Massage Therapy Courses Available in Idaho
Our Massage Therapy Course is designed for the serious student who wishes to have a career in an expanding health care field. We offer day and evening classes throughout the year to hopefully accommodate the many different schedules of people’s lives. We get to spend a whole year with each student to prepare them for graduation and help guide them to either a job position or start their own business. There are so many job positions available in Idaho and Washington right now that every one of our graduates has an opportunity to work right after they pass the licensing exam.
Graduates are awarded a transcript, a certificate of completion, and are then qualified to take the Massage and Bodywork Licensing exam (MBLEx). Upon successful completion of the licensing exam, students will then be prepared to work as entry-level massage therapists. The 750 hour course of study and associated practical work is well above the national average which gives the student increased confidence, more hands-on skill learning, more interaction with prospective clientele, more documentation experience, more body mechanics practice, more technique learning. We also add in 36 hours of Ethics and 57 hours of Medical Massage. AiCM massage therapy courses in Idaho are designed to prepare each student to have the academic and occupational skills necessary to work in various healthcare settings including chiropractic offices, physical therapy offices, Resorts, Spas and private practice.
Our 7 instructors from Washington and Idaho have over 100 years of combined experience in the massage and health care fields. Each one of our hands-on trainers are Licensed Massage Therapists who own and manage their own businesses. All of the classes are subject to enrollment.
