Frequently Asked Questions

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. Our courses include the benchmark qualification in massage, the HLT52021 Diploma of Remedial Massage, through to the highest VET-level qualification; the 22316VIC Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy. 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 video 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 Clinic in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Cairns or Sydney. 

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.
