The TC-CMTA supports not only a minimum two-year curriculum of instruction as a standard for the profession of Massage Therapy in Alberta, but a curriculum that is aligned to the Inter-jurisdictional Entry to Practice Competency Profile for Massage Therapists of the profession along with a number of other measures that the TC-CMTA feels are important to students enrolled in these programs.
To be approved, a curriculum must meet the Inter-jurisdictional Entry to Practice Competency Profile for Massage Therapists which are evident in student learning outcomes. Occupational_Competency_Profile_Sept_2016
