Delivering Nationally-Recognized Competency-Based Training
Upon successful completion of our competency-based program, graduates are prepared to confidently sit and successfully complete provincial exams, including the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) and the College of Massage Therapists of Newfoundland and Labrador’s (CMTNL) registration examinations for entry to practice as a Registered Massage Therapist.
We offer Massage Therapy Diploma students the flexibility of three start times:
First Option: a 21 month program, starting in late August, which has a Christmas break and a summer holiday.
Second Option: a 16 month Fast Track program, with a late April 2018 start date, in which students attend classes right through the summer months.
Third Option: Online-Onsite Blended Program. This program starts every May and takes 3 1/2 years to complete.
For the onsite options, classes are full time: Monday through Friday, from 8:30 am to 3:15 pm.
In addition, during Terms 2 -4, students complete their student clinic and community clinic internships after class hours, one to two evenings per week.
The first two years of the Online-Onsite Blended Program are completed online, one course at a time. Once the online courses are successfully completed, students attend practical classes onsite, here in Halifax, over a 16 month period. These classes are held during regular class hours: 8:30am to 3:15pm, with one to two clinics nights a week.
