Advanced Massage Techniques is an approved provider in the state of Montana. All courses are valid for meeting Montana’s continuing education requirements.
It is my current understanding that Montana massage therapists are required to complete 12 CE hours every 2 years for license renewal.
From the Montana Board of Massage Therapy:
24.155.801 CONTINUING EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS
(1) The board will not preapprove continuing education programs or sponsors. Qualifying criteria for continuing education are specified in these rules. It is the responsibility of the licensee to select quality programs that contribute to his/her knowledge and competence which also meet these qualifications.
(2) A continuing education activity must meet the following criteria:
(a) The activity must have significant intellectual or practical content. The activity must deal with direct application of massage therapy knowledge, skills, business practices, or ethical standards. In addition, the board may accept continuing education activities from other professional groups or academic disciplines if the massage therapist demonstrates that the activity is substantially related to his or her role as a massage therapist.
(b) The activity itself must be conducted by an individual or group qualified by practical or academic experience.
(c) Continuing education credit earned by courses, seminars, or workshops must be supportable through a certificate of completion containing the following information:
(i) full name and credentials of the presenter, including provider number, if applicable;
(ii) title of the presentation attended;
(iii) number of hours and date of each presentation attended;
(iv) description of the presentation format; and
(v) name of licensee.
(d) It is the responsibility of the licensee to establish and maintain detailed records of continuing education compliance for a period of three years, following submission of a continuing education report.
(3) In general, one continuing education credit will be granted for each hour of participation in the continuing education activity.
(4) A licensed massage therapist must earn at least 12 continuing education credits every two consecutive years by the licensee renewal date on even numbered years beginning in 2012.
(a) No continuing education is required for licensees licensed less than one full year on their first continuing education reporting date. Licensees licensed at least one year but less than two full years on the first continuing education reporting date shall submit six hours of continuing education.
