  7. Successful completion of the online Medical Terminology and Body Systems course.
  8. A current resume.
  9. Two signed original character reference letters. One from a health care practitioner and one personal. References must have known you for more than two years.

    • Why do you want to practice massage therapy?
    • Discuss what has been your experience, if any, with massage therapy?
    • What do you have to offer to the massage therapy profession?
  11. A medical note from a physician indicating you are in good health and free from all communicable diseases and physically and mentally capable of undertaking this program. This can be found under the Documents & Forms tab.
  12. A passport style photo emailed to [email protected] for your student ID card.

CCMH Application Checklist

To ensure processing without delay, please follow the instructions on the application form carefully. A complete application, which meets all requirements, does not constitute a guarantee of acceptance.

Classes may fill months prior to the commencement of classes so every attempt should be made to submit your application as early as possible. Late applications will be accepted until commencement of classes if space is available. Applications received after the class is full but prior to the application deadline date may be placed on a waiting list or may request enrollment in the subsequent class.
