Authorized MBC Trainers

The following is the complete list of authorized MBC instructors and study group leaders. It includes all instructors and study group leaders who have ever been officially authorized to share MBC. Instructors claiming to teach MBC, CBC, or their related systems who are not included on this list have not been formally recognized or endorsed by MBC or Michael Janich.

Please note that some people on this list, although fully authorized, do not actively teach MBC or have chosen not to maintain currency in it. To find an instructor or study group leader near you who is actively sharing MBC and is maintaining an up-to-date skill set, please refer to the MBC Instructor Locator on the Contact page of this web site.
