Get Paid to Learn

We pay your tuition!

We’ve all heard stories about staggering student debt. At the Burke Williams Academy of Massage Therapy, however, our proposition is completely different. When you’re enrolled with us, you’re not just a student, you’re a Burke Williams employee—and a member of the Burke Williams family!

When you apply to the Academy you will actually be applying for a job as a massage therapist with our company. If accepted, we’ll waive your tuition, and we’ll pay you minimum wage for your classroom hours while you’re in school. When you complete the program and become a Certified Massage Therapist by the CAMTC (California Massage Therapy Council), you won’t need to interview for another job—you’ll already have one. You’ll have the opportunity to become a valued member of the Burke Williams family of massage therapists and our team will be looking forward to having you join them in one of our day spas or at Simply Massage. Once you complete two years of employment with us as a massage therapist, we’ll consider your tuition paid in full.

It’s the debt-free way to learn your craft, hone your skills and launch your career. That’s peace of mind, guaranteed. Contact us today to schedule an interview.
