Short Term Alternative Training Measures (COVID-19)

Dear Students:


Since learning of the outbreak of COVID-19, the health and well-being of all Ontarians has been our top priority. As this issue has evolved, the Superintendent of MTCU-Private Career College has decided to allow us to accommodate students by offering classroom program via online, distance, or other alternative methods of instruction on a temporary basis. (Please refer to the E-mail dated March 17, 2020 and the letter from the Director of your program).

We understand that many people are becoming increasingly concerned about their health and well-being during this difficult time. We have decided to temporary move our training to online for the period from March 23, 2020 to April 6, 2020 or to the date with the notification by local public health officer that there is no continuing risk to students of contracting COVID-19 by attending their classes.

We encourage you to check following websites to stay informed by regularly reviewing credible sources of information:


Temporary Alternative Training Measures

We will still need to:

  1. Monitoring your full-time participation

  2. Monitoring academic progression (i.e. weekly reports)

  3. You must adhereto the Active Participation Policy and all school policies as it is in-class training

  4. You need to check your email regularly for school updates.


Thank you for your attention and we look forward to working with you in the best interests of your academic progress during this difficult time.

With March break coming up, if you have travel plans, we strongly encourage you to review the Government of Canada Travel Advice and Advisories Website:

Before you leave, check your travel destinations for the travel health notices for COVID-19 as each country and area may have different levels of risk.

The Government of Canada is also advising Canadians to AVOID ALL TRAVEL on CRUISE SHIPS due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, until further notice.

Please note:

Should you return from travel from a region that has reported COVID-19 cases and/or evidence of community transmission or any of your family members at home is undergoing testing for COVID-19.

  • You should stay at home; to self-quarantine for a period of up to 14 days prior to returning to the School.
  • You or your family should seek medical care early should they be displaying acute respiratory symptoms (i.e. cough, difficulty breathing, fever).

Please do not come to the School if you are sick – particularly if you have a cold or flu-like symptoms (regardless of whether you or a family member has recently travelled). If you have a fever, cough or difficulty breathing, we encourage you to contact Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-799-0000 or your Local Public Health Units to seek medical care early and take all reasonable precautions.

Best Practice Guidelines

Non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs)
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises that non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) will be the most important tools.

  1. Wash your hands frequently: See the attached Hand Washing best practices document from the World Health Organization
    or watch the Public Health Ontario - 7steps of Hand HygieneVideo

  3. Maintain social distancing: Maintain at least one metre (three feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing whenever possible.

  5. Practice respiratory hygiene: Cover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Dispose of used tissue immediately.

  7. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth at all times.

  9. Regularly clean public surfaces (door handles, elevator buttons, public desk surfaces)

BODY MECHANICS -  Extending your Career 

The secret to their long life in the profession is proper BODY  MECHANICS!!!! 

This course is approved by the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario for 3.75 Category A Continuing Education credits.

You love your career as a Massage Therapist!  You have a good practice and it's growing all the time.  You love helping people to improve health, function and relaxation. The only concern is whether your own body is going to hold out.  You may already be experiencing muscle pain or signs of repetitive strain syndrome.

We know that many therapists drop out of the profession before their fifth year of practice, and we assume that some of these drop-outs are because of work-related injury or pain.  However, if we look at the CMTO statistics, we also see that there are many therapists who have been working for ten, fifteen or even more than twenty-five years!

Instructor: Lee Kalpin RMT, has been in active practice since 1984,  a career of 31 years – so far! 

In this one-day workshop
 she will teach you to stand and move in ways that will make doing massage much easier on your body, and will prevent injury to your hands, arms, shoulders, and back.

This workshop is 90% hands-on, and small class size will ensure that you receive lots of personal help and feed-back.  Register early to reserve your space!
