Continuing Education Credits: Each participant may select sessions and keynotes to total of twelve and a half (12.5) hours to submit for approved credit. A post test will be made available for each session, and time will be allotted at the end of each session for completion of the post test. Recordings will remain open for four weeks following the close of the conference. Participants will receive specific communication via email as to how they may access these recordings as soon as they are made available. Certificates of completion will be delivered via email to participants once the required number of post tests have been collected from the participant.

Approvals: This course has been approved for 15 CMTEs. In order to receive full CMTE credits available (15 hours), participants must view 12.5 hours of recordings (any combination of sessions and keynotes) and complete and electronically submit all post tests by Midnight GMT, March 4, 2018.

OCMT will not offer less than 15 hours of CMTE hours. If participants choose to complete more than the approved number of credit hours, each participant must take primary responsibility for submitting any additional hours to CBMT (including proof of attendance and learning, if audited). In submitting this opportunity to CBMT, you will identify your participation in the OCMT as educational activity, as opposed to a conference.

International participants seeking continuing education hours will receive the same certificate as those with CBMT membership along with a letter of explanation describing the process of calculation and offering contact information to address additional questions.

Please contact us directly for more info. (Access to recordings will still only be available until Midnight GMT on March 4, 2018.)

Continuing Music Therapy Education Information

The Online Conference for Music Therapy (OCMT) is a virtual meeting through which music therapists from around the world can learn and interact. This conference is presented in a 24 hour live format through an online platform. Each session will be recorded and will be made available to all participants following the live session for viewing at their convenience. Each participant may select sessions and keynotes to total of twelve and one half (12.5) hours to submit for approved credit (15 CMTEs). Attendance can include synchronous viewing (watching the presentations live) or asynchronous viewing (watching the recording at a later time).

A post test will be made available via a dedicated electronic platform, and time will be allotted at the end of each presentation session for completion (this includes keynote speakers). Recordings will remain open for four weeks following the close of the conference. Participants will receive specific communication as to how they may access these recordings as soon as they are made available. Remaining sessions (including post tests) may be submitted to CBMT as self-study hours following the procedures described in the Recertification Handbook found at www.cbmt.org.

Certificates of completion will be delivered electronically once the required number of post tests have been collected. Attendance and completion of presentation viewing may be subject to verification through the OCMT user platform. The conference software generates a list of users who have accessed recorded information and who attended the synchronous presentation. The completion of post tests will offer additional proof of attendance as information on how to access the post tests will be made available during each presentation.

Registration for the 2018 conference is now closed.
