Bay College West Campus is pleased to announce the launch of their Massage Therapy Training Program starting August 15, 2022 in Iron Mountain, MI.  The West campus is working closely with Jenny DeDecker of Full Moon Rising Wellness Studio in Norway, MI and has been approved as an Assigned School through the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB). The 625-hour, non-credit massage program will run through June 23, 2023 and prepares students for the nationally recognized Massage and Bodywork Licensure Examination (MBLEX).

Bay College requires all applicants to be at least eighteen years of age, pass a background check, hold a high school diploma or equivalent and be physically capable of giving and receiving massages. Interested individuals are encouraged to apply early due to a maximum capacity of 12 students. A $50 application fee will reserve your seat, but registration and the full payment of $8,999 is due by July 13, 2022. Financial aid is not applicable for this program; however, funding opportunities may be available through Michigan Works, local banks and credit unions.

Massage Therapy is in high demand with great income potential, flexible hours, a variety of potential work settings, opportunities for growth, and work that allows you to improve physical and mental well-being of others. Bay College’s main campus will also be offering a massage therapy training program with more information and dates to be announced in the upcoming weeks.
