Admission Requirements
Standard Admission Students must meet ONE of the following criteria: 1. Alberta High School diploma or non-Alberta equivalent, verified by transcript OR 2. Successful completion of the General Equivalency Diploma (GED). Mature Admission Students must meet the following criteria: 1. 18 years of age or older 2. Out of high school for at least 2 years 3. Successful completion of a post-secondary program, at the certificate level (at minimum)* 4. Specific high school courses required for program entry include: None required** Additionally, ALL students must meet the following criteria: 1. Clear police information background check 2. Successful completion of an interview with school administrators - Interest in massage and suitability for the program will be assessed during the interview - Students will be notified that CPR and First Aid training are requirements prior to commencing the practicum component of the program*** *The reason Archways insists upon completion of a program rather than an equivalency exam is because none of the equivalency exams listed on the PCCB Admissions Requirements form are good indicators of the work ethic necessary to succeed in the 2200 hour program and as a massage therapist. Archways' 2200 hour program is condensed, therefore, a student without evidence of high school/GED completion must have stronger evidence than one exam that they are capable of handling the load. Completion of a previous certificate program at a post-secondary level is a higher level of achievement than high school equivalency, and a stronger predictor of student work ethic, ability to learn, and success in Archways program. **Students may be from other provinces or be significantly older, and encounter difficulty accessing high school transcripts. Mature students must provide evidence that they passed a post-secondary certificate program at minimum, which is an equivalent indicator of ability to learn. Personal interest and suitability for the career is a gauged during the interview. To ask for evidence of specific high school courses would be redundant, and may screen out students who would make fantastic massage therapists. ***CPR and First Aid training is not an admission require for entry to the program, however, it is a requirement prior to commencing the practicum component.
