As far as I know, a CMT has 600+ hours of massage school and an additional 60 credits of college classes, plus national certification; an LMP has 600+ hours of massage school plus national certification without reaching 60 college credits, and an LMT is the same description of an LMP.
Is this correct?

However, 18VAC90-50-10 in the regulations governing the certification of Massage Therapists in the Commonwealth of Virginia requires that only someone who has been certified by the Board of Nursing as a Massage Therapist may use any designation tending to imply that he/she is a “massage therapist” or “certified massage therapist”.

What is the average amount of hours required to be registered/certified/licensed in the US?
