Distance Learning Resources for Massage Schools

With many schools having been forced into distance learning and states implementing new regulations, ABMP has created enhanced distance-learning resources for our free ABMP Student Life network, made these available to all ABMP School Members, and is providing free access options for those schools who aren't yet members.

All of the links below are accessible to ABMP School Members at www.abmp.com/members/school-home/distance-learning-resources. If you are not an ABMP School Member but would like temporary access to review the resources, or you are an ABMP School Member and need assistance, contact your ABMP School Liaison at education@abmp.com to set up your school access, schedule an online tour of the new resources, or share other ways the ABMP Education team can help you at this time.
