Is there a charge for the Student for a Day?
No, these are available to students investigating a career in massage therapy who wish to experience first-hand what WCCMT has to offer.
What are your prerequisites for admission into your massage therapy courses?
Applicants must have a minimum of high school graduation and grade twelve(12) English. Applicants are required to have successfully completed a three-day Introduction to Massage weekend workshop offered at WCCMT. Please see our Prerequisite Requirements page for the full list.
How can I determine if a course I have taken elsewhere will meet the prerequisite requirements at WCCMT?
If you are uncertain whether your course meets WCCMT requirements, please provide us with a copy of your transcripts and a description (course outline) of the course or courses for which you are seeking equivalency. If necessary we will conduct a prior learning assessment to determine which courses may be transferable. There is a $250 fee for this service.
