  • Have successfully completed an NMT Institute Training
  • Properly represent the practice of NMT

  1. Music therapy students cannot carry the NMT designation or practice NMT until they have attained MT-BC status or the appropriate certification or credential in music therapy in another country.
  2. The five-year duration for Fellowship participation begins at the date of professional credential receipt.
