What is CE Registry?

CE Registry is a registry of educators, providing massage and bodywork therapy continuing education, who meet and adhere to the standards set by FSMTB. The CE Registry accepts information from continuing education providers, including course completion rosters, and transfers that information into the national Massage Therapy Licensing Database (MTLD) for permanent recording. CE Registry includes a Course Search capability that allows potential CE consumers (LMTs) to search for the right course for them.

CE Providers are monitored for ongoing demonstration of compliance with FSMTB national Continuing Education Standards through feedback from students. Course completion records are stored in the therapist record MTLD. State regulatory boards determine if continuing education hours meet their requirements for license renewal in their state.

Why was CE Registry created?

The FSMTB Continuing Education Registry was developed at the request of the member boards of the FSMTB. It addresses concerns from regulators about accountability and the quality of continuing education. CE Registry addresses these concerns by:

  • Accepting only those providers that meet or exceed the FSMTB CE Standards approved by the regulatory community, which will provide a level of consistency across jurisdictions.
  • Providing a reliable source of information for state regulatory boards so they can make better informed license renewal decisions.
  • Recording course completion information in the therapist record of the national Massage Therapy Licensing Database (MTLD).
  • Creating a Course Search to provide accurate information to potential learners about courses offered by registered providers.
  • Providing an efficient administrative process that meets the needs of the regulatory community while not overburdening the provider.
