Certification

Integrated Touch Therapy, Inc. 150-Hour Animal Massage Certificates

ITT is now offering a 150-hour Certificate of Completion.  More training is needed to take into account the more-complicated requests for animal bodywork; to meet this demand, we offer these classes.  The classes have a home-study section, and require 25 - 50 case studies which will be reviewed by an instructor.  Each class taught by an ITT instructor can be used as CEUs, just as our original certificate. We will combine your classes into one certificate after completion of 150 hours.  These certificates are available at all times to graduates as soon as they finish all criteria needed.  If you are interested in these certificates, please call our office for more information.
