Changes coming for online missionary training at select MTCs


For most new full-time missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the online, at-home portion of training will be reduced to just a single week of online training, following recent notice on adjustments to missionary training center schedules.

Currently, most new missionaries training in their native languages are online for the first week of three weeks, with the two subsequent weeks at an assigned MTC. Those learning foreign languages spend two weeks online in at-home MTC before completing their training at an assigned MTC.

Beginning May 1, the at-home portion of training will be just one week for missionaries beginning language training at the following missionary training centers:

  • Brazil MTC
  • England MTC
  • Mexico MTC
  • Peru MTC
  • Provo MTC

According to the Jan. 9 notice from the Missionary Department sent to stake, mission and district presidencies and bishoprics and branch presidencies, all missionaries assigned to these five MTCs—whether learning a new language or not—will complete one week of at-home training and then with proper visa and other travel documents, if required, report for on-site training.
