1000 Hour Distance Learning Certificate
Program Start Dates:
September & March of each year
At the Alberta Institute of Massage, we believe strongly in preparing our graduates of the 1000-hour Certificate Program with a strong education base that goes far beyond relaxation training.
Anatomy & Physiology - all of the body systems are included with more emphasis being placed on the skeletal, muscular, nervous, and circulatory systems.
Massage Practical - basic relaxation massage to the full-body, progressing to studies in trigger point therapy, assessment, injury care, treatment for specific conditions, PNF stretching, sports massage - level 1, business for the massage therapist, and other related studies.
Course information is delivered during the onsite sessions at the school and supplemented with take-home assignments, research projects, and practicum hours during the weeks in between training sessions. Quizzes, exams, presentations, and practicums are completed during the training weekends.
Classroom hours are from Friday to Sunday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., one weekend per month with one additional six-day session during the program. The first weekend is a Saturday and Sunday.
Distance/part-time training students are welcome to utilize the school facilities and learning aids for study.
