ABMP Members Receive $100 Toward CETMB Application Fee

Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP) will sponsor $100 of the application fee for the Alliance for Massage Therapy Education (AFMTE) Certified Educator of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (CETMB) credential. It will be available to the first 50 ABMP members who apply for the new credential for therapeutic massage and bodywork educators, which is based on the AFMTE's Core Competencies describing the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that form the basis for effective and successful teaching.

“It’s not a certification of your content knowledge and practitioner skills; it’s a certification of your ability to teach your content knowledge and practitioner skills to others," says Deanna Sylvester, the AFMTE Educator Certification Project Manager. "It’s a way to show you exemplify the highest excellence as an educator of massage and bodywork. It’s a way to say you strongly believe credentialing instructors in both entry-level training programs and post-graduate studies will strengthen and improve the overall quality of therapeutic massage and bodywork practitioners."

The CETMB credential is currently awarded through a  voluntary portfolio review process. The AFMTE Educator Certification Program’s portfolio review process allows experienced educators to demonstrate they have achieved proficiency in the Core Competencies for Massage Therapy Teachers without having to complete a formal teacher training program.

Instructors can learn more about the credential and apply at www.afmte.org/abmp-promotion-for-afmte-educator-certification-program , or contact Deanna Sylvester at deanna@afmte.org for more information. If you are a massage and bodywork instructor who would like to join ABMP, you can save $24 on ABMP membership when you join by calling 800-458-2267.
