Mark and Amanda inspire and motivate. The RMT business class is everything you should've been taught in school. This class will definitely help RMT's venture out on their own. I have been in practice for 16 years and highly recommend the ConEd RMT business course. 

Jemal Anderson, RMT

Hamilton, Ont.

This is definitely the business information not taught in school. I would recommend this course to any RMT that wants to improve their business, make more money, work less, and pay less tax.  Even after 11 years in practice and operating my own multi-disciplinary clinic for 2 years, I learned lots of valuable information from this course. 

Carrie Ann Courage, RMT

I’d just like to say that The RMT Business Seminar was very informative. It was useful to RMTs from all different backgrounds. Whether you are just starting out, run your own multi-therapist business, or are somewhere in between, you can benefit from this course. I enjoyed getting great ideas on how to create a strategic plan for my business and setting goals in order to increase my revenue. There were also some great tips on how to market your business and yourself as a therapist and how to build your business without burning-out physically. The instructors were all great speakers with a wealth of knowledge in their particular field. I enjoyed this seminar very much and would recommend it to all RMT’s looking to increase both their knowledge and their potential income.

Anonymous, RMT

I feel like it gave me a plan and broke down the steps for me to become more successful. STRATEGIC PLANNING is the key! And using a SWOT Analysis brings to light the strengths and weaknesses you need to focus on. I also loved the positive thinking component and appreciated all the information on accounting! It was more than helpful!!
