ABMP has clarification regarding the previous post on this topic. The sexual harassment prevention training can be completed in a classroom setting, by webinar, or online. This class needs to be completed prior to your next renewal. All massage therapy licenses are up for renewal by December 31, 2020, so the sexual harassment CE must be completed by your renewal.
ABMP members have on-demand access to 200+ free CE hours, including courses on sexual harassment, such as “Maintaining Sexual Ethics: Part 3-Protecting Practitioners.” We have contacted IDFPR to verify whether we are an approved provider for this new CE requirement. To date, we have yet to receive a response. We will inform you when we receive notice.
Listed below are entities identified by IDFPR that are currently authorized to provide CE training:
- State of Illinois agencies
- Federal agencies
- Illinois county agencies
- Illinois municipalities
- Accredited colleges or universities
- Any business or entity with an “Active” CE provider license issued by IDFPR
For further information in the interim, we encourage you to contact IDFPR directly: 1 (888) 473-4858.
