HLT42015 Certificate IV in Massage Therapy

The Certificate IV in Massage Therapy reflects the role of massage therapists who provide general health maintenance treatments.  It does not reflect the role of a remedial massage therapist. Practitioners may be self employed or work within a larger health service.

Students need to have appropriate literacy and numeracy skills to satisfactory complete this qualification. Once qualified, you may work in your own clinic or in a practice with other allied health professionals, in aged care facilities, in a health service, a spa facility, or in a palliative care facility or hospital.

The qualification is comprised of core units essential for all professional therapists.

On completion of this qualification you will be able to join a professional association and become insured as a massage practitioner.

The Diploma of Reflexology is another popular option for further study to gain related qualifications. Some of the 'core' units of competency within the Certificate IV in Massage Therapy are also units within the Diploma of Reflexology. This means that you will gain direct credit for those completed units from the Cert IV when you enrol for training in Reflexology.

Duration: Approx 6-9 months

An enrolment fee of $100 is payable upon enrolment. The enrolment fee is in addition to the course fees and is a once only payment. Please see the current Course Guide (in Schedules,Forms & Guides page) for more information about payment options.
