Your resource for continuing education classes.
About the PERG.....
The Professional Education & Resource Guide is most well-known by its acronym, PERG, pronounced like the “burg” part of “hamburger” only with a “p.” Massage therapists and bodyworkers have come to rely on the PERG for easy reference to continuing education opportunities in their state.
Published in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee, the print editions of the PERG are mailed free of charge to licensed massage therapists and bodyworkers. Massage therapists need only keep their address up to date with their state licensing board to receive the PERG in their mailbox. North Carolina and South Carolina Editions are published twice per year, every year, in January and July. The Georgia PERG is published twice per year in renewal years (January and July) and once per year in non-renewal years (July, only.) Tennessee is published in January and July of renewal years.
Readers can select courses by browsing the pages of advertisements or looking up dates for live classes happening near them in the index at the back of the booklet. You’ll find all the current editions available in flipbook format for viewing and printing at home by clicking on the Print Editions link at the top of this page. On that same webpage you will find archives of all the past print issues.
Search the database of live and home study CE classes for massage therapists and bodyworkers. Live classes include regular classes (called "Live Class"), webinars, and conferences. You can customize your search by CE Provider name, course subject, topic, distance from your zip code, and more. The database has links to webpage descriptions and email contact information for each course. What could be easier!
