700-Hour Massage Diploma

The full-time 700-hour diploma program is offered three times a year in January, June, and September, and the part-time Evening Studies program starts in January each year.

The program is divided into two semesters of approximately 350 hours each. Each semester is a little more than four months, or eight months total for completion. This program, although designed to be a full-time, five-day-a-week program, also is open to part-time students, if space permits. All classes are based on a fifty-minute instructional hour.

Students enrolled in the full-time program attend school approximately twenty-five to thirty hours per week; those enrolled on a part-time basis attend an average often to fifteen hours per week. All classes offered in the 700-hour program are required to obtain that diploma.
