Western Tech Becomes First COMTA School in Texas

Western Technical College’s Massage Therapy Program recently implemented a new curriculum endorsed by the Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation (COMTA), making it the first and only COMTA recognized school in the State of Texas.

“It is a great honor to have this recognition,” says Pablo Vargas, Program Director for Massage Therapy.  “It shows Western Tech is one step ahead of other institutions and meets a higher standard in the quality of education we provide to our students.”

Commissioned by the U.S. Department of Education, COMTA is the only accrediting body that dictates massage therapy curriculum by a review process that sets rigorous standards in which less than 1% of schools’ meet nationwide.

Since its development in 2006, Western Tech’s Massage Therapy program has continuously ensured a quality level of education that prepares students for a successful career.

Vargas and Western Tech will continue to focus on becoming a fully COMTA accredited program in the near future.
