What is the most confusing question on the Florida Massage License Application?
“Are you applying for licensure as a Massage Therapist by Endorsement or as a Massage Therapist by Examination?”
Most therapists assume if they are transferring their license from another state, they are applying as an Endorsement candidate.
This is not always the case.
I receive calls and emails weekly from future Florida therapists who were grandfathered into licensure in another state, practice in a state with no licensing requirements, or are just confused by the lack of information regarding the Florida massage license process.
Some have already applied and checked the wrong box and now have a letter from the Board of Massage. The letter usually says: “You do not qualify for Endorsement.” Then it instructs them to either change to Examination or retract their application. This causes panic and delays for applicants.
To help clear up some confusion, I have created an infographic to help you determine the method of licensure you qualify for.
