Description of Class:

In this two-hour Zoom class:

Covid-19 has created a changing landscape in every area of life, including in the area of required massage continuing education hours, as well as safe and ethical business practices. This Ethics course addresses recent law and rule changes by the Washington Board of Massage, made in June 2020--information you need to know. It also covers ethical and safe business practices during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Handouts will only be available in the zoom class chat, if you want the downloads you will need to be signed in to Zoom.

How This Class Works:
