Accreditation or Approval
PTVT requires proof that the school is accredited by an accrediting commission of career schools and colleges, accrediting council for continuing education and training, or an accrediting bureau of health education schools; provided that in lieu of such accreditation, the school may provide a letter from relevant state, federal, or other licensing authority demonstrating that the private trade, vocational, or technical school's curriculum is sufficient to prepare a graduate to qualify for professional licensure.
Below are a few links to organizations that can assist with accreditation or approval.
All massage schools seeking licensing from the DOE must first obtain a Massage School Curriculum Letter approving the minimum education and training hours from the Hawaii Board of Massage Therapy. Please email: email@example.com or phone: (808) 586-2696.
