The NCCA reaccredited the NCBTMB Board Certification in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (BCTMB) designation for a five-year period, expiring April 30, 2025, during its recent meeting.
Founded in 1992, NCBTMB is a professional certification organization acting in the public interest by establishing and enforcing education, examination, experience, and ethics requirements for certification. Currently, almost 14,000 massage therapists are certified to use the BCTMB designation.
NCBTMB received renewal of NCCA accreditation by submitting an application demonstrating the program’s compliance with the NCCA’s Standards for the Accreditation of Certification Programs. NCCA is the accrediting body of the Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE; formerly the National Organization for Competency Assurance). Since 1977, the NCCA has been accrediting certifying programs based on the highest quality standards in professional certification to ensure the programs adhere to modern standards of practice in the certification industry.

There are more than 315 NCCA-accredited programs that certify individuals in a wide range of professions and occupations including nurses, financial professionals, respiratory therapists, counselors, emergency technicians, crane operators, and more.
