MTAI Certification Interviews- September 6 & 7, 2017
Interviews will be held in Spokane, WA in conjunction with the Annual MTAI Conference
September 06, 2017
We welcome applications for MTAI certification after candidates have completed all of the minimum requirements listed in the 120’s of the Standards and Competencies. These requirements include the completion of music-thanatology training, including completing the research paper/project, completion of clinical training including fifty supervised vigils under a certified music-thanatologist with written narratives and participation in clinical reviews, and demonstrated proficiency of basic shared thematic pieces of music.
Only those with complete applications (both the first and second packets) received by the stated deadlines will be eligible for interviews. Applications are complete only after all materials are received and determined to be complete by the Certification Team, and after your certification fee has been paid. It is advisable for all candidates (and in particular for candidates needing to make travel arrangements to your interview) to submit your application well in advance of the deadline to allow time for your application to be reviewed and, if needed, for you to submit additional materials. Submitting materials in advance of the deadline would also ensure some extra leeway for you in case unexpected delays occur. The deadlines established are firm. If your materials are not complete by the deadlines established, please submit your materials to us when you are able, with the understanding that you will be considered for the next interview cycle.
Submitting your application by the deadline is not a guarantee that you will be able to interview during your selected timeframe. We will have a maximum of four certification interviews each interview weekend and will fill the spots on first-come, first-served basis, based on when applications are determined to be complete by the Certification Team.
For the September 6-7 interviews, the deadline for the first packet will be May 5, 2017 and the deadline for the second packet will be June 16, 2017.
