Oregon Massage Therapy

Continuing Education Requirements

TEMPORARY CE CHANGES DUE TO COVID-19

Massage therapy license requirements vary from state to state and the laws are constantly changing. It is our current understanding that as of July 12, 2021 Oregon requires massage therapists to complete only 12 CE hours for license renewal applications received in the Board office between June 30, 2021 to July 1, 2022.

Of the 12 hours, you are required to complete 1 hour in Cultural Competency, and the 1 hour online Pain Management Module course provided by the Oregon Pain Management Commission.

Your Current Basic Life Support certification at the time of renewal remains a requirement and the hours spent obtaining your certification (whether completed online or in person) may be counted towards your total 12 CE hours.

SUSPENDED: The 4 hour ethics, boundaries and communication requirement is suspended for renewals received between June 30, 2021 and July 1, 2022.

For renewal applications received after July 1, 2022 as well as applications that were submitted before this day but not completed by July 1, 2022, you will be required to complete the 25 CE hours typically required including a minimum of 15 contact hour as well as all of the other course requirements including ethics.
