This training is part 7 of 8 for the training series that will provide APPs the additional 16 hours to meet the requirements to obtain a MAT Certificate
Advanced Practice Practitioners (APPs) must complete 24 hours of specialized training to obtain a waiver to prescribe buprenorphine—an eight-hour MAT waiver training course plus an additional 16 hours of training. Until now, the additional 16 hours has primarily been available through online, pre-recorded modules.
