As of April 2018, I have discontinued my affiliation with the NCBTMB as an approved provider. As such, Advanced Massage Techniques is no longer an approved provider in the State of Illinois.
It is my current understanding that Illinois massage therapists are required to complete 24 CE hours every 2 years for license renewal, of which, 12 CE Hours may be completed in an online or home study format. Additionally, 2 CE Hours must consist of ethics.
From the Illinois Massage Therapy Board:
Section 1284.90 Continuing Education
1) Beginning with the December 31, 2008 renewal and every renewal thereafter, in order to renew a license, a licensee shall be required to complete 24 hours of continuing education, including at least 2 hours of ethics.
2) Up to 12 hours of CE credit per renewal may be earned as follows:
A) For completion of a self‑study course that is offered by an approved sponsor who meets the requirements set forth in subsection (c). Each self‑study course shall include an examination.
