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, 2019 for all Florida LMTs.

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