Colorado law started requiring licensure in April of 2009. The State of Colorado now requires a student to graduate from a school such as ours and register with the state.
Upon successful completion of the program, students are granted a Certificate in Massage Therapy that is not intended as a license to practice Massage Therapy. Graduates MUST adhere to the current law and/or regulations of the appropriate state, county, or city agencies of the locality, in which they intend to practice.
Each state has its own laws and licensing requirements and the Academy makes no guarantee of fulfilling their requirements. It is up to each student to gain licensure (if required) in the state of intended practice. However, many states recognize the National Certification Board (NCBTMB) and the Federation of State Massage Therapy Board licensing exam (MBLEx) exam/license and you can qualify to sit for that exam upon graduation from the Academy’s Massage Therapy program.
The Academy of Natural Therapy prepares and pays for you to take the NCBTMB or MBLEX.
