Massage Therapist Screening
All massage therapists MUST complete a fingerprinting and background screening!!
Did you know that as of July 1st, 2014 all massage therapists and establishment owners are now required to complete a fingerprinting and background screening?
All massage therapists and establishment owners MUST comply with this new provision by the January 31st, 2015 deadline.
N.B.: Make sure that the provider you select for the fingerprinting and background screening will include an onsite photo. Those submitting without the photo will be required to repeat every 2 years. Those submitting with the onsite photo will only be required to comply and submit one time.
