Iowa Massage Board Considers Reducing CE Hours

Prior to starting formal rulemaking action, the Iowa Board of Massage Therapy has issued Draft Pre-Notice Rule Changes that would reduce the number of hours of required continuing education (CE) from 24 hours every two years to 16 hours every two years. The proposal would also replace the category A and B requirements for CE with various categories of acceptable CE, and remove the CPR and First Aid requirements for both licensure and renewal. ABMP does not oppose a reduction in the CE requirement.
