AZ CE requirement currently waived . .


 Greetings AZ massage therapists, 

My license is up for renewal soon so I just went to the State of Arizona Massage Therapy website and found the above .. Today, April 4, 2021, the State of AZ is waiving the requirement for CE for this period. You still need to pay by your birthday to keep your license. This link gets you to the appropriate form for paying online. Looks like they will not send you a notice in the mail, that you need to do this online. 

Hope this helps!

Warmly,

Patrick

P.S. I am currently teaching Math at the Community College, and Building/Construction Trades. I am still certified to provide CE but I have not hosted any classes for the last 11 months. I do have a handful of virtual classes ready, and around 50 live classes still. At some point I may resume teaching CE, when there is interest again. 

In the meantime please enjoy some of my books on Amazon.

CE Live Webinars using Google Meet

The NCBTMB suggested providers switch live classes to webinars. 
I checked with the State of AZ to see if these would count for Arizona LMTs needing their Live In-Person CE hours. I was told, Yes!

Unless I figure out how to use Reiki or energy to protect everyone in the room from Covid transmission, I'm not offering CE in person until there is a vaccine. 

I look forward to seeing you (by video) again or meeting you for the first time.
