Diploma of Remedial Massage

National ID: HLT52015 | State ID: AWI6

 

Get national accreditation as a health care provider.

This course will provide you with the latest remedial massage techniques. Whilst studying you will practice in a variety of clinical and sporting environments with clients ranging from people with disabilities to elite athletes - we are affiliated with Western Australian professional sporting teams such as the Perth Wildcats, Perth Lynx, Perth Glory, Fremantle Dockers and the WA Female AFL Academy.

You will have access to facilities and resources including an on-campus library, student support services and the University of Western Australia’s wet labs.

During the first two weeks of study (Monday to Friday 9am-4pm) you will gain the practical foundations of massage preparing you for practice in our Live-Works Clinic. A compulsory and highly valuable part of the course is a weekly supervised shift in the clinic that is open Wednesday and Thursday 2pm – 7:30pm, Friday 1pm – 6:30pm and Saturday 9am - 2pm.

From week three onwards, you are on campus three to four days a week and classes are a mixture of practical and theoretical work. During the course you will also need to obtain your Senior First Aid certificate with another recognised training provider.

On completion of this course you are able to apply for and receive a private health care provider number from the nationally accredited massage associations.

Course fees are made up of two components, tuition fees and resource fees.

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.

Fees may vary depending on the units you are enrolled in so an approximate amount has been shown. You will be given the exact amount of your fees at enrolment. Part time student fees will vary depending on the number of units you are enrolled in.

Please note, you may also need to buy textbooks or equipment for your course.

International Students

If this course is available for International students you will need to pay your course fees to TIWA when you accept your offer.
