Why CPE is so important to ongoing massage training in Australia
To be an active member of AAMT, members are required to complete a level of continuing education every year for renewal as an Ordinary Member. This requirement commences after completion of the qualification (either Certificate IV or Diploma). This aspect of massage training is termed as Continuing Professional Education (CPE).
The purpose of this continuing education requirement is to encourage continued life long professional growth and learning for members that includes, but is not limited to further massage training.
By completing the ongoing education requirement each year, members also meet growing demands from the public, government, health fund and the insurance industry for improved practitioner competency and accountability.
