Massage Therapist Training Colorado

Massage Therapist Requirements in Colorado

In order to become a licensed massage therapist in the State of Colorado, you must:

  • Complete a 500-hour massage therapist training course and
  • Provide evidence of a passing score on either the MBLEx or NCBTMB exam.

After you successfully pass the MBLEx exam, you should then submit fingerprints to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation in order to conduct a state and national background check. The results of the background check are available for a limited time. Thus, you should then immediately submit an application to become a therapist. You must complete the application online with the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies and pay a fee of $80 via credit card or electronic check. The application checklist and appropriate links can be found here.

The following items must also be provided:

  • Proof of $50,000 liability insurance;
  • Social Security number; and
  • Completion of a Healthcare Professions Profile (HPPP)

As of this writing, massage therapists are not required to complete continuing education to renew their license every two years.
