Why Train with MATA?
MATA provides a blended learning approach, meaning you are given a combination of comprehensive clinical knowledge units and practical hands-on training.
Delegates have access to MATA’s exclusive Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) where they are able to complete the majority of the theory elements of our courses and qualifications. The VLE is used for self-study aspects and all other aspects are covered in face to face sessions with your trainer as a group.
Once a sufficient level of theory has been covered, delegates are able to move on to the practical elements of the course. With no prior experience of injecting the product we know that the thought of a practical session can be quite daunting. Because of this we offer the opportunity to complete the first practical stage using cadaveric dissection on fresh frozen material. After that, delegates are able to progress on to volunteer patients. We understand that hands on experience is the best and quickest way to build your knowledge and confidence, that’s why we provide the opportunity to practice on both.
We believe we have found the perfect balance between keeping class sizes small, but large enough to maintain good interactions and encourage inspiring discussions. On a typical course practical we would enrol five to ten students, giving you the maximum hands on experience whilst still keeping the session lively and interactive.
MATA was established with the aim to improve industry legislation and standards. Because of this, our courses have been developed with the support and input from scientists and industry specialists. All of our qualifications are quality assured, recognised and monitored by the relevant regulatory bodies.
Upon completion of your MATA training you will receive a certificate which is recognised by all of the main insurance bodies.
