The Alliance for Massage Therapy Education (AFMTE) has announced the launch of two new programs that will provide important benefits and services to the education community.

The Alliance Career Center is an online recruitment resource for massage therapy schools that are seeking to hire new administrative staff or faculty members. In contrast to broad-spectrum employment websites, the career center will feature listings targeted specifically to the massage education sector. All those who are seeking teaching and administrative positions at a massage therapy school can post their resumés to the Alliance Career Center free of charge. All massage therapy schools are invited to place their recruitment ads on the site.

This valuable service has been developed in partnership with Boxwood Technology, a leading provider of recruitment solutions for associations. The career center is based on the AFMTE website and may be accessed at

The cost for a posting a 30-day job listing is significantly less than major national boards. AFMTE gold level school members get a $100 discount off the regular price of each job listing. Until July 1, massage schools that become gold level members will get special introductory pricing on their first job listing on the career center.

The Alliance Online Training Center is a comprehensive resource to meet the ongoing professional development needs of the massage education community. The training center features more than 90 different courses in 10 subject areas, designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of massage school teachers, administrators and program directors, and continuing education providers. These highly effective learning experiences are facilitated by experts in each subject, and include the ability to interact with faculty who are available to coach the learning process and answer questions. The online delivery of these courses makes the process both affordable and convenient for busy professionals.

This service is now on the AFMTE website at, and has been developed in partnership with MaxKnowledge, a leading provider of professional development for the career education sector. Access to courses is via Enrollment Key, and is available to the entire massage education community. AFMTE gold level members receive a $20 discount on every course, and their first full course is free. Both AFMTE members and nonmembers alike may register on the training center to get free access to more than 20 tutorials and invitations to ongoing webinars.
