Key Performance Indicators and CMTO Pass Rates
The Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development (MAESD) collects information about post-secondary institutions and compiles what they call Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Our regulatory body, the College of Massage Therapy of Ontario (CMTO), also posts the pass rates of their annual entry-to-practice exams. If you compare our KPIs and CMTO pass rates to other massage therapy schools, you’ll find we are consistently one of the best.
