Diploma of Remedial Massage

National ID: HLT52015 | State ID: AWI6

 

This qualification will teach you how to manipulate the soft tissue, ligaments, muscle, fascia and tendons for the treatment of muscular dysfunction.

Therapeutic massage is increasingly becoming a part of our fast paced lives and the need for skilled practitioners is growing with it.

During this qualification you will be required to conduct and complete a large number of massages in our on-campus clinics, which are open to the public (note the Northbridge clinic is open on Saturdays). This on-the-job experience will give you relevant skills and prepare you for a career in remedial massage upon completion of your diploma.

You will need to acquire a First Aid qualification from an external provider such as Red Cross or St John Ambulance for completion of this course.

There may be some evening classes scheduled for full time students and part time will be run over 2 nights per week with some Saturday clinics. You will need to have access to your own massage table at home to consolidate your learning.

Tuition fees are determined by multiplying the course fee rate by the nominal hours, which is the number of hours in which an average student could be expected to complete each unit. They are not the hours of training or instruction.

Resource fees are charges for material that are essential to a course or unit, and are purchased by NMT to be used by students during the course.
