Thinking about a career in esthetics or massage therapy? Then you need a good accredited school!

There are lots of options when it comes to getting the education and training you need to succeed.  Montana alone has quite a few massage schools that aren’t accredited. Why is that important? No federal financial aid, for one.

Health Works Institute is an accredited school. It’s accredited by the Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation (COMTA) for both our massage and esthetics programs – which is as good as it gets! That means HWI can be the door to your successful future.

Here are three top benefits to choosing an accredited school:

1. You can get financial aid. This is a biggie! If a school isn’t accredited by COMTA or another organization approved by the U.S. Department of Education, that school cannot administer federal student financial aid programs. But HWI can. We’ll help you fill out your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) application, and assist you in finding scholarships, student loans, Pell grants and other funds to get you on the road to enrolling at HWI.

2. High graduation rates. Our No. 1 goal is for you to complete our program and launch into a successful career. Studies show that COMTA-accredited schools graduate around 88% of their students. Schools accredited by other agencies have graduation rates of just 60% to 84%.

3. High standards. We keep our standards high for the best education, support, and resources possible. And who doesn’t want the best? Health Works Institute offers highly qualified teachers, lots of hands-on clinical experience, and the best course content and materials available. All this naturally leads to excellent grades as well as high student satisfaction and graduation rates.
