Are you an NCBTMB Board Certified Massage Therapist (NBCMT)? If so, you are likely aware that you need to renew your certification status every two years.
NCBTMB Board Certified Renewal Requirements
To renew your NCBTMB Board Certified status, NCBTMB requires that you complete 24 hours of Continuing Education classes every two years. Three hours of the 24 hours must be in ethics. Three hours of the 24 hours must be in research. No more than 4 hours of the 24 hours may be in self-care. All NCBTMB CEs can be taken through home study or online courses through the Institute of Somatic Therapy, provider #280672-00.
AMTA and ABMP require that you take 48 hours of Massage Therapy CEs every four years. Both Massage Therapy agencies allow all CEs to be taken through online courses through the Institute of Somatic Therapy.
$100 Discount on NCBTMB Board Certified Renewal Package
The Institute of Somatic Therapy offers a special package designed specifically for massage therapists who are ready to renew their NCBTMB Board Certification. The package is made up of four courses, including
- Research – Reflexology (3 CEs)
- Ethics – Communication (3 CEs)
- Pathology – Deep Vein Thrombosis (2 CEs)
- Fibromyalgia – Stop The Suffering (16 CEs)
These four courses, if taken individually, would have a total tuition of $209, but with the special coupon provided on our course description page, you save $100.
With each of these massage therapy CEU courses, you earn an individual certificate of completion dated the date you complete the online test. Therefore, you can “straddle” your renewal periods by completing some of the courses now, and the remainder of the courses once your new renewal period begins. This is especially helpful for massage therapists who are licensed in a state jurisdiction where CEUs are required on a different timetable than their national renewal. All courses must be completed within one year of enrollment.
