MTAM Professional Development Program

Professional development and continuing competence is the ability to continually enhance and expand knowledge and performance of skills to practice safe, competent and ethical care as a massage therapist.

Continuing competency is a cornerstone of ethical, professional and competent practice in health care. The MTAM implemented a compulsory Continuing Education program in 2002 and currently all MTAM members participate in the Professional Development Program which includes completing annual self-assessment. 

"MTAM massage therapists are the only RMTs in the province that have a fully-monitored Continuing Competency Program (not audit-based) and our members believe in and welcome continuous professional development..."

To complete the process, the Committee requires detailed information from a course provider/instructor who is seeking credit approval.  Please apply:
