Renewal of Licenses

When renewing a license each licensee shall document the successful completion of the required board-aproved continuing education credits. Twenty-four (24) hours of training shall be required for each two (2) year renewal period. Only human related continuing education is accepted.

A maximum of twelve (12) additional hours may be carried over into the next renewal period. Courses may include ethics, business practices, science, and techniques related to massage therapy.Every renewal cycle, you must document at least (3) hours in ethics.

Documentation for Renewal of Licenses

If your renewal form is stamped “Audit”, you must attach copies of all of your CE certificates or documentation verifying your attendance. If you renew online you must still send hard copies of your documentation to the KBLMT.

If your renewal form is not stamped “Audit” – do not attach copies of documentation, and do not send in copies if you renew online.

Processing of Renewals

License renewals cannot be processed until 60 days prior to the expiration

*THE ONLINE LICENSE RENEWAL PROCESS HAS BEEN RESTORED*

Online license renewal is available once again. Hopefully most of the bugs have been worked

out of the new program and your renewal will be easy. Here are some helpful tips.

1. You must first complete Kentucky’s One Stop Portal Registration. Directions for doing

so are on the Homepage of the KBLMT website, http://bmt.ky.gov Follow those

directions carefully.

2. The process is complete when your payment is received. Acceptance of payment does

not mean that your license has been renewed but it DOES mean that you have

completed the online process successfully.

3. Check your online renewal by going to http://bmt.ky.gov select online verification,

select the Kentucky Board of Massage Therapy and follow the instructions.

AUDITS OF RENEWAL APPLICATIONS

4. Even after you have completed the renewal process, you may receive a letter from the

KBLMT saying that your application is being audited. Audits are randomly done

following review of the applications.

5. OPEN AND READ ALL CORRESPONDANCE FROM THE KBLMT; IT MAY BE AN AUDIT

LETTER. If you fail to respond to an audit, your license may be terminated!

6. If you receive an audit request, FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS EXACTLY IN THE LETTER

AND WITHIN THE TIME LIMIT GIVEN. Late response may result in late fees, fine or even

termination!

7. Remember, being audited is random; it doesn’t mean that you have done anything

wrong. Just send copies of your CE verification documents to the KBLMT at the address

shown in the letter.

8. Above all, DO NOT CALL THE KBLMT office. All correspondence should be in writing.
