At BIMT we believe that quality supervised instruction with each and every student is vital, which is why we take pride in offering small class sizes to ensure personal attention. In all classes, the ratio of instructors to students will be 1:8 (one instructor for up to 8 students). Exceptions are possible under the right circumstances- but will never exceed 1:10.
Registration for classes must be completed five days prior to the beginning of each term. To be considered for enrollment at BIMT, the applicant must be at least 17 years of age (provided that they will be 18 years old at the time of graduation) and possess a high school transcript showing graduation from high school with a 2.0 or better GPA, GED certificate or a college transcript reflecting achievement beyond the high school level.
To benefit from massage therapy training, the student should be in good health and have reasonable stamina, as the work of a massage therapist can be physically demanding.
It is expected that the student will have the motivation to complete the program in the time allotted and have the aptitude to study the written, technical and practical material.
The student should have the financial resources necessary to complete the program.
All applicants must be interviewed at BIMT prior to admission into the program by the Director or Assistant Director. Interviews must be scheduled Monday through Friday 10:00 am-6:00 pm.
Student admissions are chosen with careful consideration, and not every applicant is guaranteed acceptance.
Applications must include:
Applications may be submitted by mail, or by appointment.
Incomplete applications will be returned to the applicant.
PLEASE NOTE: Prior criminal convictions may affect a student’s ability to become a licensed massage therapist in the state of Alabama. That decision will be made by the Alabama Board of Massage Therapy after the student’s graduation from BIMT.
