What Others Are Saying
MMOA has helped to set me free to practice OT using the full scope of our practice!
It’s vastly changed how I treat not only my older adults, but my entire population. Strength training has become an essential foundation in my practice with even more specificity than before. I have had patients tell me they are feeling stronger, recovering better when losing their balance, and going back to life with no limitations!
The Cert-MMOA has brought my clinical practice to the next level. I am always striving to better myself as a clinician for my patients, and this cluster of courses has catapulted me to the next level and beyond! I am grateful for the knowledge, skills, and community that this program has created.
As an older adult fitness trainer in private practice, the Cert-MMOA material has been invaluable to me and helped me fill in many gaps in my knowledge & skills. I have the highest respect for physical therapists, so from the moment I first heard of the MMOA courses, I knew I wanted to take them all and become Cert-MMOA. It has been a lot of work, time and money, but SO worth it! It’s super important to me to be able to interact and learn from such knowledgeable like-minded professionals.
It has given me the confidence to treat this population and avoid underdoing them out of fear. Lead me to search for a job that I can apply these principles 100% of the time. Treating the WHOLE patient and focusing more on wellness side of this job. Reinvigorated my passion in my career.
