The Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards (FSMTB or "The Federation") created a proposal for the Maintenance of Core Competencies (MOCC). This proposed program would be designed to "test" current massage therapists to ensure the basic elements of public safety standards are maintained, based on current issues within the profession and with state regulatory agencies. The idea is that it would replace current continuing education requirements, yet those with interest in pursuing additional certifications or training could still utilize those resources.
The Federation has several links on their web site regarding this information under the "What's New" heading. There is an open period for public feedback. If you are interested in learning more about the MOCC proposal and providing feedback, please visit the Federation's web site at fsmtb.org
