Washington Massage Therapy Continuing Education Requirements

TEMPORARY CE CHANGES DUE TO COVID-19

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 Washington requires massage therapists to complete 24 CE hours every 2 years for license renewal. A minimum of 4 CE hours must be in ethics, communication and/or Washington state massage laws and rules. 2 of these 4 CE hours must include professional roles and boundaries.

What We Can Do For You!

  • As of July 16, 2020, the State of Washington Department of Health Board of Massage has suspended the requirement pertaining to the number of CE hours that must be obtained through direct supervised training for this renewal period - ending December 31, 2020. Therefore, you may take all your continuing education hours through our home study programs. For more information please visit https://www.doh.wa.gov/Portals/1/Documents/2300/2020/MassageCEReqCOVID.pdf.
    • You may fulfill your minimum requirement of 4 CE hours in ethics, communication and/or Washington state massage laws and rules through our home study programs. Please note that 2 of these 4 CE hours must include professional roles and boundaries.
    • You may enroll in any of our 145+ courses to satisfy the 24 CE hour requirement. Because the Institute for Integrative Healthcare Studies is approved by the NCBTMB as a continuing education Approved Provider, the Washington Board of massage will accept these courses.
