ED X-Waiver Training Corps

ED X-Waiver

We are thrilled to announce that ACEP [in partnership with Providers Clinical Support System (PCSS) will be holding multiple Medications for Addiction Treatment (MAT) X-Waiver (DEA DATA 2000) trainings this fall and in early 2021. These are free, virtual, live trainings done through the Zoom platform. Though this curriculum is developed by Emergency Medicine physicians, you do not need to be an ER physician to take this training. All doctors, APRNs, PAs and medical students are welcome. Primary care and hospitalists are a key target for this offering as well.

To prescribe buprenorphine, one of three medications approved by the FDA for the treatment of opioid use disorder:

  • Physicians require 8 hours of training to apply to the Drug Enforcement Agency for a waiver
  • Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRN) (NP/CNM/CNS/CRNA) must complete 24 hours of specialized training (this includes 8 hours of MAT waiver training and an additional 16 hours of training)
  • Physician Assistants must complete 24 hours of specialized training (this includes 8 hours of MAT waiver training and an additional 16 hours of training
  • Medical students are eligible for this course and can apply for their DEA X-waiver once they have obtained their own DEA medical license.

Attendees who sign up for this training will attend a live, 4 hour virtual zoom webinar via computer taught by clinical experts. Once completed, participants will receive the second half of the course – a 4 hour online self-study portion. At the end of the course, participants are required to pass an exam with a 75% or higher before their 8 hours will be considered complete. For APRNs and PAs this option fulfills the first 8 hours out of the 24 hour requirement. The course completion certificate does not expire.
