Continuing Education at the Self Care Fair

Here's how Self Care Fair classes work:

When you register for the fair on our separate registration website, you'll have the opportunity to select which classes you wish to take on the day of the Fair. Details:


  • Attendees typically take one class in the morning, and one in the afternoon (some classes are shorter and may allow you to take two back-to-back classes in the morning or afternoon).

  • Classes range from 1-1/2 to 4 hours in length, depending on the topic.

  • All classes break between Noon and 2pm for lunch / demos / vendor time.

  • With exception to the CPR/First Aid class, the cost of all classes is included in your registration fee (the CPR class requires an extra fee for the card).

  • One CEU will be granted for each hour of class (not applicable to non-CEU classes); instructors will provide certificates at the end of class.

  • Some classes are held only once, others have a morning and an afternoon option.

  • All classes are first come, first served. Because popular classes sell out fast, we encourage you to register and choose your preferred classes as soon as possible. 

  • If you change your mind about a class, please remove the class from your registration by logging back into the registration website—this allows someone else to fill your vacated seat.

  • Please do not change classes on the day of the Fair. Instructors have already prepared your CE Certificate; making changes causes confusion and more work for us all.

Students and Current Massage School Instructors:

  • You DO need to register.

  • You do NOT need to select any classes—your $10 entry fee (refundable at the door) grants you walk-in *observational access* to ALL classes (except CPR)—except... 

  • You DO want to select the Discussion Panel option that we've tailored just for you! 

If you wish to *participate* in a class, due to limited space, you would need to pay the full / general registration price.
