PLEASE NOTE: This course is not preapproved by the AMTA Association Internship Approval Committee as a substitute for the course offered by that committee. If you are seeking approval to become a National Roster Internship Director, you will need to submit the entire course outline as well as your certificate to the committee for review. Musictherapyworks.com does not guarantee that this course will be accepted as an alternate course by the AMTA Association Internship Approval Committee, but the instructor will submit additional information to the committee on your behalf, if requested.
