Contract (receive payment) with the Commonwealth to provide instructional services
Separate from the instructor certification process is the process by which the MPTC pays some instructors to provide training. This requires the instructor to enter into a contract with the Commonwealth to provide instructional services.
- The instructor's contract must be approved prior to commence instructional services to receive compensation for the services rendered.
