Registered Massage Therapy

Diploma 88 weeks

CDI College’s Registered Massage Therapy (RMT) program is the best way to get job-ready training for a fulfilling and lucrative career in massage.

Train at the Best School for Massage Therapy

Becoming an RMT requires hands-on training, and in the Registered Massage Therapy program at CDI College, you’ll be fully prepared to provide massage therapy services to clients with differing needs – everyone from slip-and-fall injuries to long-term degenerative conditions.

Your massage therapy courses will teach you about human anatomy and physiology, surgery, medications, nutrition, therapeutic exercise, hydrotherapy, arthrology, RMT regulation and business practices, and more.


Program Description

We currently offer a full-time program of 88 weeks, comprising eight semesters. Each semester is 11 weeks long, with typically 1-2 week breaks in between. Students attend school five days a week, typically from 8:30am-4:00pm, with the occasional evening and weekend clinical shifts.
