MMTIC® Online Certification

MMTIC® results give educators, counselors, administrators, and students valuable insight into differences in how they learn and engage in healthy social interactions. MMTIC Certification is the first step toward helping young people do their best in school and in life.

Program Overview

The Murphy-Meisgeier Type Indicator for Children® (MMTIC®) is an assessment that was developed to measure psychological type preferences in children and young people from the ages of 7 to 18.

Understanding the meaning of type preferences enhances personal growth, regardless of age, but is especially important for young people who are at the threshold for learning how they can be all they can be within the natural framework of who they are.

Educators, counselors, consultants, and administrators who want to learn about psychological type and how to use the MMTIC tool with students are required to successfully complete the MMTIC Certification training program, which is offered in two formats: this online program and an in-person, classroom session. In both cases the first step is to fill out the Professional Requirements form. You will be notified of your eligibility by email.

Once you have successfully completed the program, you will be able to teach children, as well as the adults who care about them, such important skills as how to

  • Develop strategies for more effective learning
  • Appreciate the strength that results from diversity
  • Enhance the ability to bridge misunderstandings
  • Find fulfillment through the activities they enjoy, and the self-discipline they need to complete tasks that are less desirable for them

The course contains four learning modules that include the following content:

The Developing Child: Using Jungian Type to Understand Children by Elizabeth Murphy, Ed.D. This book is required reading for the program. Dr. Murphy is the co-author of the MMTIC assessment and is considered a world class expert on using psychological type with children. She is both a licensed psychologist and a licensed specialist in school psychology.

The Basics of Type provides an overview of the theory of psychological type and describes the eight preference scales in detail. The dynamic nature of the preferences is also addressed here.

Nuts and Bolts contains practical and concrete information related to the process of administering the MMTIC® Assessment and verifying type. It includes information on why advance preparation is so important and also provides key resources designed to support future efforts in delivering type feedback.

Completing the Picture brings important information about psychological assessments and their use together, including: the important aspects of scoring, and the validity and reliability of the questionnaire.

Content Delivery

The course content is electronically presented, either as a PDF download or e-reader file, or a printed workbook to read and study on your own. You will use the online course interface to track your progress, access resource materials, watch videos, and take the exams required for each module.
