Specialized Learning Options
When planning your convention education selections, look for the highlighted programs included in our health care track, teachers track and research track (sponsored by the Massage Therapy Foundation).
Some education sessions require specific participation materials. Please check the materials list included with the class descriptions (when provided by the speaker) before registering for your class selections. Hands-on courses are identified when possible. These courses have a cap on attendance in order to enrich the learning experience.
Continuing Education Credit
The American Massage Therapy Association is approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) as a continuing education Approved Provider.
All courses are submitted for state continuing education credit, if appropriate. View an up-to-date list of approvals by state. AMTA makes every attempt to present information that is beneficial to you and your massage therapy practice. Before practicing any new modalities or techniques, check with your state’s massage therapy regulatory authority to ensure they are within the state’s defined scope of practice for massage therapy.
Class attendance is monitored; requiring attendees to be seated no later than 15 minutes after the published start time and attend the entire session to receive credit. Learning outcomes will be assessed. Continuing education verification cards will be provided for your records. Member continuing education credits are posted to your transcript on AMTA's website.
Thanks to the Operational Committees who provide valuable input on the content of convention programming!
