SAN DIEGO (April 7, 2011) – The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) approved ALLEGRA Learning Solutions as a provider of continuing education (CE) courses for massage therapists in March 2011. The NCBTMB rigorously reviewed ALLEGRA’s courses and certificate programs and awarded the accreditation because of their high-quality content and support of professional excellence.

For massage therapists and other health care providers, this accreditation means access to ALLEGRA’s extensive catalog of continuing education courses. It also means a reliable, easy, online solution to their continuing education needs.

ALLEGRA Learning Solutions adds this latest accreditation to their extensive and growing list of achievements. The company began in 1994 as a developer of over 200 vocational, baccalaureate, and master’s level degree programs for schools and colleges that wanted to enter the new and exciting field of online learning.
