CPR and First Aid
Most states (incl AK, DE, HI, IA, ME, MD, MI, MS, ND, NJ, NH, NM, NY, OR, PA, PR, RI, TX, WA, WI) require current CPR certification to apply for a massage license. Some states require current First Aid certification. You are automatically enrolled for the CPR class and the First Aid class, which costs $135 in addition to tuition. Please indicate whether you would like us to remove you from the CPR/First Aid course. You can change your mind any time prior to the start of the course.

I agree to the refund agreement
By checking this box, I am acknowledging and agree with the following refund policy: The following policies apply to all programs offered by PCAB: 1. The $50 application fee is always nonrefundable. 2. If for any reason an applicant is not accepted, all monies paid will be refunded, except the application fee. 3. The $100 registration fee is refunded only if enrollment is cancelled before the commencement of classes and within five days of the date of enrollment, or if one is not accepted into the program for any reason. 4. A student who cancels before instruction has begun is refunded as follows: • More than 30 days before: Full refund of all tuition paid. • Less than 30 days before: $500 of the tuition paid is forfeited and all other tuition paid is refunded. 5. A student who cancels after instruction has begun is responsible to pay a percentage of payment plan totals, plus a $500 processing fee, according to the following schedule: • Prior to Week 3 Day 1: 25% • Week 3 Day 1 to Week 6 Day 1: 50% • Week 6, Day 1 and thereafter: 100%. Any unpaid tuition will become due at this time. 6. Official notice of withdrawal or cancellation shall be given to PCAB in writing, or the date of withdrawal is considered to be fourteen days after the last date of attendance, and any payments owed from that date would become due immediately. 7. Any refund owed to the student will be made within thirty (30) days after receiving notice of cancellation or dismissal. 8. No refunds are given for books or supplies that we deem un-resellable for any reason. 9. While we have never cancelled a licensing program, should PCAB deem it necessary to cancel the program due to lack of enrollment or other reason, a full refund of all money paid will be given, including the application fee, and PCAB will have no further obligation. Every attempt will be made to inform the student in a timely manner. In case of illness or disabling accident, death in the immediate family, or other circumstances beyond the control of the student that cause the student to withdraw from school or in case of PCAB terminating the student’s enrollment for any reason, the school at its sole discretion may arrange a prorated tuition settlement that is reasonable and fair to both parties. I have read and I understand the PCAB Refund Policies above.
I agree. (Be sure you've read over the
if you haven't already.)
Waiver and Release of Liability
I am aware that while attending school at The Pacific Center for Awareness & Bodywork (PCAB), I will be practicing and receiving massage, as well as participating in physical exercises and movement of various forms. I hereby give permission to staff and students to interact with me to facilitate my growth and education. I am aware that this includes touch, verbal processes, conversation of various kinds, as well as bodywork and movement techniques. I hereby release from liability, and hold harmless, all staff & students who may interact with me in these ways. I choose to attend school and be on the premises, including driveways, parking areas, walking trails, yards, and where classes will be held. I agree to be responsible for my own wellbeing and safety. I hereby hold harmless and release from liability Mark Olson, The Church of the Pacific, Studio Barre and Soul, Wellness by Water, any and all staff, other students at the school, Neurotreks LLC, and the Pacific Center for Awareness & Bodywork for any injury, illness, damage to my self or my personal property, or any loss I may incur while on the premises while attending classes at any of PCAB’s facilities.
Waiver and Release from Psychological Liability
I understand the following: 1. The Pacific Center for Awareness and Bodywork (PCAB) is a massage therapy school that offers a pre-licensing program that exists for the purpose of training future massage therapists. 2. Both massage therapy and mindfulness practices have psychological impacts. PCAB’s training program is designed to properly educate students about these impacts and how to best address them. 3. Because massage and mindfulness have psychological impacts, PCAB teaches ways to provide self-care, and PCAB also encourages students to find support from psychological professionals if necessary. Therefore, I will not hold PCAB or any of its staff or instructors liable for any psychological harm or distress resulting from participating in the program. 4. No part of PCAB’s massage therapy program (including the communication and mindfulness tools and exercises) constitutes or implies psychotherapy or counseling services, nor psychotherapy or counseling training. Talking with an instructor, including instructors who are also licensed psychotherapists and counselors, inside or outside of class, does not constitute psychotherapy or counseling. 5. PCAB does not provide psychological services. Therefore, I will not hold PCAB or any of its staff or instructors liable for not providing psychological services, and I will not make claims that psychological services were provided. 6. It is the student’s responsibility to assess whether s/he needs psychological support and to seek out that psychological support outside of school. Therefore, if I want or need to seek out psychological support, I will do so on my own.
I understand all of the following: • PCAB’s Somatic Bodywork Program has a dual focus as a personal growth and professional development program. Both aspects of the program focus on the healing of the body, mind, and heart through a biopsychosocial approach. The program offers training in several bodywork modalities and also incorporates many opportunities for deep personal exploration of feelings, beliefs, patterns, communication strategies, and the nature of the Self. • The program proceeds from basic skills to advanced skills at an accelerated pace. Both the content and the pace of the course can be physically and emotionally challenging at times for some. • Each participant will be a unique and integral part of a unique whole. Reliable attendance and timeliness are important because they both affect the total number of hours that one will graduate with, and one must graduate with 752 hours in order to ensure that one has all necessary hours to qualify for licensing in every state. More importantly, reliable attendance and timeliness also affects the quality of the classroom experience for everyone. • We will be practicing various biopsychosocial therapies/modalities with each other. Though the class and the staff provide a supportive environment for personal growth, the consciousness sessions in class are not a replacement for sessions with a professional counselor or psychotherapist. It is recommended that every student consider finding extra psychological support outside the program during the program to get the most out of the program possible. • The latter half of the bodywork portion of the course provides an extensive introduction to Structural Integration (SI). It does not constitute a comprehensive training in this modality. One should seek further education after graduation in order to ethically market oneself as an SI practitioner. • PCAB is a school, first and foremost, and while the process of going through the PCAB program often results in a strong feeling of community amongst students, “community” is not the goal and we do not function like a community. As a participant, I commit to all of the following: • Giving my utmost to both the personal and professional aspects of the program. • Showing up to ALL classes daily and on time (unless prevented from doing so by illness or emergency, or previously excused by the Director). • Participating in both the physical and consciousness-oriented therapies. • Studying/practicing outside of class and completing all assignments. • Behaving in a way that does not jeopardize the physical or psychological safety (conscious or non-conscious) of fellow classmates. • Being as authentic and compassionate with myself and others as I’m able. • Being a full participant in all of the above, and supporting other classmates in doing the same. I understand that as part of my commitment to all of the above, I welcome staff to engage me in a compassionate discussion if I am failing to uphold any part of this agreement, and I understand that continued failure in this regard may be grounds for dismissal from the program.
Photo, Video, and Audio Release
This is to confirm that I hereby give permission to Pacific Center for Awareness & Bodywork, and its Director, to use images and/or recordings of me that were taken during my participation in any of the courses or trainings presented by them. This includes the following: photos, video, audio, and any recordings taken by any other means. If I don’t want a specific photo, video, or audio used, I will specify this request on the day of the recording. I understand that any such material may be used for advertising and promotion purposes and/or educational materials only.
I do not give PCAB permission for the use of images or other recordings of me.
