I love my career as a massage therapist! My education was excellent and I was fully prepared to work in a clinic with other experienced massage therapists when I graduated. I also love that I have flexibility with what hours I work.
The instructors at Vicars were absolutely amazing!! Knowledgeable, encouraging and ALWAYS supportive.
Jennifer S., Vicars graduate
When I applied for jobs in Calgary after graduation, I got several phone calls from employers just because they liked that I had gone to Vicars.
Vicars graduates have a good reputation among clients, and with other therapists. I’ve worked at clinics that have had Vicars graduates, and they are busy, knowledgeable, and very pleasant to work with.
I am proud to be a Vicars graduate. Thank you!
Ryan K., Vicars graduate
Even after a busy day, I leave work so happy because I know that I’m helping so many people. I learned so much about myself while I was at Vicars. Between when I started school and when I finished, I gained so much more confidence: not only in my work, but in myself.
