It is our understanding that Registered Massage Therapists practicing in the province of Ontario must complete and submit specified STRiVE components on an annual basis between September 1 and November 30. STRiVE replaces the previous continuing education program which was based on a three-year cycle.
The key components of STRiVE include:
RMT's are responsible for selecting quality learning activities that meet their professional development goals set out in their learning plan. Professional learning activities do not have to be approved by the CMTO. CE providers are not required to have programs approved by the CMTO. Therefore, you can utilize any of our our home study programs to help you reach your goals!
If you would like to verify this information, or have further questions regarding your massage therapy continuing education requirements, we suggest contacting the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario directly. The telephone number for the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario is 800-465-1933 or visit their website at https://strive.cmto.com/.
If you are a member of NHPC you may use any of our programs to complete your 20 Continued Competency Program credits toward your biennial membership renewal.
Remember, the Institute for Integrative Healthcare Studies is approved by the NCBTMB as a continuing education Approved Provider (#049478-00) and Health Positive! is a division of the Institute. All of our continuing education programs can be used for your Board Certification renewal.
You may also use our credits for other organizations you belong to such as the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) or Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals (ABMP).
