Starting with me, the Dean and Owner, Shirlee Rankin: I am an RMT in active practice since 1989, and hold both Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Adult Education degrees. I am a former clinical examiner for the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (C.M.T.O.) and have been a massage therapy instructor since 1992.

I developed the 1-year I.C.A.T. massage therapy program and want to share my knowledge and expertise with my students. I bring both real-world experience and examination skills to ensure that the Massage Therapy Diploma Programme at I.C.A.T. more than satisfies the competencies required by College of Massage Therapists of Ontario. I personally supervise and guide students as they progress through the program.

All my amazing staff are RMTs, in active practice, bringing current real world experience to every classroom and clinical session. This breadth of talent offers a range of perspectives and client experiences that prepares you better than any other school.
