Continuing education and keeping current are important to your massage therapy career and your professional success. Acquiring continuing education (CE) hours is necessary to maintain your Professional membership and for national certification, and it is required by many states. AMTA works hard to encourage life-long learning for our members, to support your professional growth and keep you and your practice competitive in a rapidly changing marketplace.
We want to remind all members that beginning with the first full year of AMTA Professional membership, members are required to complete 48 clock hours of CE every four years to retain active Professional membership. We encourage you to login to amtamassage.org and click on "My Credentials." You can verify what you have submitted and update your CEs to stay current.
Please note, if your record includes an active national certification number, the system may display 48 credit hours in addition to your reported CE hours.AMTA CE Resources Available for You
