Ethics in Massage: Human Trafficking
Human Trafficking CEU Course – Outline and Learning Outcomes
As of July 1, 2019, massage professionals are required by the Boards to complete one hour of continuing education (CE) on human trafficking and post a sign about human trafficking in their office by January 1, 2021. As a massage therapist and professional bodyworker, your job is to provide your clients with the highest quality care possible. But what about making sure you, the massage therapist, is safe? There are many forms of human trafficking that exist in the world today, this course will cover the common forms listed by the US Department.
Human trafficking in the massage industry taints the public’s perception of massage therapists everywhere. This ever-growing industry puts many licensed massage therapists at risk to becoming victims of it. The full impact is not yet known but is said to be wide spread and potentially vary devastating to the field of massage therapy. It’s vital to be aware about this issue, be alert for your own protection, and become involved in changing things for the better of the field.
An ethics CEU course is one of the required courses for practitioners, much like a course in medical errors. In many states, the state licensing board mandates a massage ethics course as an absolute requirement for all licensed practitioners. Depending on your state or if you a board certified LMT, you may be required to take 2 to 3 CEU credits in ethics. We offer our Ethics in Massage course worth 2 CEUs and this course, Human Trafficking worth 1 CEU credit to fulfill those requirements.
If you’re ready to enroll in an ethics massage CEU course, look no further: you’ve found the right one.
Learning Objectives for Ethics in Massage: Human Trafficking CEU Course
The objectives of this course are that you walk away with an understanding of what human trafficking is, who it effects, the effect it has on the massage therapy industry, how to spot it, how you can best protect yourself from becoming a victim of it, and what you can do to help.
What are CEUs, and Why are They Important?
Being a massage professional, you know that it’s vital to continue your education from year to year. This is, after all, how you grow on a professional and personal level. Continuing education takes a couple of forms. First of all, every client you see in your practice has something to teach you: clinical experience can be an amazing teacher. In addition to this, though, it’s absolutely essential to continue your education in a more traditional format, using didactic coursework. If you’ve been looking for a way to keep learning in this kind of way, we have the answer. Online massage CEUs, or Continuing Education Units, are the perfect learning approach for the busy massage professional.
And remember: while CEUs are important for your professional growth, they’re also legally mandated in most states. Indeed, all across the country, the vast majority of states require that massage therapists obtain a certain annual minimum number of CEU hours (sometimes this minimum is calculated biennially or triennially) in order to maintain they licensure in that state.

Not only will our CEU courses meet NCBTMB requirements for certification: they’ll also count towards your annual licensure requirements at the state level.
