Advanced Massage Techniques, Inc. is approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) as a continuing education Approved Provider. Provider #451043-09

It is my current understanding that the NCBTMB requires 48 CE hours every 4 years for National Certification renewal. Of the 48 hours of continuing education, 6 hours must include a study in ethics (including two (2) hours in Standard V: Roles and Boundaries). An HIV/AIDS course is not considered an ethics course. All 48 CE hours may be taken in an online or home study format.
