MMC is now offering an Accelerated Program that will enable students to meet LMT requirements in four months. This program includes 708 clock hours over a 16-week period. It is intensive and immersive–only suitable for students who can devote themselves fully to program activities during the four months they are enrolled. A key benefit of this concentrated effort is being able to work full-time as a licensed massage therapist in less than five months after beginning the program, earning money in your new profession much sooner than is possible through most massage education programs. This program is designed to meet licensure requirements in 40 of the 45 states that require licensure for massage therapists, and MMC is prepared to serve students from throughout the US.
This program is particularly intended for those who plan to begin their new career working for well established massage businesses offering the benefits of ongoing professional development and learning from more experienced colleagues and mentors. Initial employment with massage studios or spas allows new therapists to focus on improving their skills without the distractions and challenges of fulfilling multiple roles associated with starting their own business right out of school.
