Please note that all courses available on CE Massage® will be displayed regardless of acceptance for a specific state, category, or licensing approval. Approval for each course/package in each state is not guaranteed. Even if the provider is directly approved by the state, not all courses may be approved (provider numbers are on each certificate regardless of approval). CE Massage® offers exclusively online courses and does not provide webinars, live, in-person, mailed, or video options. You must verify all information, requirements, renewal information, accepted and not accepted courses, number of hours, and specific categories required by your massage renewing entity/board before placing any order. Ordering from CE Massage® does not exempt you from renewing and paying renewal fees for your massage licenses/certifications. Note: Information is subject to change. The above information is on a "state" level. Be sure to check your local city and county regulations, as they may require continuing education or have specific licensing and/or renewal requirements. Laws and Rules frequently change. If you see any errors, please contact us so that we may correct the information listed above.
Florida, Georgia, South Carolina & Tennessee: For Licensed Massage Therapists, we submit credits for each accepted course directly to your Board in these specific states; however, this submission is made for those who have entered their License Number with the Associated State listed within their account before taking an exam.
Louisiana: For licensed Massage Therapists who have their license number and Louisiana selected within their account, we submit credits to LA for each approved course. Louisiana Therapists Notice: Visit to view our current list of approved courses before taking an exam (as course listings can change); no exchanges or refunds will be granted. Only courses on our LA webpage with an LCEU number are approved for LA. We do not submit credit for courses not approved by Louisiana.
For all other states, entities, and board certifications, it is your responsibility to submit credits to your appropriate licensing/certification board for each accepted course by your board. While we do our best to provide current and accurate information, it is ultimately your responsibility to ensure acceptance. Generally, you must submit the certificates during the renewal process or upon being audited. Your latest certificates are available in your account.
