Mississippi 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 Mississippi requires massage therapists to complete 24 CE hours every 2 years for license renewal, of which 3 CE hours must be in Mississippi Law, Rules and Regulations, 3 CE hours must be in Ethics, and 3 hours must be in CPR/First Aid renewal from a recognized MSBMT provider.

IMPORTANT: The Mississippi Board eliminated the requirement for classroom/interactive hours for renewal. You can now earn all your hours through home study or online programs.
