The Alliance for Massage Therapy Education (AFMTE), a self-described voice, advocate and resource for the community of massage therapy schools and educators, has launched a new career center and online training program.
• 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.
People seeking teaching and administrative positions at a massage therapy school can post their résumés to the AFMTE’s Career Center free of charge. Massage therapy schools are invited to place their recruitment ads on the site.
• The Alliance Online Training Center is a 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, according to an AFMTE press release.
