What are the qualifications needed for acceptance into the course?
Applicants to the course must have a Grade 12 or an equivalent level. However, it is the schools position that life experiences and background may also be considered as equivalent. Applicants must be physically able to perform the work necessary as a therapist; therefore, it is essential that applicants be free of any physical or mental disability that would impair that function. We will ask applicants to attend an interview before a representative of the College to answer any questions he or she may have. The representative will be looking to see that you show characteristics of a compassionate and caring attitude, a definite must for this field. We are professional members of the medical team, as such we will require students and alumni to conduct themselves accordingly. Maturity is a factor in the success of any therapist so we will be looking for this in applicants also. We may ask students to complete a personal evaluation form which is used to indicate personality traits of the individual. It is our intent to not deter individuals from participating in the training to be a Massage Therapist. However, we feel that it is our responsibility to help students to understand the physical and mental demands of the training in which they wish to participate.
What Science backgrounds do I need?
Unless otherwise stated, we assume that you have no previous education in the sciences. Your studies, therefore, will commence at the most elementary stage and we will explain all necessary information to you. At the end of each lesson, you are asked to answer examination questions to enable the instructors to evaluate your retention of material studied. Responses are reviewed by the examiner and any comments that may be helpful are provided. Step-by-step, you will become more proficient. After you have completed all the lessons of the course, obtaining success on your final examination paper will be well within your grasp.
