MTAA School Approval Program 

The MTAA School Approval Program has been designed to confirm that institutions are ensuring students have been trained to the Interjurisdictional Standards created by FOMTRAC, in a safe and ethical education environment.  As such, this will support Massage Therapy in the province of Alberta, and all future members of the MTAA in achieving successful careers as Massage Therapists in the province.

The MTAA School Approval Program consists of two stages. The first is an administrative application, involving the submission of key documents to be reviewed by the School Approval Committee.  The second stage consists of an on-site visit by representatives of the MTAA.  If the evaluation proves the educational program does not meet the standards, the institution will be granted the opportunity to elevate its program, implement any necessary adjustments, and request an additional site visit. All approved and conditionally approved schools will be listed on our website as each stage is achieved.

Once an institution has successfully achieved a passing evaluation, graduates from the program can apply to gain membership with the MTAA. 

The MTAA is dedicated to working with all schools to ensure that the Massage Therapy students of Alberta are meeting the national standards for massage therapy education. To learn more about the process, please contact the MTAA office.
