Massage Therapy Program Staff

Our faculty has over 26 years experience in massage therapy program and most are LMT’s with private practices. Upon graduation, you will be qualified to sit for the National Certification Exam (NCE) provided by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) or the Massage and Bodywork Licensing Exam (MBLEX) provided by the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards (FSMTB) to obtain licensure.

Utah is one of 44 states (with more states joining soon) that requires statewide professional licensing. Requirements for licensing in Utah are: 1.) graduation from an approved school, 2.) passing either the NCE or MBLEX licensing exam, and 3.) passing the Utah law exam. Other states may vary in education and licensing requirements.
