ABMP Becomes the Largest Provider of Free CE in the Massage & Bodywork Profession

ABMP: The Home for Continuing Education

ABMP is excited to announce the acquisition of the World Massage Conference Vault, featuring more than 400 on-demand continuing education classes for massage therapists and bodyworkers. These courses are now available to ABMP Certified members and for purchase in the ABMP Education Center.

ABMP members have already enjoyed free continuing education as part of their membership—more than any other organization or membership association. Now, ABMP Certified members will have access to more than 600 on-demand CE courses—the most online massage and bodywork CE in the world! By combining more than 200 hours in the ABMP Education Center with the World Massage Conference Vault, there's never been a better time to be an ABMP Certified member.

"We are thrilled to bring the World Massage Conference CE to ABMP members," says Les Sweeney, president of ABMP. "We know our members love the free CE they receive as part of membership, so for us to be able to expand that access with the quantity and quality of the World Massage Conference Vault is an exciting opportunity for our members and the profession as a whole. This is another example of how ABMP membership provides the most opportunities for massage therapists and bodyworkers to expand their skills, reach new clients, and enhance their careers."

The World Massage Conference, started more than a decade ago by Eric Brown, Scott Dartnall, and Melanie Hayden, brought online continuing education to more than 400,000 therapists from 194 countries. "On behalf of all of our members and everyone at ABMP, we sincerely thank Eric, Scott, and Melanie for their work over the years to enrich the massage and bodywork profession," Sweeney says. "ABMP will proudly carry on the spirit and tradition of the World Massage Conference." ABMP will continue to provide access to all existing World Massage Conference Vault subscribers through March 31, 2019, as well as additional options to purchase or extend vault access. 

The founders of the World Massage Conference shared the following message to all the massage therapists and bodyworkers who have participated in the conference over the years: "You get up every morning and bring a spirit of love and caring into your practice. You put your heart into your work whether you are doing your first massage of the day or your eighth massage of the day. You literally touch the lives of the people in your community and make the world a better place. You and your colleagues are our heroes, and we are delighted that we've been able to serve you. All the best to your continued success."
