Oregon Extends Massage Therapy CE Requirements and Late Fee Waiver—Effective July 1, 2021

The Oregon State Board of Massage Therapists voted to extend the waiver that removes late fees for license renewals and to keep continuing education requirements at the statutorily required 12 hours to assist licensed massage therapists during the transition into a post-COVID-19 working environment.

Proposed Oregon Massage CE Changes

The Oregon Board of Massage Therapists (OBMT) is proposing changes to the continuing education (CE) rules for massage therapists. The proposed changes include reducing the required number of CE hours from 25 to 12 hours bi-annually, among other changes. The CE proposals will be addressed at the regular OBMT Board meeting on September 17, 2018. Click here for the draft rules containing the CE proposals (scroll to page 13).
