Florida Massage Therapy Continuing Education Requirements


On February 2, 2022 the Florida Board of Massage announced that they will allow specific, approved, home study courses to satisfy the twelve classroom hours (in-person, or live, relevant to and focus on massage therapy techniques) for the biennial renewal ending August 31, 2023.

Massage therapy continuing education requirements for license renewal vary from state to state and the laws are constantly changing. It is our current understanding that for license renewal Florida requires massage therapists to complete 24 CE hours by August 31st of each odd-numbered year. NOTE: The HIV/AIDS CE requirement is only for for initial license renewal.

The 24 CE hours must include 2 CE hours in Professional Ethics, 2 CE hours in the prevention of Medical Errors, 2 CE hours in Florida Laws and Rules, and 1 CE hour on human trafficking. We do not offer a course on human trafficking at this time.

UPDATE 8/30/2023 --- In response to Hurricane Idalia, the Florida Department of Health, in accordance with Executive Order 23-171, Executive Order 23-172 and the Florida Department of Health Emergency Order Number 23-001 and Florida Department of Health Emergency Order Number 23-002 has extended license expiration dates for Massage Therapists and Massage Establishments (August 31, 2023) to midnight on Monday, October 2, 2023. Unless another extension is granted, any active license not renewed before this time will go into a delinquent status. If your license expired in 2021 your license will be moved to null and void status after this date. Please continue to check for updated licensure expiration date information.
