Student Membership
- Student Membership A student member is defined as a person currently enrolled full time in any educational institution or is actively enrolled in a certification program designed to prepare the individual for certification as a Michigan Certified Assessment Technician (MCAT) or Michigan Certified Assessing Officer (MCAO).
