Accreditation is a voluntary process that identifies and acknowledges educational programs and/or institutions for achieving and maintaining a level of quality, performance and integrity that meets meaningful standards. A school that decides to become accredited does a comprehensive, in-depth study of the quality of its education, administrative practices, curriculum, student affairs, faculty competence and relationships with employers. Only after an on-site visit and a commission review to verify that the school meets the standards may the program and/or institution be accredited.
The Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy is accredited by the Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation (COMTA). It is the only school in Connecticut accredited by COMTA.
CCMT is approved by the Connecticut Commissioner of Higher Education as a private occupational school.
