I am pleased to announce that Tellington TTouch Training, Inc. is now approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) as a continuing education Approved Provider.
The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) is an independent, private, nonprofit organization that was founded in 1992 to establish a certification program and uphold a national standard of excellence. Today, there are nearly 90,000 nationally certified massage therapists and body-workers safely and competently serving millions of Americans each year. The mission of the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) is to define and advance the highest standards in the massage therapy and bodywork profession. This organization offers Continuing Education classes in (includes both) human and animal massage and related fields. Although we can give CE’s for Animal related classes, please check with your State as to the laws about Massage Therapists being able to work on animals legally in your home state. Being recognized by NCBTMB will qualify our CE’s to be recognized by most Human body-work organizations and by those who offer body-work training for animals, please check with your governing organization to be sure that they recognize Continuing Education Credits from Approved Provider of the NCBTMB.
