Finding CEUs

Post by fluidmotion » Thu Dec 12, 2013 2:24 pm

I just recently graduated school so technically not a student, but still feel like it. My question is what is the best place to find CEUs. I have been searching the internet but with little to no luck. Specifically, I would like to take sports massage, NMT, and orthopedic CEUs but are hard to find. When I do find them, they are once a year?! I am looking also finding that the field I am looking into (sports, ortho) there are not many offerings in Florida and if they are, again, they are once a year. Any insight and recommendations would be great.

Thanks

There are tons of CE classes throughout the year, but sometimes it takes some searching to find them. If you're willing to travel, you can take classes of any of the topics you mentioned in any month of the year. :)

For sports massage, you might check the web sites for Pete Pfannerstill, Michael McGillicuddy, and others.
Active Isolated Stretching seminars with Aaron Mattes are available in Sarasota - check his web site or Roger McNear's web site for seminar dates.
Orthopedic massage seminars with James Waslaski, Whitney Lowe, and Ben Benjamin are listed on their sites.
There are multiple schools of neuromuscular therapy - you might check the web sites for the NMT Center, Judith Delaney, Doug Nelson, Seth Will, and/or Precision Neuromuscular Therapy.

Most/all of those people/organizations also have Facebook pages that you might want to check out.

Many CE providers and events are hosted at massage schools, so check massage school web sites for info about the classes they teach/host. There are lots of schools in Florida, and I'm willing to bet that most of them host classes throughout the year.

I think you'll enjoy this topic: Excellent CEU Courses. And, when you find one that fits in here, don't forget to add it for others! :)

It is contained within our CEU Section, so you might find some other ideas in there too.

many CUs can be taken online. that said, for hands on education look for traveling courses that may visit your area seasonally. also reach out to existing academies, massage boutiques and ask if they can offer a one off course for you. you will have to get it qualified to get the CUs however.
