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: Pursuant to California Business and Professions Code Section 4602(j), this is to provide 90 days advance notice to the public that the CAMTC Board of Directors may vote on an increase to certification fees at its May 31, 2018 meeting and/or at its September 2018 meeting.
Please check the meeting notices/agendas for the May and September 2018 meetings (posted on this site at least 10 days prior to each meeting) to see if this issue has been placed on the agenda. Please note that even if the item appears on either or both agendas, the item may or may not be discussed or voted on at the meeting.
On March 9, 2017 CAMTC’s Board voted to institute new policies and procedures to help students seeking certification.
1. 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.
2. 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.
If you would like anyone to be able to receive information regarding your application or status, please fill out the form at this link.
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 in a timely manner to ensure that it is 'received' by CAMTC at least 60 days before the expiration date listed on your certificate.
