Q Academy has been helping students achieve their goal of becoming massage therapists for decades. If you need any advice or assistance, please submit an online enquiry and a member of the team will be in touch shortly.

Q Academy has a range of massage courses to cater for all levels of training, experience and even modes of learning.

Courses range from the massage industry entry-level HLT42015 Certificate IV in Massage Therapy, right through to the highest level VET massage qualification in Australia: 22316VIC Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy.

For people interested in the HLT52015 Diploma in Remedial Massage, we also offer the ability to further specialise this qualification and add valuable skill set “Remedial Sports Therapy”

Most of these courses require no previous massage experience (Advanced Diploma excluded) and are the starting point in having a great career in physical therapies.


Yes, absolutely! We offer a number of short, specialised courses that are ideal for qualified therapists who would like to earn CPE points in order to maintain their professional currency. Some of our short courses include dry needling; myofascial cupping; hot stones; traditional flame cupping; and pregnancy and infant massage. These short massage courses begin at various dates throughout the year, so please do check the dates and campus information before you enrol.

Yes. In fact, if you are a Q Academy graduate, you are entitled to attend our first aid refresher course for free, for the rest of your career. While a first aid renewal will generally cost more than $100 every time you do it, we’ll save you the expense when you study with us. As a practising massage therapist, you will need to do a first aid course every three years in order to stay registered, so this is a great benefit in the long term.

We offer a range of massage courses to cater for all levels of training and experience.

For a full list of the qualifications we offer and for more course details, have a look at our course directory. With the exception of the 22316VIC Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy, most of our courses require no previous massage experience and are a great starting point for a career in the manual therapies.

Yes, absolutely! We offer online massage courses which allow students access to the same learning material as our on-campus students. If you choose to study online, you will get access to all of your course content in a digital manual with short, engaging video lessons presented by our experienced course developers. You’ll also receive one-on-one Skype sessions with a trainer and assessor to help you prepare for assessments and give you the chance to ask any questions and check your understanding or application of techniques. The final step in your online training will include supervised practical training hours at your nearest Q Academy Primary (Brisbane, Gold Coast or Sunshine Coast) or Secondary (Sydney or Melbourne) Student Clinic.

Yes, of course! We would love for you to visit us on campus. Our friendly career advisors are available to have a one-on-one chat with you, so you can get all the information you need if you are considering a career in massage. You can also take the opportunity to discuss your finance options and possibly see some classes in action. If you have the time, you are welcome to book yourself a massage at the student clinic to experience what our students have learned.
