Study a Certificate IV in Massage Therapy at our
Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast or Cairns Campuses

Q Academy offers the Certificate IV in Massage Therapy throughout our Queensland campuses including Brisbane, The Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast & Cairns. The Certificate IV course is priced from just $442 (if you’re eligible for the QLD Government’s Higher Learning Subsidy). Read on to learn more about the course or contact us now to speak with a careers specialist. 

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!
