Massage Therapy CE Requirements


Our Massage Therapy CE Courses Approved for Delaware

The amount of Continuing Education (CE) that you are required to complete depends on when your license was issued during the full licensure period. If this is your first renewal, and you are licensed:

  • less than one year – you are not required to do CE
  • more than one year, but less than two years – you are required to complete 12 hours of approved CE

Active Massage Therapist’s and Technician’s must complete 24 hours of approved CE during each full licensure renewal periods between September 1, 2018 and August 31, 2020 even-numbered years (2018-2020, etc.).
The CE must include at least:

  • 3 hours in Ethics, which may be taken in a classroom or online
  • 9 hours of Core credits – which must be taken in a classroom hands-on setting
  • 12 hours of Elective or Core credits which may be taken online

Online Courses cannot make up more than 50% of your total CE hours, the remaining 50% must be in a classroom hands-on setting. All courses must be approved by NCBTMB, AMTA or Delaware Board of Massage and Bodywork.

You may take our 3 hour online Ethics course to satisfy your Ethics requirement and any of our other massage therapy CE courses to satisfy your 12 hours of elective courses
