Washington 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 Washington requires massage therapists to complete 24 CE hours every 2 years for license renewal. A minimum of 4 CE hours must be in ethics, communication and/or Washington state massage laws and rules. 2 of these 4 CE hours must include professional roles and boundaries. These 4 CE hours and 12 more CE hours may be taken through home study programs.

What We Can Do For You!

  • You may take a maximum of 16 CE hours through our home study programs.
    • You may fulfill your minimum requirement of 4 CE hours in ethics, communication and/or Washington state massage laws and rules through our home study programs. Please note that 2 of these 4 CE hours must include professional roles and boundaries.
    • You may enroll in any of our 160+ courses to satisfy the remaining 12 CE hours. Because the Institute for Integrative Healthcare Studies is approved by the NCBTMB as a continuing education Approved Provider, the Washington Board of massage will accept these courses.

If you would like to verify this information, or have further questions regarding your massage therapy continuing education requirements, we suggest contacting the Washington Board of Massage directly. The telephone number for the Washington Board is 360-236-4847 or visit their website at http://apps.leg.wa.gov/WAC/default.aspx?cite=246-830-475.

Remember, the Institute for Integrative Healthcare Studies is approved by the NCBTMB as a continuing education Approved Provider (#049478-00) and Health Positive! is a division of the Institute. All of our continuing education programs can be used for your Board Certification renewal.

You may also use our credits for other organizations you belong to such as the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) or Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals (ABMP).
