Accreditation is a voluntary process that identifies and acknowledges educational programs and/or institutions for achieving and maintaining a level of quality, performance and integrity that meets meaningful standards. A school that decides to become accredited does a comprehensive, in-depth study of the quality of its education, administrative practices, curriculum, student affairs, faculty competence and relationships with employers. Only after an on-site visit and a commission review to verify that the school meets the standards may the program and/or institution be accredited.

The Cortiva Institute Chicago Loop, Crystal Lake, and Joliet Campuses are accredited by the Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation (COMTA).
