Continuing Education Complete for this Year

This week I completed my continuing education credits for 2011.  It's always good to be in compliance with licensing requirements well in advance of expiration time :)  As a massage therapist licensed in Illinois, I need to have 12 hours of continuing education credits.  Each State has its own requirements.  I also need to have 48 hours of continuing education every 4 years for re-certification for the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork.  It's not a huge burden.  Most professions require more, and it is always useful to go through the ethics guidance on professional boundaries - because that's something we have to be aware of constantly.
