- Residents may take the course and apply for their waiver when they receive their DEA license. They will need to maintain their certificate of completion following the training.
- Nurse practitioners (NPs) and physician assistants (PAs) who take this 8-hour MAT waiver course will receive a certificate of completion and can apply it toward the 24-hour training requirement established by the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA). For the additional 16 hours, PCSS-MAT is also providing NPs and PAs with the coursework FREE and together they meet the required training to be eligible to apply for the waiver to prescribe buprenorphine.
- This course has been approved by the NH Board of Medicine as CME that fulfills the opioid prescribing competency requirement.
