Oregon 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 as of July 12, 2021 Oregon requires massage therapists to complete only 12 CE hours for license renewal applications received in the Board office between June 30, 2021 to March 31, 2023.

Of the 12 hours, you are required to complete 1 hour in Cultural Competency, and the 1 hour online Pain Management Module course provided by the Oregon Pain Management Commission.

Your Current Basic Life Support certification at the time of renewal remains a requirement and the hours spent obtaining your certification (whether completed online or in person) may be counted towards your total 12 CE hours.

SUSPENDED: The 4 hour ethics, boundaries and communication requirement is suspended for renewals received between March 24, 2020 and March 31, 2023.

For renewal applications received after March 31, 2023 as well as applications that were submitted before this day but not completed by March 31, 2023, you will be required to complete the 25 CE hours typically required including a minimum of 15 contact hour as well as all of the other course requirements including ethics.
