Massage Continuing Education Webinar
and learning new techniques online!

.A massage continuing education webinar (or web-based seminar) is a new choice for massage therapists to take their CE classes in a convenient way, from anywhere they have an internet connection...

As a participant, one views slides while listening to the instructor's voice. This format also allows the therapist an opportunity to ask questions, participate in discussions, and listen to others speak about the technique or topic being taught.

Many continuing education providers are now offering webinars. They are an affordable alternative for massage therapists, but also allow educators to teach classes to many students at the same time.

This is a new way for therapists to learn from top educators without travel expenses, at an affordable price, in the convenience of home or office, and still interact with the instructor.

Pros and Cons of Massage Continuing Education Webinar Learning

Pros

  • Can be done at home! Live workshop classes are great, but they require you to take time away from your job, business, and/or family, sometimes for an extended period of time. Webinars give you the convenience of both!
  • Affordable! Massage continuing education webinar costs are much less plus you save the expense of travel (airfare, gas, long car ride, meals, etc.) and have no lost wages. Cost of a class is usually $25-$30.
  • AMTA, ABMP, NCBTMB approved! However, always double check that the provider you choose is approved.
  • Video demonstrations, live Q&A, and live chat
  • Massage Experts! Ability to have well-known educators that offer expert instruction and advice for growing your practice.
  • Visual learning...which is how most people learn best!
  • On your schedule! Although massage continuing education webinar classes are live, most offer a recording so you can watch when it is convenient for you or re-watch to catch something you've missed
  • Simple and easy to use -Visual and audio are streamed through your computer
  • Ability to provide feedback and webinar ratings to the presenter

Cons

  • Space is limited in a massage continuing education webinar, but you can often purchase a recorded version after the fact
  • Participation in live Q&A, and live chat are only for those that attend live
  • Must be self-directed—you need to make the time to watch and practice these techniques without the structure of being in a classroom setting
  • Not hands-on - webinars are a virtual learning tool
  • No certification—these courses are more general and do not claim to certify you as a specialist or allow you to claim you are certified by an instructor
