Our teachers:
expertly qualified, active throughout the world

Highest standard of teacher training.

It takes about five to eight years to complete the training required to be an IMTA teacher. It includes a minimum of 24 weeks attending IMTA courses as well as methodology and didactics training. Once the applicant has attained an IFOMT-recognised OMT qualification and successfully completed the teacher training course, he/she is eligible to go forward to the final exams. The final exams include written work, patient treatment, a presentation and comprehensive technical examinations.

All assistants and all IMTA teachers undertake to carry out a significant amount of hours of clinical work each year using the Maitland® Concept. This is in addition to their normal teaching activities. Our quality management system also guarantees that our teachers undergo constant further training, thus ensuring that our tuition remains of the highest quality in our courses.
