SI Graduates High Pass Rate for Licensing Exam

Once again, graduates of the Swedish Institute Massage Therapy Program have an outstanding performance on the New York State Licensing examination.

On the test, administered in August 2011, first-time test takers had a pass rate of 87 percent, compared to 80 percent for all candidates. The combined pass rate for first time and repeat candidates was 82 percent for Swedish Institute alumni, compared to 67 percent for all candidates. We congratulate all of our successful alumni!

Massage therapy students are expected to be familiar with all of the content regarding massage therapy on the Office of the Professions website. Although the guidelines can be obtained in a hard copy, the State encourages students to visit the website because any updates are immediately made to the website.

For an overview of all of the licensed professions in New York State go to the Office of the Professions.
