We have a 7 CE renewal package with the 7 mandated hours, and we have a complete 24 CE renewal package that includes everything you need for renewal in one discounted package. You can also "Customize Your Own Package" if neither of these two packages fit your needs.

Testing: You complete your test online, and immediately upon passing, print your own certificate. To see how our online courses and testing work, we invite you to take our free sample course.

Reporting to CE Broker for Florida therapists: Institute of Somatic Therapy will report your hours to CE Broker ONLY IF you have provided your license number in your online account with us before you take the online test. We generally report 2-3 times per week, and more frequently as the renewal deadline approaches. Once the course is showing in your online account with CE Broker, you have an opportunity to rate the course. If you feel that we deserved a great rating, we hope that you are willing to share. Thank you.

Student Comments: "This was my third on-line ce course. I only wish that I had taken the other two through you. This class is presented very well and clear. For such a dry topic it was informative and held my interest. Thank you!!!!"

Are your online courses downloadable to my computer? No. You must be logged in on our website to view the course materials. Please feel free to take our free sample course to see how our online courses and testing works.

Will your online courses work on my phone, tablet, or other device? 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 courses if I want a hard copy? Most browsers allow you to print screen shots of any web page you visit but often the formatting leaves much to be desired. If you prefer hard copies, you are much better off with the “by mail” version if that is available for the course you are taking.

Can I print the online test to work on it at my convenience? No. When you take the test, one question at a time will come up, and you must answer it before going to the next question. The test will be different each time you take it. To maintain the highest level of integrity with our testing process, with most of our online courses we have written more test questions than you are required to answer. When you click to take the test, the computer will randomly pick the number of question s that you have to answer. For example, we may have 50 questions banked and you only have to answer 30 for your test. The computer will pick 30 questions from the 50. The next time, it will again pick 30 questions from the 50, so some will be the same as before and some will be different. This way, if two students are sitting side-by-side taking the same course together, each one will have a different test.

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. With most of our courses, as noted above, the test will be different each time you take it. You can print out your test results to use as a reference for studying before taking the test again.

What is the difference between cognitive and kinesthetic courses? Cognitive courses are those that teach concepts related to massage therapy, but do not teach specific hands-on techniques. Courses such as ethics, pathology, anatomy, and research are classified as cognitive. Kinesthetic courses are those that teach specific hands-on techniques that you can use on clients during a massage therapy session. Some states limit how many kinesthetic courses can be completed in an online or home study setting. Refer to our state guidelines page for specifics about your state.

Do you automatically report course completions to CE Broker? The only courses we automatically report are the two hour laws course or the six hour Florida renewal package. If you have taken any other courses that are for your Florida CE requirements, please drop us an email upon completion and we will gladly report it to CE Broker.

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.
