FAQs

Will you report our CE Hours to CE Broker?
CE Institute reports CE Hours to CE Broker within 24 hours of successful completion of class.  All of CE Institute's Classes are Florida Board of Massage/CE Broker Approved, meaning, they all qualify for Florida State Massage Therapist License Renewal. All classes except Foot Reflexology Theory (ONLINE), Intro to Cupping Theory (ONLINE), Intro to TCM & Cupping Theory (ONLINE) Circular Therapy™ & 4 Handed Mirror Massage are NCBTMB approved as well.  Please check your own state's various CE requirements if you are unsure about your CE renewal requirements.

Who Teaches the Classes?
Selena Belisle is the Instructor, a Retired Professional Athlete and a Master Therapist of Multiple Modalities.  She has studied at the Beijing Hospital in Beijing China, The New School of Acupuncture and completed over a 1,000 Hour Program at the Massage Institute of New England. She has been practicing massage and bodywork for almost 30 years.  You can click the INSTRUCTOR tab on the top menu bar to view an abbreviated list of Selena's Professional Certifications, Accomplishments and Accolades.

What are the class sizes? They are SMALL. We try to never have more than 16 students (usually less) per live class so that everyone receives excellent attention and direction.  The only exception to this rule is when Instructor Selena Belisle provides Group Presentations for the AMTA, State House, FSMTA, etc.  Check out our class pictures to view our class sizes throughout the years.  

Where are the classes located?
We offer ​​classes in Miami Beach FL, Downtown Miami FL, Washington DC and Boston, Ma.  All Classes in 2017 will be held at 111 NE 1st Street, #910-#911 (9th Floor), Miami FL 33132.  You can view pictures of our building and learning center by click the LEARNING CENTER tab at the top of the page, or view pictures of nearby parking by clicking the PARKING tab at the top of the page.
​​
Will there be breaks?
Our classes are designed with a 10 minute break every hour.  This gives you a chance to use the restroom, make a phone call or grab a snack without missing class - and you still receive credit for the entire hour(s).  A 50 Minute Clock Hour is generally one of the most acceptable teaching formats - and we believe taking frequent breaks will help keep your attention and allow you to retain a greater amount of information.  Most 6 and 12 CE Hour classes also include a 30 minute meal break as well.  Please contact us if you would like to know the specified break time allotted for your class.

What more can be said about the classes?
Having Fun is Mandatory. All of us would rather spend time with a loved one or in a hobby or sport instead of class. So, we make it as painless as possible when you have to learn new materials or fulfill licensing requirements.  In fact, may of our students like our classes so much that they repeat and try new subjects!  Our classes are very serious business; so, we appreciate the materials and make learning a fun, educational, visual hands-on experience for everyone to enjoy.  You can view what other students said about our classes by clicking the TESTIMONIALS tab at the top of the page.

What is available for class handouts and materials?
You are provided Class Handouts, a Workbook Folder, Pens, Markers, and a Beautiful Certificate of Completion with every Class/Seminar/Workshop.  You will leave with fabulous new hands-on skills, and written materials/hand-outs to help remind and reference what was learned.
​​​​
Do I have to bring my own table or supplies?
For your convenience, we provide the tables, massage chairs, face cradles, bolsters and equipment.  You need to bring your License #, Sheets, Face Cradle Cover and lotions or oils.  For your convenience, we offer 1 set of clean sheets per attendee (to keep) for $10 for anyone who forgets their own.

Do you charge for "late registration" or "deposits"?
NO. You are charged the same price no matter when you register.  We sell all seats in the class for the same price until the class sells out (which is often).  We also have low class prices so we do not charge for deposits. Students must pay the full price of class to register, and if you need to cancel or change for any reason, simply provide us 7 days notice prior to the start of class for a full exchange or refund.

Where can I eat?
For your convenience, we have a comfortable student break room outside of classroom which has microwaves, refrigerator, freezer, toaster oven, sink, tables and chairs.  Your Instructor will provide coffee, tea, spring water and snacks for the class. You should bring your own meal or snacks if you wish to eat while at the school. Eating is allowed during class lecture, meal and/or break times.  Eating is not allowed during the practical hands-on portion of class.
​​
Where do I park?
We want your day to start off right!  We ensure there is plentiful: free, street and/or affordable parking no matter which location we offer our class.  ​You can view the different nearby parking options by clicking the LEARNING CENTER tab at the top of the page.
​​
What makes this education different from others?
We try to think of everything, from providing class materials/effective hand-outs and relevant studies that can be referenced by students at later dates, ​to making sure you have a place to park or eat, to providing beautiful Certificates of Completion of all courses (something you can hang on your wall and be proud).  We work very hard to ensure you have a positive and valuable learning experience. Not only is our instructor a master in every area that is taught, but as a NCBTMB National Board Certified Approved CE Provider, we provide Class Surveys at the end of every class to give us the opportunity to improve upon feedback, and continue what works well.

Who can attend or participate in CE Institute Classes?
​​All live class participants must have graduated from an appropriate training program which allows them to practice the actual work taught in class (i.e. MT graduate, Esthetician graduate, Nurse graduate, etc.).  Managers and front desk personnel may attend live/hands-on classes however they may not participate in the hands-on portion of class,. Online Classes are only available to Licensed (plus expired/delinquent licensed) professionals.  All appropriate licensed (plus expired/delinquent licensed) professionals will receive a Certificate of Attendance with their name and license # printed on it (as required in NCBTMB classes).  We do not provide CE Credit or a Certificate for anyone who is not a graduate, does not hold a respective license, or has never held a license in any of the necessary/respective fields.

Why choose CE Institute?
​​We believe in QUALITY AFFORDABLE education.  Our instructor teaches multiple subjects every week and as such, does not need to charge an "arm and a leg" to provide a one-time or once-a-month class.  We do not believe that charging more makes a better class.  To the contrary, our students have repeatedly surveyed 100% Overall Class Satisfaction and 100% Satisfaction in Class Quality and Costs.
