Renew your Professional License

The number one question for online renewals seems to be - " THE SYSTEM IS TELLING ME I DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH CE'S. WHAT DO I DO?" - Please read the "Yellow" box on the application above the CE information.  You must upload your CE Certificate in order for your application to go through.

Courtesy Reminder....

Please verify your CE Certificate contains all information as specified in LAC, Title 46, Part XLIV, Chapter 37, 3703 (C) (2) to avoid application denial.  To avoid a late fee, applications must be approved prior to March 31st.  

Continuing Education must be Louisiana Board approved and must be taken 04/01 - 03/31 of the year in which you are renewing.  For example, if you are renewing for 2020, the CEs must have been taken 04/01/19 - 03/31/2020.

The expiration date for all Louisiana Board of Massage Therapy licenses is March 31st each year.

You may find this information in LAC, Title 46, Part XLIV, Chapter 17, 1701 (B) ("Louisiana Law" tab, Rules).  Please review all information in the Practice Act and Rules for all changes.  It is important for all Massage Therapists to be aware of all laws that govern the profession.
