What it’s like studying massage online:

Learning Platform

You will be given access to a digital manual made up of short, informative videos. All lessons are engaging and presented by our experienced course coaches. It will guide you through both the practical and theoretical material in a logical and easy-to-follow sequence that can be completed anytime.

Learning Support

The online team will be there to support you throughout the full journey. You will be introduced to your course coach via interactive video technology, and this coach will be your tutor throughout the course. You will also be invited to our online community where you can interact with other online students.

Assessments

You will complete the majority of both theoretical and practical assessments online. The theoretical assessments will be completed through our learning platform, Cloud Assess, and practical demonstrations are to be completed in your online sessions with your course coach.

Workload

Once enrolled, we will give you a schedule with key milestones. We recommend you allocate 9 hours of study per week to stay on track. It is a self-paced course, so if you are dedicated and proactive, it is possible for you to move through the course content quicker.

Clinical Practice

Once you have completed the online course content, the final step is to complete your practical training hours. We have different options for students to complete the final part of their study, to best suit individual needs. If you want to meet the current guidelines to be recognised by the majority of health funds to be eligible for private provider numbers, we have an option that will suit. If being able to offer health fund rebates is not a priority, and you would prefer the flexibility of minimal on-site course requirements, then we have an option that will still meet all the national training requirements. We would recommend speaking with one of our Online Career Specialists to see which option may be right for you.
