Each of these massage therapy CEU courses earn an individual certificate of completion dated the date you complete the online test. Therefore, you can "straddle" your renewal periods by completing some of the courses now, and the remainder of the courses once your new renewal period begins.This is especially helpful for massage therapists who are licensed in a state jurisdiction where CEUs are required on a different timetable than their national renewal. All courses must be completed within one year of enrollment.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Can I make any substitutions to this package, such as a different ethics course? No, our system recognizes this package as a single unit. As such, no substitutions can be made. You can always enroll in separate courses and use the "Customize Your Own Package" coupon if this package does not meet your needs.
Are these courses valid for the NCBTMB? Yes, our provider number is 280672-00.
How long will it take me to complete this package? The four individual courses that make up this package are a total of 24 continuing education credits. The general rule is that you should expect to spend one clock hour for each credit, so you should plan on 24 hours of study time from start to finish, although some people are slower or faster than average.
How long do I have to complete the courses? You have one full year from enrollment to complete each course in this package. Courses not completed in that time are eligible for a one year extension by paying a reinstatement fee.
Will your online courses work on my phone, tablet, or other device? Yes. Since technology continues its rapid pace forward, it is impossible for us to provide a current and complete list of all devices on which our courses will work. We invite you to take our free sample course so that you can personally test if the online content and streaming video work on your device.
Can I review the online course materials or print another certificate after I’ve completed the test? Yes. Even after completing the test, you will have the option to access the online course materials, print another CE certificate, or review your test results. We promise this access for at least one year. We have always exceeded that time period, however, technology updates sometimes make older data inaccessible, so we do not promise more than one year. For this reason, we recommend that you save copies of your certificates and any downloadable PDF files that you may wish to access indefinitely.
