The Board of Massage Therapy hereby gives notice:
Of an Order regarding the Petition for Variance for Kimberly A. Parker, LMT filed on May 30, 2008. The Notice of Petition for Variance was published in Vol. 34, No. 24, of the June 13, 2008, Florida Administrative Weekly. The Petition requested a Variance or Waiver of paragraph 64B7-28.009(30)(a), Florida Administrative Code, with respect to the 12 continuing education hours via live classroom instruction which includes hands-on instruction or demonstration. The Board considered the Petition at a duly-noticed public meeting held on July 24, 2008.
The Board’s Order, filed on August 20, 2008, denies the Petition for Variance or Waiver, finding that the rule requirements from which Petitioner seeks relief are statutory requirements. Petitioner failed to demonstrate and does not demonstrate that application of the rule to her circumstances would violate principles of fairness or would cause a substantial economic or other hardship.
A copy of the Order or additional information may be obtained by contacting:
Anthony Jusevitch, Executive Director, Board of Massage Therapy, 4052 Bald Cypress Way, Bin #C06, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3256.
