Massage Apprenticeships Could Be Eliminated in Florida

Under current Florida law, an applicant is qualified for licensure as a massage therapist if he or she passes an approved exam and either completes a course of study at a school approved by the Massage Therapy Board or completes an apprenticeship program that meets the Board’s standards.  Under SB 1334, recently introduced in the Florida state legislature, apprenticeships would no longer serve as a qualification for licensure.  If the bill becomes law, every applicant will be required to pass a Board-approved exam and complete the required massage education at a Board-approved school.

We will keep you informed of the status of the bill.
