Schooling and Licensing Requirements in Vermont
There are some education and examination requirements to obtain a license to practice massage therapy in the state of Vermont.
You will need to complete a minimum of 500 hours education at an approved school. You will cover various areas as part of the curriculum as guided by your school.
There are currently no requirements to pass one of the nationally recognized exams as set by the Federation, but it’s good practice to do so.
There isn’t a statewide regulatory massage therapy board in Vermont. This reduces the barrier to entry, as well as having the obvious drawbacks of not being as thorough in regards to regulating therapists.
Why Choose Vermont for Massage Therapy Schooling?
Vermont is a little different to most states. There is no regulatory body overseeing the licensing process, but there are still some excellent schools to train at.
The cost of living is higher than average in Vermont, and starting a business can be expensive. Don’t let this deter you however, there is a demand for skilled massage therapists.
My advice is to contact a school and talk through your options with them. The economy and employment outlook are good in the state so there are plenty of opportunities to start your new career as a massage therapist.
