I love taking these courses online. It's convenient, I study the material on my own time, it's informative and I appreciate that it is made available. Thanks for a very positive experience that is very relevant and high quality.

The Laws continue to change every year..it is a good 'requirement' course ...to keep us sharp in the field. There is a lot of information here, I have to read it very slowly to ingest it all. Our field of massage therapy has grown immensely over the last twenty years.

Even though I am not practicing in FL, it is very insightful taking this class. It is an extension of ethics, and could very well be used to fulfill that requirement for the Nationals.

This answered several of my questions that I had. Like I didn't understand: If I just received my license last year and it is to be renewed every 2 yrs. Why do I have to renew it this year?
