First College has opened their new Registered Massage Therapy (RMT) program with classes starting in September, 2020. The RMT program has received preliminary accreditation through the Canadian Massage Therapy Council for Accreditation (CMTCA). There are only nine accredited registered massage therapy programs in BC and First College will be the only one in Kelowna.
The program is a full time, two-year diploma program with academic and hands-on learning. Once graduates pass their exams they have many employment opportunities. RMT is one of the fastest growing health care professions.
