NCBTMB Revamping CE Provider List

As reported in Massage Today, the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) has 1700 approved providers for continuing education (CE). In order to serve an evolving profession, they are planning to revamp their provider list.

From NCBTMB Chair Alexa Zaledonis:
Our goal is to assure appropriate learning opportunities whether the practitioner is a recent graduate, practicing professional or seeking advanced skills. This stratification is important as we prepare to introduce an advanced practice examination.

Advanced Practice Certification is being developed for practitioners who want to attain the education and experience that will be required in order to join conventional and integrative healthcare teams. Increasingly, the medical profession will look to advanced massage certification credentials to identify practitioners who will provide evidence-based treatment plans that enhance patient health outcomes.
