WHEN SHOULD I GET A PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIP?

Each state has different requirements. Let us help you figure out what you need to do to have everything in order. Please call us at 800-458-2267 about any of these scenarios—our membership team are experts at helping! Here are the questions to ask yourself:

AM I IN A STATE THAT REQUIRES LIABILITY INSURANCE BEFORE I GET MY LICENSE?

Certain states require that you have proof of liability insurance before you can get your license, and some don’t. See what your state’s requirements are here.

AM I READY TO PRACTICE PROFESSIONALLY ACCORDING TO THE LAWS OF MY STATE?

If you have your license and are ready to start getting paid for bodywork, now is the perfect time to upgrade to a membership with professional liability insurance. If you’re still waiting for your license to arrive, you have a few options:

1) Get ABMP Exam Coach Plus with ABMP Five-Minute Muscles now to start a payment plan for your professional membership and keep your knowledge fresh;

2) Upgrade to ABMP Professional or Certified membership for full access to ABMP member discounts (like massage tables and other supplies). Keep in mind that if you upgrade before receiving your license, your liability insurance will not be active until we can add your licensing information to your membership account;

3) You can wait to upgrade and continue to log in to your student account to access your graduate resources.

WHAT IF I’M IN A STATE THAT HAS VOLUNTARY CERTIFICATION, OR NO STATE REGULATION?

If you’ll be working in a state that has voluntary certification, you can upgrade to an ABMP Practitioner membership, which includes liability insurance. You can find out about your state’s requirements here. Please call us at 800-458-2267 for specific information about upgrading in these states.
