Georgia COVID-19 Update: Online CE allowed for courses taken after September 24

On August 28, 2020, the Georgia Board of Massage Therapy approved emergency rules that allow online continuing education (CE) to be counted toward licensure requirements during the 2020 renewal period. The governor and attorney general approved these emergency rules effective September 24, 2020, and the Board updated the rules on their website when they learned of the approval and the effective date on September 29, 2020.

According to the rule, online CE classes will be accepted in lieu of the live requirement for CE taken between September 24 and October 31, 2020. This only applies to those who apply for renewal after September 24, 2020.

These online CE courses must be NCBTMB approved to count toward licensure. All ABMP CE courses are free to our members and are NCBTMB approved. Find all our courses at, and be sure to attend the online ABMP CE Summit at
