The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) announced a partnership with the American College of Healthcare Sciences (ACHS) to introduce the profession’s first Spa Management Specialty Certificate Program.
The program offers massage therapists who are looking to grow their careers an opportunity to obtain specialty training in spa management positions.
“We are thrilled to partner with ACHS to create yet another career pathway for all massage therapists, bodyworkers, spa managers, and even spa owners with an interest in furthering their success,” says Donna Sarvello, NCBTMB vice president of educational support. “By achieving this Specialty Certificate, therapists are empowered with an industry-recognized credential to separate themselves from the pack. NCBTMB is proud to continue fulfilling its mission of defining and advancing newer, higher standards for therapists involved in this rewarding sector.”
The program has two key components:
- ACHS Certificate in Holistic Spa Management (five courses totaling nine semester credit hours*)
