The BIG Test
In Washington, to do small animal massage you must be certified by a governing board and licensed through the Department of Health. The test is three hours long and I got to take it at my local library. You'd think this would be a good, quiet place to take a test. Turns out, not so much. The computer area is full of people online, listening to VERY loud music, and for the case of my test day - a hummer. This gal sat and surfed and hummed for two hours! Add to that the people walking around and it was just a tad distracting. But I finished and I passed! Which was surprising a bit since many of the questions were taken from HUMAN massage schools and not just animal - but luckily I have a background in some anatomy and physiology.
