Training in massage therapy (reference to the Québec model of massage therapyTMincludes three competency profiles and allows the certified massage therapistTM* to perform a massage that is safe, effective and adapted to various health conditions.
These three profiles take the form of training programs (from 400 to 1,800 hours) offered across the network of FQM-accredited schools and through the Institut de formation de la FQM. Their accreditation ensures that teaching and training are compliant with the highest quality standards (ISO 9001: 2015) comparable with those in force in other provinces where massage therapy is regulated.
The requirements of the FQM-recognized training profiles are as follows:
- Profile 1: 400 hours
- Profile 2: 1,000 hours
- Profile 3: 1,500 to 1,800 hours
For complete details on each of these profiles, please view the Québec model of massage therapy.
