Dear S4OM community,
You may have received an email from NCB regarding a PILOT oncology massage certification exam. Please know that this is being done in collaboration with CATA NYC and includes the ability to sit for the exam if you have taken a course offered by a S4OM Recognized Education Provider.
The S4OM Board of Directors have been in discussions with NCB for over a year about a specialty certification and were initially surprised when we recently first heard of the plans with CATA. In ongoing conversations with NCB, we have affirmed the intention to have an Oncology Massage Certification Exam that is based on a curriculum developed by S4OM. We have also affirmed that a S4OM task force that works on the curriculum will also have a hand in writing the exam questions.
In the meantime, this pilot certification exam for Oncology Massage is a start towards our ultimate goal of having a S4OM Oncology Massage certification exam. If anyone in the S4OM community chooses to take the pilot certification exam just announced, we would love to know your thoughts about it.
We hope to see you at the Summit, April 27-29, in Bloomington MN where certification will be among the many items discussed.
"Opening the Circle, Expanding the Tribe" is the main theme of the 2018 Oncology Massage Healing Summit held at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN. Speakers from around the globe came to share their wisdom with us. Stay tuned for our next Summit - tentatively scheduled for 2020!
