§ 627.6. Biennial renewal of license
(a) Duration of license.--A license shall be valid for two years. The expiration date shall be established by regulation of the board. Application for renewal of a license shall be forwarded to an individual holding a current license prior to the expiration date of the current renewal.
(b) Procedure.--To renew a license, a licensee must do all of the following:
(1) File a renewal application with the board which includes the following:
(i) Current certification to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
(ii) Certification of successful completion of a minimum of 24 hours of continuing education in the field of massage therapy during the immediately preceding two years. Certification of continuing education credit hours submitted by the massage therapist shall be properly signed as being correct and true.
(2) Pay a fee established by regulation of the board.
(c) Inactive status.--Any person licensed under this act may request an application for inactive status. The application may be completed and returned to the board; upon receipt of each application, the applicant shall be maintained on inactive status without fee and shall be entitled to apply for an active license at any time. An application to reactivate a license which has been placed on inactive status for less than five years shall be accompanied by a verification of nonpractice, the renewal fee and documentation evidencing the satisfactory completion of the continuing education requirement for the preceding biennial period. Any person who requests an active status license who has been on inactive status for a period of five consecutive years or longer shall, prior to receiving an active license, satisfy the requirements of the board's regulations for ensuring continued competence and remit the required fee. A person shall not be denied active status as a result of any increased educational requirements for licensure since the time he or she received his or her original license.
(d) Reporting of multiple licensure.--A licensee who is licensed to practice massage therapy in another jurisdiction shall report this information to the board on the license renewal application. Any disciplinary action taken in another jurisdiction shall be reported to the board on the license renewal application or within 90 days of final disposition, whichever is sooner. Multiple licensure shall be noted by the board on the licensee's record, and the other licensing jurisdiction shall be notified by the board of any disciplinary actions taken against the licensee in this Commonwealth.
