Massage Apprenticeship Program
The massage apprenticeship program is a the most personalized training program GMI offers. In this unique alternative to full time courses, students receive individualized training in pairs or small groups, with the scope of training adjusted to meet their needs. Beginning students are welcome, however this approach is also ideal for deepening the knowledge of intermediate and professional students.
Students benefit from learning under such close supervision, both while receiving and giving massage. Students also benefit by receiving massage from the instructor, and at times, working on the instructor.
Students can come with a partner or be teamed with other interested students. Classes are by appointment, and can be scheduled to suit the students' schedules. The apprenticeship training program usually includes attendance at an introductory training week.
Some students choose to combine the apprenticeship training with part of a longer training program, such as the Portugal Massage Program.
Apprenticeship training can be applied towards National Certification Requirements. At present this option is only available at our Vermont location. Upon finishing the course the students have the option of enrolling in a supervised internship, or our Advanced Practitioner program.
