CE Booster - The Real Benefits of Online Learning
Stuart Hinds (4 x Olympic) Soft Tissue Therapist - "Why Online Learning is Just Fabulous!"
Take advantage of CE by choosing right, and make your investment work for you!
Just about every therapist is required to complete some form of annual or bi-annual continued education (CE).
In essence, CE is a terrific idea, designed to ensure that therapists invest time in learning new techniques and keeping up with latest developments in the very dynamic world of manual therapy.
Benefit or Burden?
Unfortunately, over the years, many therapists have understandably come to regard CE as a burden, rather than a great opportunity to learn new skills and grow their income potential.
Part of the reason for this is that the costs for live CE events and workshops (including income-loss, and travel expenses) have grown on average more than 300% over the last 10 years.
Another reason is that over the same time period, online CE courses have become synonymous with "form filling", with many courses being designed for convenience, rather than a focus on valuable and practical education.
Home study CE should be affordable, easy to access, straightforward to learn, and immediately practical.
