S4OM partnered with NCBTMB in 2018 to create a pathway towards an Oncology Massage Specialty Certificate. This certificate is a substantial start toward demonstrating expertise as an oncology massage therapist. By completing the 100 hours of required coursework, an applicant can qualify to take the written examination. A study guide is available on the NCBTMB website.

The 100 hours of coursework is categorized into two groups: Skill Enhancement and Knowledge Enhancement. Therapists must take at least 64 hours of courses containing Skill Enhancement. A current listing of courses that qualify for the S4OM pathway can be found below.
