On Campus Massage Courses

Our on campus classroom courses are a great choice for any student looking for fun and supportive classes.

In class you will be taught to deal with a wide range of problems utilising basic and advanced massage techniques. Our massage therapy programs focus on “hands-on” learning.

This allows students to immediately put theory into practice. Students will also get to practise their skills in our Student Clinic. This is a great opportunity to learn massage skills in a real life setting.

Do the massage qualifications delivered by the ALG meet all private health fund standards?
Firstly, note all of the 50 health funds are setting their own unique set of education criteria. But in considering the general set of education criteria, health funds are publishing the following general advice that can be given. Mode of study – the mode of study i.e. full-time classroom versus distance education can impact if a health fund accepts a qualification for provider eligibility. Generally speaking programs that are done either as full time classroom programs or module based programs with predominantly classroom based modules are meeting the standards or all health fund standards at this present time. Programs that are completed predominantly by distance education are not being accepted by health funds. Certificate IV in Massage Therapy – some health funds will still accept the Certificate IV in Massage Therapy qualification to apply for provider status with their organisation. Diploma of Remedial Massage (versions HLT50307 and HLT52015) are generally meeting the requirements of all health funds, when completed in classroom programs or module based programs with predominantly classroom choice modules. Recognition of Prior Learning Credits – most health funds accept any course credits granted to student based on RPL. However, some health funds have indicated that RPL credits may not be acceptable if the prior learning credits did not meet their standards. We note that these are guidelines only and subject to further changes of individual health funds. Students are advised to speak with their chosen industry association for the most current provider eligibility criteria from each health fund. – Health Fund Information Sheet
