Massage Therapist Training in New Jersey

To start off on the path of becoming a licensed massage therapist in New Jersey you need to go to school.  Not just any school will do, it has to be an approved New Jersey massage school that will give you at least 500 hours of training.

Secondly you must pass a national exam.  You have the option of either the NCETM or the NCETMB in New Jersey.

The last thing you need to know about licensing is that if you do get a license it will expire every 2 years so you must complete 20 hours of continuing education and pay a fee during this period to retain it.
