Study Remedial & Massage Courses In Cairns

Study a Nationally Accredited Massage Qualification in Cairns

We offer the following massage courses:

  • HLT42015 Certificate IV in Massage Therapy
  • HLT52015 Diploma of Remedial Massage

With the following funding options:

  • Queensland Government’s Higher Level Skills (HLS) Subsidy
  • Australian Government’s VET Student Loan  

Our courses can be completed full-time (2 days per week) or part-time (1 day per week) on-campus.

If you’re eligible for the HLS Subsidy your course fee for the HLT42015 Certificate IV in Massage Therapy is reduced to just a $442 or $208 (if eligible for a further concession). You can therefore save $4,000, and upgrade to the HLT52015 Diploma of Remedial Massage for just $6,500 (which can be funded by the Government’s VET Student Loan).

Contact us to find out if you’re eligible for the Queensland Government’s HLS subsidy, and if you’re also eligible for a Government VET Student Loan.

HLT42015 Certificate IV in Massage Therapy

If you’re a Queensland resident with no prior qualifications higher than a Certificate IV (in any field), you may be eligible for the Higher Level Skills (HLS) Subsidy.

This means the $4,000 course is subsidised by the Queensland Government, and your total to pay would be either $208 or $442 (depending on whether you qualify for a further concession). This could save you thousands of dollars on your course fees, and is a great way to help people enter the massage industry.

Delivery: 1 or 2 days per week on-campus

Start Date: New intakes Monthly

Duration: 6 months (full-time) or 12 months (part-time)

HLT52015 Diploma of Remedial Massage (Health & Wellness)

If you’re an Australian citizen, you may be eligible for the Government’s VET Student Loan. This means the cost of the course is funded by the Government, your only out-of-pocket contribution is the $100 materials fee which covers your student shirt, oil bottle, holster etc.

This qualification would make you eligible for your private provider numbers, which means you can offer your clients with private health insurance a rebate on their treatments.

Delivery: 1 or 2 days per week on-campus

Start Date: New intakes Monthly

Duration: 12 months (full-time) or 18-24 months (part-time)

Transparency and honesty are crucial to building trust and is a standard that all universities and reputable colleges abide by. At Q Academy, we don’t shy away from publishing our course fees. If a training organisation does not publish their fees, then its definitely worth reconsidering if you should even contact them if they are not open, honest, and upfront.

Complete Transparency
