Your Accelerated Path to CMPT Certification

Posted by NAIOMT on Jan 9, 2019 7:36:14 AM

Did you know you can earn your CMPT certification in just one year? Really. After a cohort of PTs thrived in and successfully completed NAIOMT’s accelerated program in San Diego in 2018, we have decided to offer this opportunity again this year.  


Here’s what one participant had to say about last year’s program:

“I joined as a PT in my first couple years of practice, and the clinical reasoning skills I learned as well as the finessed treatment and assessment techniques have significantly improved my success and confidence.” -Julie Dunn


Our accelerated program is designed to help you get through NAIOMT classes quickly, conveniently, and at a significant discount, plus offers support and continuity from classmates and instructors throughout the year. Here are a few key highlights:

My lovely wife. I blame her for sparking my passion for dry needling. A little background on her will help. She’s a pediatric physical therapist, smart as a whip, and very skeptical of my manual techniques.  As I was completing my fellowship I was feeling pretty confident in my skills when she came to me with complaints of bilateral cervicothoracic junction and upper trapezius pain.
