C. Components and Requirements

The State Board requires a practice of 500 hours for the Massage Therapy Program. Georgia Central University's Massage Therapy program has increased the hours to 585 + 15 in theories and practice due to the fact that we are Nationally Accredited for the program and many other States have higher requirements than that of the State of Georgia. We try to accommodate all of our students in the event that they wish to transfer or retrieve another license in other States as well. Our additional hours consist of hands on practical massage both in and out of the school.
