MMTIC® Online Certification Program

Teaching Educators How to Use Type in Schools


MMTIC® RESULTS GIVE EDUCATORS, counselors, administrators, and students valuable insight into differences in how they learn and engage in healthy social interactions. MMTIC Certification is the first step toward helping young people do their best in school and in life.

The Murphy-Meisgeier Type Indicator for Children® (MMTIC®) is an assessment that was developed to measure psychological type preferences in children and young people from the ages of 7 to 18.

Understanding the meaning of type preferences enhances personal growth, regardless of age, but is especially important for young people who are at the threshold for learning how they can be all they can be within the natural framework of who they are. As a certified MMTIC practitioner you will have a unique opportunity to help young people become empowered though healthy self-understanding.


Who Can Use The MMTIC® Assessment?


Educators, counselors, consultants, and administrators who want to learn about psychological type and how to use the MMTIC tool with students are required to successfully complete the MMTIC® Online Certification training program. Prospective practitioners must be 21 years of age or older, have a four-year degree from an accredited college or university (if you studied outside the U.S. you will need an equivalent degree).

Parents who wish to present the MMTIC assessment to their children should do so through a certified MMTIC practitioner, or use CAPT's Take the MMTIC Online service.

The MMTIC assessment has been validated for native or fluent English speaking young people who are between the ages of 7 and 18 years old. The instrument should only be delivered to young people with a minimum of a second grade reading level in English. The MMTIC assessment should not be translated by the Facilitator for children who cannot read and understand the instrument on their own.
