Massage Therapy Trade Schools
Trade schools can be a great avenue for some students because they offer flexibility. With full and part time programs students are able to choose a program that fits their needs.
Unlike college programs that require you to take English and Math, trade schools focus on the material that NYS mandate’s. Individuals who find traditional college classes intimidating often do well in trade school programs due to the way the material is taught. Subject’s such as Anatomy and Physiology are taught to students in a why that show students how it is relevant to massage therapy.
Full and part time programs require just as much commitment as college programs. Most schools have high test standards and require students to pass each test with a 75% or higher. This is important because NYS requires you to score 75% or higher to pass their written licensing exam.
Hours a week spent in class depends on the program you are enrolled in. The shorter a program the more hours in the day/week are required. NYS requires that students receive a minimum of 1000 hours of class room training in specific subjects. To see a complete summery of the requirements please click on NYS requirements on this page.
