Please note that massage therapy laws change frequently and vary from state to state. Although we try to provide the most accurate information available, ultimately it is the responsibility of the student to contact their state licensing bureau to verify massage licensing renewal requirements.

New Mandatory Requirement! As of January, 2015, 2 CE Hours of “Recognizing Child Abuse”

Currently, we understand Pennsylvania to require the following:
24 CE hours every 2 years for license renewal on Jan. 1 (every odd year)

8 CE hours of the 24 can be taken online, including your ethics requirement

16 of the 24 must be live “in-class” hours
8 of the 24 can be obtained on-line
