For over twenty years Australian College of Massage (ACM) has been recognised nationally as a leading college in the provision of accredited massage training. To maintain our high standards ACM continues to review the key elements of the government recognised qualification being delivered - HLT40312 Certificate IV in Massage Therapy Practice and HLT50307 Diploma of Remedial Massage - to ensure it meets the rigorous standards expected by educationalists, employers and practitioners in the industry who have worked with ACM to determine specific training and education needs of workers, volunteers and students.

From a student’s perspective it can be tempting to choose a course provider based on how quickly you can complete the qualification or the cost involved. However, you may ultimately be doing yourself a disservice, making it harder to gain employment or deal with challenges within the workplace. ACM has a strong history of commitment to producing outstanding massage therapists who are committed to and understand the important role they play within complementary health care. Operated by educators with over 50 years combined experience in tertiary and VET education, ACM delivers training built on a solid platform of sound educational principles, ensuring the graduate is well prepared for entering the massage industry.

There are many elements to a high-quality education but first and foremost we offer you the following advice: community fieldwork is essential to equip students for the workplace and enables you to put your skills into practice while being supervised professionally. ACM has built up a relationship with hundreds of organisations around Australia to ensure you have the opportunity to practice massage within the real life context. Today most employers expect graduates to be work ready, bringing both theoretical and practical knowledge and skills to the workplace. ACM training includes clinical practice to ensure you are work ready upon graduation.

A qualification can be the first step to a career and choosing the right course can make a difference. Don’t hesitate to explore ACM’s study options and give us a call on 1300 880 885 or email us on acm@studymassage.com.au if you have any questions.

GRADUATE STORY - Caroline Crivera


Caroline transitioned from the advertising industry to a career in massage and now enjoys working for herself, helping others and working in a peaceful environment.

What do you enjoy most about massaging?

It's really a career that keeps on giving. I love going to work as every day there are different challenges and my clients are so grateful for the positive effects my treatments are having on their lives. It's a fantastic feeling to finish up for the day knowing that you have improved someone’s' quality of life.
 
Aside from this, massage has given me the ability to open my own business and create an environment and experience for others that is unique to Melbourne.

"Milk & Honey is unique in that it is a mix between spa & clinic. I felt that there was nowhere I could go to get a therapeutic massage in a relaxing environment."


What has been the highlight of your career so far?

On a personal level - there have been a handful of clients with chronic pain which I've been able to eradicate and literally change their lives.
 
On a business level - Milk & Honey Remedial Massage was listed as one of the top five places to get a massage in Melbourne by Time Out. I've recently moved the business from home to Victoria St, West Melbourne and employed another therapist.

How was your experience at ACM?

When looking for courses, ACM was the most flexible and meant that I could easily continue my full time job, whilst studying. The course structure is well thought out and I found my lecturers to be very knowledgeable and made it fun to learn both the hand skills and the theory.

"I loved that you could do the home study online and in your own time. The student portal and website are very user friendly, and there was always support from the lecturers should you need while off campus as well."
