Certification and Licensing:

Certified Massage Therapists from Minnesota may apply for massage licenses in their field of expertise in other states if applicable. 47 states recognize and accept online training, while Colorado, Connecticut and Michigan do not. Graduates must comply with each state’s laws and rules to become licensed. Licensing and certification guidelines in the state of Minnesota are determined by each individual city. PMA will provide resource assistance as available about specific city guidelines. PMA prepares all graduates to become a massage therapist in entry-level positions at massage clinics, spas, chiropractic offices and hospitals, as well as the opportunity to start their own business.
