Maryland Massage Therapy Continuing Education Requirements

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 Maryland requires massage therapists to complete 24 CE hours every 2 years for license renewal, of which 1 CE hour must be in diversity or cultural competency, 3 CE hours must be in ethics or jurisprudence AND 3 CE hours must be in communicable diseases (to include HIV/AIDS). (The remaining 17 hours must be in massage-related courses.)

What We Can Do For You!

  • You may take all CE 24 hours through our home study programs.
  • You can use our various ethics, communicable disease and diversity/cultural competency continuing education courses to satisfy Maryland's specific topic requirements. Or you can choose from our specially priced Maryland packages that will include all of the Maryland course specific requirements.
  • Because the Institute for Integrative Healthcare Studies is approved by the NCBTMB as a continuing education Approved Provider, the Maryland Board of Massage will accept all of our 150+ courses to satisfy the 24-hour requirement with the exception of courses related to animal massage, insurance, practice building or marketing.
