How to Become an MBTI® Master Practitioner

When you become an MBTI® Master Practitioner you differentiate yourself from other professionals through a credential that validates your commitment to a deeper understanding of psychological type.

The process for becoming an MBTI® Master Practitioner allows you to apply as soon as you have successfully completed an MBTI® Certification Program. After your application has been accepted, you can begin to meet the advanced educational and experiential requirements.

You will also have access to a convenient online way of tracking your progress through the Professional Experience Log, a handy tool that allows you to enter and track the completed coursework and professional experience required for the MBTI® Master Practitioner credential.


Before applying to earn the MBTI® Master Practitioner credential, you must have successfully completed an approved MBTI® Certification Program.

Also accepted as a prerequisite is the successful completion of a Form M based MBTI® Qualification Program that was successfully completed prior to January 1, 2009.

Program Criteria

To earn the MBTI® Master Practitioner credential, you must complete and document the following:

  • A minimum of 40 hours of continuing education (1CE = 1 hr of training) in approved MBTI advanced training programs, classes, sessions, or workshops.

Your MBTI® Certification or Qualification class is a prerequisite to applying for the credential, and CEs from those programs may not be used as part of the Master Practitioner Credential Program's required 40 CE hours. There is no time limit on achieving your 40 hours of continuing education.
