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.
Massage professionals are required by the Board to complete one hour of continuing education on human trafficking and post a sign about human trafficking in their office. The Department launched an informational website that includes a breakdown of the law and addresses the sign requirement, continuing education, provides FAQs, specific Board of Massage requirements, and human trafficking reporting information.
If you would like to verify this information, or have further questions regarding your massage therapy continuing education requirements, we suggest contacting the Florida Board of Massage directly. The telephone number for the Florida Board is 850-245-4161 or visit their website at http://floridasmassagetherapy.gov/.
