DEA Training Requirements

Prescribers who are either renewing or applying for a new controlled substance DEA registration are required to complete 8-hours of SUD training due to the Medication Access and Training Expansion (MATE) Act.

Michigan Opioid Collaborative’s previous and upcoming free trainings and webinars will meet the new DEA SUD training requirements. Check out our events page for our upcoming events and look for the ones that say “Meets DEA SUD Training Requirements” or “DEA Training”.
