The instructor certification process is a dual-focused system by which MPTC verifies an instructor’s proficiency in both the subject matter and as an instructional trainer. To become certified, an Instructor Certification Application must be submitted and approved by MPTC. (Visit the MPTC Instructor Certification & Training link above to learn more about the instructor certification process and qualifications necessary to attend new instructor training.)
