How do codes, laws, rules and regulations affect your practice of massage and bodywork? In this course, you are presented with a detailed view of the laws and rules of the Florida Board of Massage Therapy and how they apply to the massage therapy business. The course covers chapters 480, 456 and Rule Chapter 64B7 required per the continuing education rules as presented by the Florida Board of Massage Therapy.
(NOTE: This course is required for Florida Massage licensure renewal.)
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.
- Janet Drury, LMT, NCTMB
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.
- Deborah Schick, BS, LMT, NCTMB
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?
- Glenda McFall, LMT
This is the most difficult content for me to remember each renewal term since I am not great at legal jargon and remembering statutes. I find it extremely helpful to review the laws and policies every two years. Thank you so much for making this course easy to use to refresh my memory and help me stay on target with policies and statutes necessary for my practice.
