Course Description

PREREQUISITE: Completion of SAMP Foundation Distance Learning Course. 

Your online studies come to life in this exciting 5-day session which integrates hands-on training with the theory studied in the Small Animal Massage Therapist (SAMT) Foundation course. 

This course focuses on maintenance massage and is the gateway to further studies in performance and rehabilitation massage.

During class, you will work with a variety of animals under the supervision of your instructor. Guest speakers and field trips are often part of the class experience.

Cost of this course is $500, which includes materials and a $50 registration fee. Please choose the $50 + Financing option when enrolling in the practical. Though we do not finance the practical, we do only charge the $50 registration fee at the time of enrollment. The remaining $450 balance will be due on the first day of your class. Payment can be made by cash, check or credit card at that time.
