NOTICE TO CAMTC APPLICANTS
Passage of a CAMTC approved exam is not currently required for CAMTC Certification. While the law previously imposed this requirement, the requirement to pass a CAMTC approved exam has been suspended through December 31, 2027.
In order for CAMTC to accept massage education from an out-of-state school, it must meet the requirements in the Massage Therapy Act. Detailed info is at:
Education and training received outside of California must be, at a minimum, substantially equivalent to the requirements applied to California school programs. One important aspect of educational program equivalence is whether the educational institution attended has been approved by the national, regional, or state authority with responsibility for vocational program approvals. Such status can readily be ascertained by CAMTC for each of the 50 U.S. states, U.S. territories.
