About Us


Our College was established in 1997 by Madam Professor Pearl Gopaul at her residence, #19 Cedar Drive in Marabella. After two years the College outgrew its space and now occupies 11,500sq.ft of land, at # 68 Market Street.

Since its formation the College has undergone tremendous changes. The College has expanded its syllabus and teaching staff and has shifted the focus of the Massage program from Swedish to Medical Massage. The Cosmetology program has been shifted from a theory based program to a Competency Based system with defined performance criteria. The College provides the necessary learning tools, equipment for students. Our original program in Massage Therapy was three hundred hours; it has now been extended to one thousand and two hours in keeping with International Standards. Cosmetology has now been extended to a Levels 1 and Level 2 with CVQ awards rather than just a certificate.



The Vision of the College is to continue to provide students with the appropriate Skills, Knowledge and Attitudes to meet the current job market.  



The Trinidad & Tobago College of Therapeutic Massage & Beauty Culture Ltd. is committed to provide the highest standards of training in Medical Massage Therapy and Cosmetology, whereby students are exposed to a wide range of modern techniques and technologies.  We aspire to graduate highly competent and skilled Massage Therapists and Cosmetologists in the art and science of the respective profession, to meet the growing needs of an improved holistic healthcare delivery system.
