AMT strongly advocates lifelong learning as part of a member's personal and professional growth, and in fact requires its newer members, through the Certification Continuation Program (CCP), to acquire a specific number of points in continuing education (CE), or other acceptable avenues, in order to maintain certification. AMT offers a variety of educational opportunities for its members, including those listed below.
AMT also offers AMTraxTM -- the new online tracking system that helps members easily track the points they have acquired over time. AMTrax is totally paperless and provides you with 24/7 access to your profile. (Click here) to find out more about AMTrax.
1. STEP Online
STEP Online is a continuing education program keyed to scholarly articles, which appear in the Journal of Continuing Education Topics & Issues. The Journal is published three times a year (January, April and August). Each article includes a short test which can be submitted for manual scoring or taken online through AMT’s website. The same articles and tests are available to all AMT members on AMT website along with past articles and tests. The Journal is mailed to all current AMT-certified members as a membership benefit.
