Baby’s First Massage® Continuing Education Provider Information

The Baby’s First Massage® program offers continuing education contact hours through several organizations. The hours differ from group to group because of the unique way each organization counts time. If you have completed any of the three workshops offered, (the onsite workshop, the independent study, or the certification session) and are submitting your contact hours for license renewal, in general, use the approved provider number, the program number, and the correct continuing education hours assigned to that course.

If you have lost your certificate and need a replacement, there is a $5 fee. Please contact amy@babysfirstmassage.com to obtain your replacement records. All records are maintained in a secure location for at least 7 years.
