AN ACT CONCERNING THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH'S RECOMMENDATIONS REGARDING MASSAGE THERAPIST QUALIFICATIONS

SUMMARY: This act requires an applicant for a massage therapist license to successfully complete an examination prescribed by the Department of Public Health. Prior law required such applicants to successfully complete the National Certification Examination for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, which is no longer offered.

Existing law also requires license applicants to graduate from an accredited massage therapy school that meets specified criteria.

The act also makes technical and conforming changes.
