How many (clock) hours is this course? *
Your answer
Number of CMTE Credits Offered *
One CMTE (continuing music therapy education) credit is equal to 50 minutes of interaction with the learning material. Sufficient depth and intensity of experience is considered essential to effective continuing education. Breaks, meals, registration, and other non-instructional time must be excluded from time calculated for CMTE credits. Courses must be a minimum of 3 CMTE credits (or 2 hours and 30 minutes in length). Always round down to the nearest full CMTE credit; no partial credits are permitted. For example, a course that involves 165 minutes of total instructional time would equal 3.3 50-minute credit hours. However, as partial credit is not granted, participants would earn 3 CMTE credits.
