Illinois Massage Therapy

Continuing Education Requirements


Massage therapy license requirements vary from state to state and the laws are constantly changing. It is our current understanding that Illinois requires massage therapists to complete 24 CE hours every 2 years for license renewal, of which 2 CE hours must be in ethics. For licensees renewing AFTER January 1, 2020, 1 CE hour on the topic of sexual harassment prevention training must be completed. This can be part of the total 24 hours required.

What We Can Do For You!

  • As of September 15, 2020, the State of Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation amended by emergency rulemaking the requirement pertaining to the number of CE hours that must be obtained through live training for this renewal period - ending December 31, 2020. Therefore, you may complete your continuing education hours through our home study programs with the exception of the sexual harassment requirement. For more information please visit
  • You can use our various ethics continuing education courses to satisfy your Illinois requirements.
  • The Illinois Board of Massage will accept all of our 160+ courses to satisfy your continuing education requirements with the exception of the 1 hour in sexual harassment prevention. We are an Approved Continuing Education Sponsor for Illinois (#245.000004).
