Do you have campus tours?
Yes. Tours of the Toronto campus can be booked by appointment by contacting Admissions at 416-322-1873 or e-mail: [email protected]
We also hold Information Sessions and offer “Student for a Day” programs for prospective students wanting to explore a career in massage therapy. High school students can arrange job-shadowing by having their school counsellor contact CCMH admissions.
Is there a charge for the Student for a Day?
No, this program is free and so are our Admissions Information Sessions. These are available to students investigating a career in massage therapy who wish to experience first-hand what CCMH has to offer.
What are your prerequisites?
Applicants must have a minimum of a high school diploma or equivalent. Applicants are required to have successfully completed a weekend Introduction to Massage workshop offered at CCMH along with an optional Medical Terminology BodySystems online course. Please see our admissions page for a full list of requirements.
How can I determine if a course I have taken elsewhere will meet the prerequisite requirements at CCMH?
If you are uncertain whether your course meets CCMH 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. We will conduct a prior learning assessment to determine which courses may be transferable. There is a $100 fee for this service.
How many instructors are there for each class?
The student teacher ratio is 12 to 1.
What if there are too many applicants for a given intake?
We deal with applications on a first come first served basis. The first students to complete their application may be offered a seat in the program. Once the applicant has reviewed the Student Manual containing all college policies, has signed the enrollment agreement, and paid the tuition deposit of $350, then and only then will a seat be guaranteed in the program. Any additional applicants over and above the maximum will be placed on a wait list or given first priority at the next intake.
