Continuing Education

Sarasota School of Massage Therapy offers many continuing education courses for Licensed Massage Therapists.

In Florida, 24 hours of continuing education are needed to renew a professional massage therapy license every two years. At least 12 of these hours must be live in a classroom and directly relate to the practice of massage. The next renewal is August 31, 2021 for all Florida LMTs.

SSMT offers a wide range of classes for therapists looking to enhance their level of expertise.

SSMT is committed to operating as safely as possibly during this time. Class size will be limited to allow for distancing between all participants except those practicing on each other.

By enrolling in a seminar at this time, you acknowledge that the safety measures in place my impact student experience. This includes minor background noise from HEPA filtration units, as well as challenges with communication posed by face masks and shields.

SSMT is committed to providing the best experience without compromising safety. We've had several very well received seminars since we reopened for live classes last fall. We hope to see you in a class!

Unvaccinated students, instructors, administration, staff, and all visitors to SSMT will wear a face mask, with a nose-wire, that covers the nose and mouth.

Fully vaccinated students, instructors, administration, staff, and all visitors to SSMT may choose whether to wear a mask in the building.

To utilize this exception, a valid CDC vaccination card must be submitted showing at least two weeks have passed since the final dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

SSMT will supply an ASTM rated Level 3 surgical mask to anyone entering an SSMT building. As an alternative to an SSMT-supplied mask, those entering a building may bring one of these cloth masks:

  • Cotton, silk, polyester, bamboo or a blend* with a pocket for a PM 2.5 (or finer) filter
  • Cotton (2-ply or more) (with or without a filter)
  • Polyproylene or Polyproylene/Cotton (with or without a filter)

These masks are less effective at blocking virus-containing droplets and should not be worn:

  • Gaiters
  • Bandanas
  • Handkerchiefs

SSMT will provide ASTM Level 3 surgical masks to those without masks.
