Florida Massage Therapy

Continuing Education Requirements

TEMPORARY CE CHANGES

On February 2, 2022 the Florida Board of Massage announced that they will allow specific, approved, home study courses to satisfy the twelve classroom hours (in-person, or live) for the biennial renewal ending August 31, 2023.

Massage therapy license requirements vary from state to state and the laws are constantly changing. It is our current understanding that for license renewal Florida requires massage therapists to complete 24 CE hours by August 31st of each odd-numbered year. NOTE: The HIV/AIDS CE requirement is only for for initial license renewal.

The 24 CE hours must include at least 2 CE hours in Professional Ethics, 2 CE hours in the prevention of Medical Errors, at least 2 CE hours in Florida Laws and Rules, and 1 CE hour on human trafficking.

What We Can Do For You!

  • You will need to complete a minimum of 12 classroom hours.The following course is approved to satisfy this requirement:
  • If you have completed at least 12 classroom hours through courses that have been approved by the board as LIVE, then you may take up to 12 hours through our home study programs for the 2021-2023 biennial renewal.
  • You can choose from any of our six specially priced Florida packages that will include the required ethics, medical errors and law topics. We do not currently offer a human trafficking program.

EXCEPTION: The Florida Board will not approve the Therapeutic Techniques of Deep Tissue Massage: Part II course, due to the total length of video included.
