IDAHO BOARD OF MASSAGE THERAPY 


CONTINUING EDUCATION

 All licensees must comply with the following continuing education requirements:

Beginning with the second renewal of their license, a licensee shall be required to complete a minimum of six (6) hours of continuing education (which shall include 1.0 hour in ethics) within the preceding twelve (12) months that meet the requirements in Sections 501, 502 and 503 of the rules. For a full review of the CE requirement please click here.

You should review the Board rules regarding continuing education before signing up for any continuing education offerings.  If you have questions about the continuing education requirements, you may e-mail the Board at: mas@ibol.idaho.gov

The continuing education rules may be reviewed by clicking on the Licensure Rules link located on the left. The Board will accept continuing education that is germane to the practice of massage therapy as defined by law in Idaho Code 54-4002. Please note that because the Board does not regulate items exempted in Idaho Code 54-4003, courses or portions of courses in those areas are not approved. Verify with your instructor how many credits offered meet state law. See Rules 501 (Approval of Continuing Education Courses), 502 (Continuing Education Activities), and 503 (Content of Continuing Education).

CE providers and/or licensees may request Board approval by submitting a completed Education Approval Application form. Please note, you may verify Board approved courses by accessing the link below.

Approved Courses

THIS LIST IS NOT COMPREHENSIVE. Please see Rules 501-503 for more information about acceptable continuing education classes.

AUDITS

The Board conducts annual audits to insure compliance with the continuing education requirements.  Audits may be initiated anytime after you renew your license.  By signing your renewal application, and answering "Yes" to the question that you have met the continuing education requirements, you are certifying to the Board that you have already obtained proof of having completed the required continuing education. 

IF YOU HAVE NOT YET MET THE CONTINUING EDUCATION REQUIREMENT, DO NOT SUBMIT A RENEWAL APPLICATION INDICATING THAT YOU HAVE.  Submitting a fraudulent application for licensure is grounds for discipline against your right to practice.

If you are audited, you must submit a listing of all continuing education courses completed during the previous year AND proof of attendance documentation for each course.  Failure to submit the required documentation may result in Board action against your right to licensure.
