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 its 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 more than 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.

ALLEGRA Learning Solutions has also designed and developed nationally accredited and nationally endorsed certificate programs in the areas of spirituality and integrative health, as well as nationally accredited programs in complementary and alternative medicine, and gerontology. Their clients and partners include leaders in the publishing, education and health-care industries.
