigate Muscle Activation Techniques® for the cervical spine, hand and foot. They will explore the relationship of muscle function to joint stability, relating to joint mobility. Participants will evaluate range of motion in movements of the cervical spine, hand and foot, and will use the assessments to identify areas of muscle weakness. Further study includes applications of isolated muscle strength testing, palpation of muscle attachment points along with corrective isometrics, and reinforcement exercises. Participants gain an understanding of the unique systematic format provided through Muscle Activation Techniques® in order for them to help their clients function with maximum efficiency and balance out the muscular system.

Participants will review and gain a better understanding of the importance of the evaluation and assessment process in their MAT practice. Participants will also gain an understanding on how to stress the body in order to duplicate the stresses that may result in recurring injuries.



Successful completion
of the pre-lab module, the required exam prep, and passing the certification exam, will allow participants to become certified in MAT® Cervical, Hand and Foot certified.

What You Need To Know

Registration is $4,200 per module. In addition, participants will be responsible for purchasing their text book and responsible for travel and accommodations to attend the exam prep and certification exam.

2-day certification labs require a minimum of 10 participants. In the event of low enrollment, registrants will have the opportunity to schedule the next available certification lab.

Suggested completion time is 12 weeks. However, those with advanced training and education in a related field and/or those with significant time to study may be able to complete the module more quickly. All participants are required to have successfully completed and passed the online training portion prior to attending the required exam prep and test for certification.
