Maryland 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 Maryland has waived the 17 hours of elective CEUs for licenses expiring October 31, 2020 due to COVID-19.

You will be required to completed the mandatory CEUs which include 1 CE hour must be in diversity or cultural competency, 3 CE hours must be in ethics, jurisprudence or risk management AND 3 CE hours must be in communicable diseases (to include HIV/AIDS).

Additionally, license/registrations renewals have been extended and will expire 30 days after the state of emergency is terminated.

If this is you received your license on or after October 31, 2019 you do not need to complete any CEUs for your license renewal, but must be sure to have a valid CPR certification.

What We Can Do For You!

  • Due to the ongoing concerns regarding the COVID-19, the Maryland Department of Health has waived the 17 elective CEUs for massage licenses renewing on October 31, 2020. However, the 3 CE hours in ethics, 3 hours in communicable disease and 1 hour in diversity or cultural competence are mandatory for all massage therapists (as long as you did not receive your initial license on or after 10/31/2019 whereby you are exempt from all CEU requirements).
