For the first time ever, ACC is offering a Certified Massage Therapy program. The program is designed to prepare students for an exciting career in massage therapy.  Completing this program will prepare the students to work with chiropractors, in health clubs, gyms, day spas, corporate settings, massage clinics or own their own business. 

 

Massage Therapy is one of the fastest growing and most diverse occupations in the health care industry.  Massage Therapists help with everything from stress management to injury rehabilitation.

 

Students who complete this course will be prepared and eligible to take the NCETMB (National Certification Exam for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork), the exam required to obtain a license in Connecticut. 

 

The Certified Massage Therapy program is a non-credit program.  The program will take approximately 1 year to complete full time or approximately 2 years part time.  Full time, one year class hours are Tuesday- Friday 9am-2:30pm.  Two-year Saturday classes will be held 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.  All classes must be completed prior to receiving a certificate to be eligible to apply for the certification exam.  Continuous enrollment is underway now.

 

Asnuntuck Community College also offers a children’s reading room which provides childcare free of charge to daytime students. Children must be at least 3 years of age to attend.
