IBMC College Announces New Shorter Massage Therapy Training Program

May 24, 2018

IBMC College is excited to announce it will be shortening its Therapeutic Massage Diploma program from 15 months to just 10 months starting July 2018.

The vocational college will begin offering the Therapeutic Massage Diploma program at all three of its N. Colorado campuses located in Fort Collins, Greeley and Longmont.

With total required credit hours decreasing from 61 to 46, the curriculum will change along with the program duration; Courses in which topics and training had crossover content have been combined, providing for a more holistic experience during lectures and hands-on technique training.

The reduction in program length stems from current market demand, as well as the College’s desire to remain competitive in the education marketplace.


Earlier this year, IBMC College reduced the program length of its Clinical Medical Assisting, Dental Assisting and Cosmetology diploma programs. The shorter programs have proven helpful for those students who cannot afford to spend a long time in school.

“It gives more students a realistic way to go to college. Quicker, personal investment-friendly options appeal to students who previously could not make this investment in themselves,” Steve Steele, CEO of IBMC College said.

IBMC College has been providing career training opportunities in northern Colorado for more than 30 years. From business, to law, medical and beauty careers, the College has helped thousands of students graduate with career prospects and preparedness for their chosen field.
