The American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) offers a wide variety of continuing education opportunities for massage therapists, including online courses and hands-on regional and national workshops.
We take several steps to ensure our education meets the highest standards. So you can rest assured knowing you are learning quality information and skills to advance your massage therapy practice.
Rigorously Vetted Massage Therapy Continuing Education
AMTA is one of the few providers that seeks pre-approval from state licensing boards on all CE courses offered. We go the extra mile to help you meet your state licensing needs.
AMTA is also a National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) approved provider, demonstrating a commitment to excellence in the massage therapy profession.
These two processes ensure that AMTA is offering the highest-quality education available.
Continuing education requirements vary for massage therapy licensing. Check with your regulatory board to confirm your specific continuing education needs.
AMTA CE: Designed for Massage Therapists by Massage Therapists
AMTA continuing education is designed for massage therapists by massage therapists. This means AMTA uses member feedback and evaluations to regularly review and improve our course portfolio.
In addition, AMTA works with trusted educators to provide top quality CE. Several education operational committees composed of your peers in the profession are continually providing input on programming to ensure the most innovative learning experiences.
