Hoboken, NJ, May 14, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Continuing Education is an important tool for continuing success as a Massage Therapist and Cortiva Institute is now offering a variety of courses, with ease of online registration.
"There is a tremendous demand for continuing education. In some cases, massage therapists are required to take continuing education courses in order to renew their state licenses or certification, therapists are looking to expand their knowledge and enhance their skills” says Jan Schwartz, VP of Education for Cortiva. We have created numerous CE courses, which are now being offered at all of our schools and provide massage therapists with geographic options, a variety of schedules, and the convenience of online registration for any of the courses with just a coupe of clicks,” Swartz adds.
“We developed an online registration tool in response to the high demand,” explains Fernando Lopez, Director of Marketing for Cortiva. “Our Continuing Education website; http://www.cortiva.com/ce/, was designed for Massage Therapists who were requesting an easier and faster way to sign up for CE courses.” He continues, “This tool has been active for about two weeks and the response has been tremendous – our CE course registration has increased by 30% just due to the new online registration.”
Diane Trieste, VP Employer & Alumni Relations, says: “We are not stopping there, in fact, if you are a business owner who needs training for your staff, we will provide you with onsite training. Cortiva understands that it can be difficult for business owners to send their employees away for additional training on new techniques or refresher courses, so we have designed CE programs and a structure that overcomes the time and geographic constraints Since we have the ability to work with any employer to train their staff whenever and wherever” Trieste adds.
The U.S. Labor department (http://www.dol.gov/) reports that “employment for massage therapists is expected to increase 27% or more within the next 5 years” (http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos295.htm). Trieste responds: “We understand the demand is on the rise, however, we will not sacrifice quality over quantity. We differentiate ourselves from other education providers by delivering a higher standard of education, making learning attractive, and offering convenient and accessible options” she adds.
