North Carolina 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 North Carolina requires massage therapists to complete 24 CE hours every 2 years for license renewal, of which 3 CE hours must be in ethics.

What We Can Do For You!

  • You may take up to 12 hours of the required 24 continuing education hours through our home study programs.
  • The North Carolina Board of Massage will accept all of our 140+ courses to satisfy the 12-hour home study option with the exception of courses related to animal massage.

If you would like to verify this information, or have further questions regarding your massage therapy continuing education requirements, we suggest contacting the North Carolina Board of Massage directly. The telephone number for the North Carolina Board is 919-546-0050 or visit their website at http://www.bmbt.org/.

The Institute for Integrative Healthcare Studies is approved by the NCBTMB as a continuing education Approved Provider (#049478-00). All of our continuing education programs can be used for Board Certification renewal.

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