ACCREDITATION IS IMPORTANT – HERE’S WHY

Not every school is accredited. Before you choose your college, please do your research. If your college is not accredited, you may not qualify to take the MBLEx exam to be a professional massage therapist. An accredited college means that it has undergone a rigorous review to meet the accreditation standards and to ensure educational quality.

Fremont College is:
accredited by ACCSC (Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges) and;
approved by CAMTC (California Massage Therapy Council): SCH0063

Our Class Schedules Work With Yours

Most of our students are here for a career change and a better life. As a busy adult learner, we understand that you need a program that is flexible. That is why we offer both day and night classes. And to ensure that you graduate on time, you won’t have to fight to register for classes every quarter. After you’re accepted, we register you in all of your courses. That way, you know your class schedule every quarter and can plan your life accordingly. Choose a college that understands that your class schedule must fit your already busy lifestyle.

This is the reason why your Sports & Rehabilitation Therapy associate degree program can be completed in 15 months, not several years.

Be Prepared to Take MBLEx Licensing Exam and Become Certified to Practice

There have been significant changes to the certification process to become a licensed massage and bodywork therapist. Fremont College has diligently stayed on top of these changes to fully prepare our graduates to pass the MBLEx exam. This exam is required for California Massage Therapy Council (CAMTC) Certification so that you can legally practice as a professional massage therapist in California.
