Certificate of Excellence in Assessment

The Certificate of Excellence in Assessment is designed to ensure that Massage Therapists remain current with respect to the competencies of assessment as they continue to evolve over time. This certificate elevates the standard of care Massage Therapists provide to their clients. The primary objective of the program is to promote highest quality continuing education programs and to validate the credibility of knowledge of massage therapists. It enables Massage Therapists to base their practices on the most recent and strongest evidence necessary to produce quality patient outcomes.

"I believe these courses have greatly contributed to me developing the advanced skills and experience to become a great therapist.
