A Rewarding Career
in a Growing Field
RMT Education that Meets the Highest National Standards
At Vicars School of Massage Therapy, you will get a massage therapy education that meets the highest national standards—on a schedule that fits your life.
Our 2200-hour massage therapy program will prepare you for a successful massage career no matter where you live or how you want to learn. We offer both full-time blended-learning and full-time daily classes.
Our blended-learning classes require you to be in a classroom four days a month for intensive, hands-on instruction. Outside of these class dates, you will work from home, following our exclusive materials online on the Moodle platform. You can choose between monthly or weekly classes and between our campuses in Edmonton or Calgary—whichever is the most convenient option for you and your family.
This flexible schedule means there’s no need to relocate to pursue your dream of becoming a registered massage therapist (RMT). Our Calgary massage therapy school is located in the northwest in the Country Hills area. Our Edmonton campus is on the south side on Calgary Trail, just north of the Edmonton Commons shopping district.
Our program follows the highest Canadian massage therapy education standards: we have full accreditation status from the Canadian Massage Therapy Council for Accreditation. Our instructors are successful practicing massage therapists who bring real-world experience to the material they teach. Small class sizes and custom-made learning materials mean you get plenty of personalized instruction, and all the support you need in and out of the classroom.
At Vicars, you’ll also get real-world experience beyond the classroom. At our supervised public clinic, you’ll practice your massage skills on a variety of clients, while learning what it’s like to work in a professional massage therapy clinic.
We are continuously improving our curriculum and teaching methods based on the latest research and changes in the massage therapy industry, so you can feel secure that your training will prepare you to pursue a rewarding and successful massage career. Vicars School of Massage Therapy is a Massage Therapist Association of Alberta (MTAA) approved program.
Financial Aid is available to those who qualify.
