    Course description and aims

    Aimed at people seeking a career in massage, this course offers a nationally recognised qualification in the field of remedial massage. Enter the growing healthcare sector and operate your own studio, or work for a larger provider such as a clinic, gym, health spa, sports or rehabilitation service.

    Learn how to treat soft tissue dysfunction, musculoskeletal imbalance or restrictions in range of motion (ROM) and put the practical skills you learn in this hands-on course to good use. Study anatomy and physiology, human nutrition, client communication, law and ethics and infection control.

    For students seeking to complete a First Aid unit of competency as part of their program, you must be able to perform basic life support skills, for example control bleeding and perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). If you have a disability that would prevent you from performing required basic life support skills you are advised that you will not be able to achieve the unit of competency.
