Specialty Certificate programs were developed to provide training in specific modalities and for work with specific populations. In light of NCBTMB’s strategic focuses on its core programs of Board Certification and Approved Provider, the NCBTMB Board discontinued Specialty Certificate programs in December 2021. NCBTMB continues to support all massage therapists in their pursuit of lifelong learning through the NCBTMB Approved Provider program, which gives access to the highest quality continuing education in the profession, including many advanced programs.
