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. These 4 CE hours and 12 more CE hours may be taken through home study programs.
If you would like to verify this information, or have further questions regarding your massage therapy continuing education requirements, we suggest contacting the Washington Board of Massage directly. The telephone number for the Washington Board is 360-236-4847 or visit their website at http://apps.leg.wa.gov/WAC/default.aspx?cite=246-830-475.
The Institute for Integrative Healthcare Studies is approved by the NCBTMB as a continuing education Approved Provider (#049478-00). All of our continuing education programs can be used for National Certification renewal.
