Advanced Massage Techniques is an approved provider in the state of Pennsylvania. All courses are valid for meeting Pennsylvania’s continuing education requirements.
It is my current understanding that Pennsylvania massage therapists are required to complete 24 CE hours every 2 years for license renewal, of which, 8 CE Hours may be completed in an online or home study format. A minimum of 4 CE Hours must consist of professional ethics.
From the Pennsylvania State Board of Massage Therapists:
20.32. Continuing education hours, maintenance of certificates of completion.
(a) Licensees shall complete a minimum of 24 hours of continuing education in the field of massage therapy as set forth in section 4(6) of the act (63 P. S. § 627.4(6)) and § 20.33 (related to continuing education content and providers) in the 2-year period immediately preceding the application for license renewal. To be creditable, continuing education must meet the requirements for Board approval set forth in this section and § 20.33.
(b) Licensees shall complete a minimum of 4 hours of continuing education in professional ethics in each biennial renewal period.
(c) A minimum of 16 hours of continuing education shall be earned through contact hours.
(d) Courses for the renewal of the licensee’s CPR certification shall be earned through contact hours and may not be used to meet the biennial continuing education requirement.
