The majority of online massage training course providers in the USA is aimed at so-called Continuing Education. Continuing education is most of the time mandatory for massage therapists active in the U.S., which means they need to continue studying a certain number of hours throughout their practitioning careers to be able to keep their massage therapy license.
Depending on the U.S. State a therapist practices in, a certain number of Continuing Education Units (CEU) is needed to be obtained in a certain amount of time, let’s say every year or every two or four years, and so on. Moreover, these CEUs handed out by a course provider need to be valid, that is, legally accredited by, for instance the NCBTMB (National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage), a certain U.S. State Board of Massage Therapy, and so on.
Online CEU massage training is of course very practical: it saves time for the therapists (he or she doesn’t need to go physically to a course or workshop), it’s an easy way to learn something new or different, or by contrast to dive deeper into one’s own specialty. And, not unimportant, it often also saves money because online CEU massage courses are generally cheaper than live in-person training.
In any case, in this post we’ve made a selection of 15 CEU Online Massage Course Providers in the USA. Below the list.
