The board shall, upon the application of any school desiring to teach massage therapy,
inspect the school and notify the governing body thereof in writing if the school
is approved for licensure by the board or, if not, what action the school must take
in order to be licensed by the board. The application shall be on a form furnished by the board, which application shall
be signed and sworn to by the applicant. Each application shall be accompanied by a fee as prescribed by the secretary of
administration and finance in accordance with section 3B of chapter 7. Licenses to operate a massage school shall be valid for a period determined by the
commissioner of the division of occupational licensure and may be renewed for a like
period upon application therefor on forms to be furnished by the board. The fee for each renewal shall be determined under the aforementioned provision. The board shall further establish standards to be met by the massage therapy school
and shall require the school to maintain a curriculum that meets the criteria established
by the board. When in the opinion of the board the standards have been met by the school, the
school shall be licensed. No school or entity may teach massage therapy unless licensed by the board. No person may instruct in a massage school unless he is licensed by the board. If at any time a licensed school has in the opinion of the board lowered its standards
below those established by the board or violated any law, rule or regulation of the
board, the license may, after notice and an opportunity for hearing, be revoked by
the board. Any applicant aggrieved by the refusal of the board to license a massage school
may seek review in the superior court under chapter 30A.
