Note: The cost of each e-course purchase entitles one individual to participate in and complete the e-course for CMTE credit. If a course is being purchased for multiple individuals, it must be purchased separately for each participant.  CMTE, ethics, and/or LCAT credits available are indicated next to each course below.  If a course does not say it provides these credits, then it is not eligible.

All continuing education course participants may file a grievance if they disagree with the receipt/non-receipt of Continuing Music Therapy Education (CMTE) credits for their participation in any continuing education opportunity for which CMTE credits are offered.  To report a grievance, contact the e-course manager (for e-courses), conference director (for conference activities), or a member of the national office staff with a clear and concise description of the concern and stated desired outcome within 60 days of the completion of the CMTE credit opportunity.  The AMTA CEO will be notified and a response will be sent within 90 days. All participants have the right to have their grievance addressed by the Continuing Education Committee of CBMT in the event that the Approved Provider's Grievance Procedure is exhausted should the grievance be unresolved.

Each conference presentation proposal goes through an anonymous review process. Reviewers include clinicians, educators, and researchers from all regions of AMTA with a variety of expertise including specializations in research and in diversity, equity and inclusion.  Presenters are chosen based on relevant qualifications, credentials, and expertise relative to the subject matter. All presenters for special courses for conference and e-courses must submit a curriculum vita which will be kept on file.  In the event of courses that are based on research articles from the Journal of Music Therapy or Music Therapy Perspectives, the qualifications of authors are collected during the research article submission process.
