CAMTC certification allows massage professionals to practice massage therapy throughout the state of California without the need to obtain multiple permits or pay additional fees.
Notice to Applicants!!
On March 9, 2017 CAMTC’s Board voted to institute three new policies and procedures to help students seeking certification.
1. If you attended one of the following unapproved schools, the policy has CHANGED and you may now apply for CAMTC certification using education from one of these schools, as long as your application has already been received by CAMTC or is received by CAMTC on or before June 8, 2017, though you will be required to provide additional proof of adequate education and pass an education hearing.

2. If you attended a school that was in good standing at the time it closed and CLOSED before July 1, 2016, you may apply using your education from the closed school for CAMTC certification purposes as long as your application is received by CAMTC on or before December 31, 2018. If your application is received after this date you may still apply for certification using this education, but you must provide either continuous and current proof of a city or county permit to provide massage for compensation, or pass an education hearing. Please see the Policies and Procedures for Approval of Schools for more details on the applicability of this policy.
3. If you attended a school that has requested CAMTC school approval and is ultimately denied, you may still apply for CAMTC certification using education from the denied school as long as your application for certification is received within 90 days of the effective date of denial.
Notice regarding recertification:
Reminder notifications may be sent to you as a courtesy only, and failure to receive a reminder notification does not waive late fees and your responsibility to submit a fully completed application for recertification and ensure that it is received at least 60-days before expiration.
