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 has waived the 17 hours of elective CEUs for licenses expiring October 31, 2020 due to COVID-19.
You will be required to completed the mandatory CEUs which include 1 CE hour must be in diversity or cultural competency, 3 CE hours must be in ethics, jurisprudence or risk management AND 3 CE hours must be in communicable diseases (to include HIV/AIDS).
Additionally, license/registrations renewals have been extended and will expire 30 days after the state of emergency is terminated.
If this is you received your license on or after October 31, 2019 you do not need to complete any CEUs for your license renewal, but must be sure to have a valid CPR certification.
If you would like to verify this information, or have further questions regarding your massage therapy continuing education requirements, we suggest contacting the Maryland Board of Massage directly. The telephone number for the Maryland Board is 410-764-4738 or visit their website at http://dhmh.maryland.gov/massage/Pages/education.aspx.
