The Massage Institute of Cape Cod's 700-hour program provides a complete education for becoming a professional massage therapist. The program prepares the student to pass the Massage and Bodywork Licensing Examination (MBLEX) , to start a professional massage business and to become a successful practitioner. Any individual studying for personal interest, rather than professional licenser, is welcome to take any course offered by the school. The school also provides Continuing Education Credits for massage and fitness professionals who need to renew certifications.
Massage Institute of Cape Cod is constantly improving its program by incorporating the most recent developments and best industry practices.

A student may apply to receive credits for massage, anatomy and physiology, and related courses taken in other schools. However transcripts and certificates are required for review. You will be required to pass the exam in the specialty you are requesting credit for.
The National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) require that an applicant be qualified to take their exam. We have designed our program to assist students in accomplishing this goal. We feel it is important for graduates to strive to attain the recognition associated with NCBTMB. The National Exam Prep class was designed for this purpose. Students will review the material by taking multiple choice exams which they will be able to use as study quides.
Every massage student must do practicum work other than fellow students. The student cannot charge for these massages but may receive gratuities. The students must work at the student clinic offered at the school on a regular basis. Practicum consists of working in the Clinic under supervision, reviewing intake forms etc. Students will be required to earn practicum hours through supervised events such as sports events, charities etc. where they will practice their massage training.
Certified massage therapists may use courses as Continuing Education Credits for periodic recertification. The NCBTMB requires recertification every four years. To be recertified a massage therapist must take 50 Continuing Education Units within that time. The therapist must take 25 hours of these from NCBTMB Category A approved Providers, while 25 hours may be taken from Category B Providers. MICC is now a Category B provider and is in the process of applying to be a Category A Provider.
