Updates to Certificate IV in Massage Therapy and the Diploma of Remedial Massage
Massage & Myotherapy Australia have been advised by SkillsIQ, under the direction of the Complementary Health Industry Reference Committee (IRC) and the Massage Therapy Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), is undertaking a project to update the existing Certificate IV in Massage Therapy, the Diploma of Remedial Massage, eight existing Units of Competency and two new Units of Competency, to ensure that workers in the sector have access to relevant skills and knowledge in order to meet the current and future needs of the Australian Complementary Health sector. Therapists who are interested may leave feedback on the Draft 1 Training Package Products from Thursday, 26 November 2020 until Thursday, 24 December 2020 on SkillsIQ’s Online Feedback Forum which can be accessed here.
The newly proposed Advanced Diploma of Remedial Massage does not form part of this consultation. It is currently under development and will be consulted on at a later stage. A survey requesting feedback on what should be included in the Qualification is currently underway. The survey can be found here. Participation in the survey is optional.
