“I often recommend Vicars when individuals question me about what massage school to attend. Graduates have been well prepared to face the challenges that they will undoubtedly encounter in the profession. Their assessment skills are excellent and they all seem to be very professional. I endorse Vicars wholeheartedly!”
Kip Petch, RMT and CSMTA member
“From a practitioner’s standpoint, being trained to the same minimum standard as everyone else in the country is huge. But there are schools that, unfortunately, aren’t going to do it until they have to. That’s why it’s such an advantage what Vicars has done [to voluntarily meet the national curriculum standard]. You didn’t have to, but you did. It shows the commitment you have to the profession at large—and it was not a small undertaking.”
Christy Pritchard, Former Executive Director of the Massage Therapist Association of Alberta
