Apply Your New Skills at Your Internship
What better way to learn than by doing something? The Massage Therapy program at Branford Hall requires that each student complete an internship. During the internship, you will participate in supervised clinical massage therapy, client assessment, and record keeping theory and practice. You will have the opportunity to incorporate the techniques you learned during your coursework. This gives you on-the-job training and builds your resume before you have even completed your training. This is one more way that Branford Hall students come prepared to their first job.
Massage Therapy and Certification
As massage therapy grows in popularity, more states are adopting licensing requirements for massage therapists, and often these requirements include passing a certification exam.
At Branford Hall, we encourage graduates of the program to take the national certification exam through the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards (FSMTB)¹.
While our courses are designed to prepare our graduates for this exam, the exam is not offered by Branford Hall. It is the graduate’s responsibility to register for the exam through the NCBTMB’s website.
Depending on your campus and your career focus, you may be encouraged to take additional state licensing exams as well. Earning a certification and license will give you the added advantage of entering your new job field with proven skills.
¹Students at the Connecticut campuses must take the national exam and then apply for their license.
