Master of Trust Management Standards (MTMS)



MTMS


The Master of Trust Management Standards (MTMS) is an educational program for trustees that builds upon the key knowledge areas in FTMS and ATMS, a next step that challenges trustees to take a leadership role in their funds and update their skill sets.

Together, FTMS, ATMS and MTMS provide the ideal blend of knowledge, skill and experience needed for effective management of trusts. To get the most value out of this education, it is recommended that individuals leave enough time between each step on the path to practice and apply their classroom learning.

Earning Your MTMS Credential

To earn the MTMS Credential, you must meet the following program element requirements for both sessions.

Session A and Session B

  • Prework including a passing score (minimum 70% correct) on open-book, untimed, preprogram tests
  • Full attendance at both Session A and Session B, which involves a total of four days of classroom instruction. The program is sequential—Session A is a prerequisite for Session B, which means attendance at two separate offerings/locations.
  • A "satisfactory" participation score in group activities from instructors
  • A passing score (minimum 70% correct) on the online posttests for Session A and Session B. The posttests are open-book and include multiple-choice questions on the prereadings/prework, on-site slides, exercises, materials and postreadings.

 

Educational Program Directors, Bryan Zoran and Justin Held, introduce Canadian Trustee Education with the FTMS and ATMS Programs.

Why You Should Attend

The award of the MTMS credential is the culmination of your successful journey through the trustee/fiduciary education path!
It recognizes the commitment involved in completing the suite of trustee education programs (FTMS, ATMS, MTMS). These programs in total represent ten days of education and multiple assessments, including two capstone mock board meetings—fortified by your years of experience as a fiduciary/trustee.

Who Should Attend

MTMS is the next step for those who have earned an ATMS Certificate of Achievement. It is also recommended for those who are advanced-level appointed and elected multi-employer, public sector and corporate plan trustees/fiduciaries. MTMS is also for trustees/fiduciaries of all types of plans and trusts. See prerequisites.
