We are excited to announce that COMTA (the Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation) awarded institutional accreditation to our school for 7 years. In addition, COMTA endorsed our curriculum, recognizing AMBI Massage School as one of the best programs in the United States for massage therapy. We are proud to see our school on the elite list of massage institutions which meet the high standards of COMTA!
What is COMTA?
COMTA, the Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation, is an accrediting body that exists to elevate massage therapy and other bodywork professions. COMTA is the only agency approved by the U.S. Department of Education as a specialized accrediting agency for massage therapy!
What Does COMTA Accreditation Involve?
The accreditation process with COMTA acknowledges that a particular school reaches COMTA’s high educational standards. Since only schools that truly deliver an excellent educational experience can receive accreditation, it’s a good gauge of the quality of an institution and program.
Accreditation by COMTA is always voluntary, and it involves a thorough review by peer professionals. Since the evaluation is done by outsiders to the institution, it is truly unbiased. It is a true reflection of the quality of the massage therapy program and massage institution.
