Hear from our Massage Therapy Students!

I recently graduated from the CHCP Massage Therapy Certificate Program and if you are looking for a change in your life, I would urge you to strongly consider CHCP. I can not put into words or context the commitment that the entire staff has to each and every student at the Fort Worth Campus. The instructors are knowledgeable and truly teach from their hearts. The campus leadership from the President and down were involved in my educational process at the personal level which is something I have never experienced while attending the other universities while working on my Bachelor's Degree. They give every student an opportunity to excel and grow a person. As a student ambassador, I was able to witness the school's commitment to our community by participating in canned food drives and several other fundraising efforts that the school does to give back to our community. Career Services is another added bonus! If you work with career services counselors and take ownership of your are going to find a job in your new career field...period. These women are highly networked and do not fail! In closing, I could continue rambling praises about CHCP but instead will leave it at this....if your heart is pushing you towards a career change within the medical field and you are feeling the urge to pursue it...the first lesson you will need to learn is how to select your new educational all that I have said about CHCP and put your trust in these people.....see there...I just gave you your first lesson free.
