EMA is a recognized school by the Department of Career and Technical education in North Dakota.

A timeline for your reference is available upon request.
As a new school, it takes time to develop a profile that can be examined by an agency. All of our policies, procedures, curriculum, and financial processes are developed and designed to meet and exceed ACCSC criteria. Once we have been operating for the required length of time set forth by ACCSE , we will be accepted to their program to be reviewed.
"Tiffany is easy to learn from instructor. She has clever ways to remember trigger points & muscle attachments which has helped me throughout my career.
