For Providers
One-time training requirement now available for all DEA-registered providers

A new one-time, eight-hour training requirement is now available for all DEA-registered providers.

New legislation under the Medication Access and Training Expansion Act, now requires any prescriber renewing to attest to completion of the training and goes into effect on Tuesday, June 27. All other renewals after June 27 will also be required to complete the training prior to the time of the renewal of their DEA license. 

Once you have completed the training, you don’t need to do so for future registration renewals. If you have already completed eight hours of training in the required topic, you do not need to complete another eight hours to satisfy the MATE Act.



Ways to complete the training

Several CME modules are available here.
