The Certificate IV in Massage Therapy is a great introduction to the world of massage. The course teaches Swedish, Thai, Sports, and Seated Massage techniques, so you can confidently provide a full-body relaxation treatment to clients. With this qualification you could work in a day spa, resort, beauty clinic, or start your own at-home massage clinic.
The Certificate IV is taught either full-time on campus as the first term of our full-time Remedial Diploma program or in our Self-Directed E-Classroom (SDEC) environment using our online course material if you need a more flexible and longer schedule.
If you’re looking for a long-term career in the industry, the HLT52021 Diploma of Remedial Massage is widely considered to be the minimum qualification due to its extensive treatment skills and ability for clients with private healthcare insurance to claim a rebate and Myotherapy as the ultimate manual therapy qualification. But the good news is you can always upgrade to the Diploma after completing the Certificate IV in Massage!
