Class Schedule for Seattle, WA

Seattle classes are held in a variety of rented classroom spaces primarily in the Fremont and North Seattle areas. Each class description includes a link for the classroom location details assigned to that class. Classrooms are assigned at least 3 weeks prior to class (often months in advance), but sometimes, based on changing registrations, it might take longer to post a classroom location.

Notice: In-Person CE Classes restarted June 25 for the Therapeutic Training Center, Inc. On June 1, Governor Inslee authorized higher education and adult vocational in-person classes to occur as soon as the county the classes were in reached Phase 2 and they could meet the infection prevention and control requirements set forward in the set of guidelines provided to schools. King County was approved for Phase 2 on June 19. Like every other industry, education businesses were provided with a set of minimum guidelines, which you can see at: Phase 2 Higher Education & Workforce Training COVID-19 Requirements.

The classes through August 31 have been updated with PPE and other COVID-19 infection prevention and control procedures.  At the end of July, I will update the classes for September.  If you would like the jist of what it will look like, click: HERE. The instructors and I have created a 9 page infection prevention and control document to manage all aspect of classes to keep everyone as safe as possible. But this is only part of the equation.

We realize that there is a big issue with asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic COVID-19 carriers as well as issues that we need to be aware of when someone has had COVID-19 whether they knew they had it or not. We are incorporating information into our classes to help LMTs to ask better screening and intake questions, modify technique as necessary, as well as to check for health to determine if a patient/client is healthy enough to receive massage and a massage therapist is healthy enough to give a massage.

On our home page, I have listed information on the licensing renewal extension as well as other useful links for LMTs in general and for LMT small business owners and LMT employees. Updated 7/21/20 at 11:51pm.
