Graduate Assistant Program (GAP)


The purpose of the Graduate Assistant Program is two fold. It offers Lakewood graduates the opportunity to revisit the massage therapy curriculum without the pressure of study, assignments, and exams. It also is the first step toward teacher apprenticeship. The program is designed to assist the instructors, as well as, the students in class.


The duties and responsibilities vary from clerical tasks to mentoring students by; assisting with the hands-on portion of the class experience, “pairing-up” as needed, and acting as a liaison between the students and the staff.


As an end result, the student who completes the GAP will receive:


  • A Certificate of Completion
    Consideration (if desired) for the Teacher Apprentice Program
  • While completion of this program may eventually lead to employment at the school, there are no guarantees of this. If a graduate wishes to pursue this possibility, they will need to make a separate application to the Teacher Apprentice Program upon completion of the Graduate Assistant Program.


All interested applicants will need to submit a letter of application. Candidates will be interviewed and will require approval from the facility before moving forward.
