Massage Therapy, Non-Credit, CEU Classes

The Workforce Training Department works closely with the Massage Therapy Department to provide non-credit classes for CEUs (Continuing Education Units). Usually one class per term, but sometimes more, they provide a chance for current professionals to upgrade their skills or learn a totally new technique.
 
One does not have to be a massage therapist or hold any license in healthcare to attend, however it is easier to understand some of the terms and functions being discussed.
