Once you have graduated from a recognized Massage Therapy program, you will be required to take Certification Examinations administered by Prometric on behalf of CMTO. Your education must be no more than three years old on the date you are scheduled to take an examination. If your education is more than three years old, you must successfully complete a CMTO Refresher Course no more than 15 months before the date you are scheduled to take an examination.

Similarly, if your education is more than three years old at the time you apply for registration, you must successfully complete a CMTO refresher course no more than 15 months before the date of your application.

For more information, please review CMTO’s Education Requirement for Exam Eligibility and Initial Registration policy. .

Impact of COVID-19

In recognition of the impact the COVID-19 pandemic had on the education validity timeframe, CMTO will grant a one-time extension equivalent to the time lost due to the certification examinations not being administered in 2020. Please review Education Validity Extension for Certification Examinations and at Initial Registration due to the Impact of COVID-19 for more information.
