Key benefits

This weekend I attended the Introduction to Massage course. I was a little apprehensive to start with as it had been a long time since I was in a learning environment. The morning ice breaker enabled everyone to let their guards down and I became more at ease and settled into what was a fantastic course and learning experience.

To assist secondary students to get an additional qualification while still at school and develop skills in the healthcare industry, ACHF has developed a pathway within our allied health assistance program. This pathway allows students to study the theory of their course online during term time and undertake hands-on training and required industry placement during school holidays. The 120 hrs of industry placement will need to be sourced by the student and could be within an aged care, medical clinic, hospital setting or private allied health clinic (eg. physiotherapist, osteopath, chiropractor)

The HLT33021 Certificate III in Allied Health Assistance  is a nationally recognised qualification and may allow a flexible way to gain credit towards your ATAR score as a fifth or sixth subject. It also provides you with direct experience in the healthcare industry which can be used to show a genuine interest in healthcare when you apply for university courses such as medicine, physiotherapy or occupational therapy after you finish school.

Upon successful completion, you will have a nationally recognised qualification you can use to apply for part time or casual work to support yourself or provide some extra cash while you are studying at university in the future.

I want to become a Massage Therapist or Myotherapist – what do I have to do?2019-06-28T03:14:12+10:00
The Certificate IV in Massage is the initial qualification you require to become a professional massage therapist and you can either upskill to the Diploma of Remedial Massage or enter directly into the Remedial course if this is your desired outcome. This allows you to join massage associations and obtain professional insurance. You can work from home, in a clinic, mobile massage or even in the corporate massage sector.  You can then continue studying and complete your Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy.

The prerequisite for the Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy is the Diploma of Remedial Massage.

Do I have to do an introduction course before commencing the Certificate IV in Massage or full Diploma of Remedial Massage?2019-01-21T06:44:10+11:00
Your first firm step in your new career path is to enrol in one of our Introduction to Massage intensive courses.  This is the first subject in your Certificate & Diploma course, but also a very worthwhile stand-alone course.

You can enrol in the introduction classes as a short course without registering for the full Diploma course.  This structure gives you two major advantages.

Firstly, it allows you to test the water before you make a full commitment to the Certificate IV in Massage or Diploma of Remedial Massage.  The Introduction to Massage is deliberately structured so it is the foundation for the full Diploma course and is also a self-contained elementary course that will provide you with enough skills to give people the benefit of massage around the home or at the work place.

If you have any doubts about your choice of a career in Massage, then the introductory course is a must so you can test your aptitude for massage at low cost before you commit to the full Certificate or Diploma course.

The second advantage is this – taking this first Massage subject gives you a flying start on your Certificate & Diploma course and a new direction in life.

We ask students consider the” Introduction to Massage” course. The reason for this is that the “Introduction to Massage” course gives you the chance to experience the quality of our teaching and most of all the thrill of healing with your hands. You can determine your new career direction and take the first step at the same time.

The “Introduction to Massage” also course gives you the benefit of learning massage without committing to the Certificate IV or Diploma course.
