Successfully meet your CE requirementsContinuing Education certificate of completion

The Board of Massage issued Policy Statement BOM 20-01, Continuing Education Requirements During the COVID-19 Response, to address the effect COVID-19 response measures are having on licensed massage therapists meeting the hands-on continuing education requirement. Massage therapists must still complete 24 hours of CE, but the board will accept any combination of hours in subsection (2) of WAC 246-830-475 in lieu of the hands-on CE. This policy expired on December 31, 2021.

Due to the continuing challenges related to meeting the hands-on CE requirement, the board extended the policy’s expiration date.  Policy Statement BOM 20-01.1 took effect January 1, 2021, and will be effective through June 30, 2021, or until the declared state of emergency issued under Proclamation 20-05 is rescinded, whichever is later.

If your license expires after the policy’s expiration date but you complete your CE in accordance with the policy while it is still in effect, you will be following your CE requirements.

The policy applies to both license renewals and license reactivations.
