Advanced Massage Techniques is an approved provider in the state of Virginia. All courses are valid for meeting Virginia’s continuing education requirements.
It is my current understanding that Virginia massage therapists are required to hold current certification by the NCBTMB, or complete 24 CE hours every 2 years for license renewal, of which, 1 CE Hour must be in massage ethics.
From the Virginia Board of Nursing:
18VAC90-50-75. Continuing competency requirements
A. In order to renew a certificate biennially, a certified massage therapist shall:
1. Hold current certification by the NCBTMB; or
2. Complete at least 24 hours of continuing education or learning activities with at least one hour in professional ethics. Hours chosen shall be those that enhance and expand the skills and knowledge related to the clinical practice of massage therapy and may be distributed as follows:
a. A minimum of 12 of the 24 hours shall be in activities or courses provided by an NCBTMB-approved provider and may include seminars, workshops, home study courses, and continuing education courses.
b. No more than 12 of the 24 hours may be activities or courses that may include consultation, independent reading or research, preparation for a presentation, a course in cardiopulmonary resuscitation or other such experiences that promote continued learning.
You may visit the Virginia Board of Nursing to verify this information, or to learn more regarding Virginia massage laws and regulations.
