Washington Extends Continuing Education Policy—May 2022 Update

Update September 28, 2022: At the September 23, 2022, board meeting, the Washing Board of Massage voted not to extend the expiration date for Policy number BOM 20-01.6. This means that beginning January 1, 2023, licensees will have to complete eight hours of hands-on continuing education. If you have questions, email massage.therapy@doh.wa.gov.

Due to the continuing challenges related to meeting the hands-on continuing education (CE) requirement, the Washington Board of Massage extended the hands-on CE policy's expiration date. Policy number BOM 20-01.5 is effective through June 30, 2022, and will be replaced by Policy number BOM 20-01.6, which will be effective July 1, 2022, through December 31, 2022.

ABMP members have access to 200+ hours of free continuing education in the ABMP Education Center. ABMP Certified members have access to an additional 400 hours of CE through the World Massage Conference library of courses.
