Course Description: In this course, you will learn how to use the Precision Model of Communication (as used in Neuro-Linguistic Programming), to help you have more effective communication with your massage therapy clients. The CE course will teach you how to get clarification when your communication partner is giving you vague or non-specific information. Once you have a better understanding, the techniques in this course will help you work toward a solution. You will also learn related skills such as becoming a better speaker in a public and therapeutic setting, and learning to read body language and project stronger body language to others.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
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 print the online test to work on it at my convenience? Yes. We provide a study guide with this course that has the test questions and answer choices. You can print it off and work on it as you study. When you are ready to take the test, you will log into the system and supply your answers to the test questions.
What happens if I fail the test? Do I have to pay again? No. If you happen to fail our test, you can continue to retest until you do pass at no additional charge.
Can I review the course materials 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.
Do you report our course completions to the NCBTMB, ABMP, AMTA, or any other agencies? None of these agencies have a method for us to report to them on your behalf. They prefer that you provide the evidence of CEs that their renewal process details.
CE Broker Reporting: Institute of Somatic Therapy will automatically report your hours to CE Broker in applicable states ONLY IF you have provided your license number in your online account with us.
