With the first mandatory license renewal right around the corner, you want to be sure that you are on the right track. You don’t want any surprises when you renew your license! It’s especially important that you understand the requirement “relevant to and focus on massage therapy techniques” as it is not a requirement you can fulfill at the last minute (keep reading to learn more).
We want to go over all of your requirements so you know what is expected of you each biennium. Below is a chart of your CE requirements (first time license renewals may differ):
What if this is my first renewal?
If this is your first license renewal, you are required to complete a 2 hour Medical Error course. You will also need 1 hour of General CE for every month that you’ve held the license. The one hour per month is not literal. You are required to have a total of 1 hour per month. For example, if licensed for 12 months, you will need 12 total hours, which must include two hours in the prevention of medical errors.
No specific subject area is required for the first renewal of a Florida Massage Therapy license, but all must be taken with approved providers. To find approved providers, you can use our Course Search (educational providers are required to report completed CE for you). Or you can read our blog listing some of the top educational providers among Massage Therapists. Read that HERE.
