Taking the initiative to steer your life in a different direction can be daunting. We understand this because, at one time, everyone at ABMI was where you are now.
Our commitment to you is to be by your side every step of the way from helping you learn about AMBI or guidance with financing, to assisting you with your job searches. Once you are an AMBI student, you’ll always feel welcome. In fact, most students feel they’ve become part of a supportive family when they join the school.
The Admissions Process
Meet with an AMBI Admissions representative
Complete all admissions documents and an essay
Participate in an interview with a Senior Instructor or Lead Administrator
A financial assistance appointment may also be conducted at the campus depending on how the student wishes to pay the tuition

All applicants for the Massage Therapy Diploma program must have a high school diploma, GED or equivalent.
