Important notes for students:
All courses are taught in a visual and hands-on approach. At the end of each course, practical examinations need to be completed by each student. Upon successful completion of the course, the student will receive a certificate accredited by The International Thai Massage School(ITM) in Chiang Mai. All students are required to receive a Thai Massage from the Teacher before the course starts. (Student prices are available) Each student must schedule a practical massage of 90 minutes at the end of the 60-hour course to be done on the teacher. (This is to make sure pressure and positioning is correct) Students will need to finish case studies after the program before receiving a certificate. If you do not finish case studies you will not receive a certificate. Both levels must be completed before any certificate is given. Students are also required to make a cut and paste practice massage for their case studies and must be checked by the teacher before allowed to do case studies. Students are required to attend 100% of classes with a minimum of 70% average to graduate. If a student misses any classes a fee of $200 per day will be charged to make up missed classes. Students must do all the homework to proceed with the exam. Students who fail an exam may challenge it the following week and no longer than a month later. A fee of $50 must be paid per exam if you fail the first time. If you fail two more times, then the student is required to retake the level with a fee of $550. A deposit of $250 must be paid in full to secure your spot. An extra charge of $95 US each level must be paid at the end of the course for your certificate from Thailand. With this, you can go to upgrade at ITM if you choose at any time. You can choose to not pay for your certificate from Thailand, but you will not be recognized by NHPC, it will not count towards CE credits and you might not be able to attain liability insurance. All courses are seen by NHPC, MTAS Canada, THAI, AAMT, NCBTMB, Thai Ministry of Health and Education, Massage and Natural Therapies Association, and count towards your continuing education.
