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 you 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.

2015 TIMETABLE RELEASE

 
ACM is pleased to announce the early release of our 2015 on-campus class dates and timetables in training locations nationwide.

Midday & Evening Timetables

New in 2015 are Wednesday Midday and Monday Evening April Intake timetables in Sydney, Brisbane and Perth. The midday and evening timetable options have been very popular and successfully run in Melbourne for many years offering students the flexibility to attend on-campus for just a few hours each Wednesday between school drop off, around uni or part-time work. The alternate Monday evening classes are also a popular option for full time workers as you can attend class for just a few hours each week in the evening.

Summer School Program

The very popular January Summer School classes are back in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. What’s new in 2015 is the addition of a January Summer School timetable in Adelaide. The January Summer School is a great on-campus study option to complete your diploma practical studies face to face and fulltime Monday-Friday over the month of January in all our major capital cities. Students complete Subject 1 Introductory Massage prior to January and Subject 16 Massage Practice 2 at a later date and location of their choice.

New On-campus Timetables in Regional NSW – Orange & Lismore

ACM is always reviewing its locations and looking to expand to meet the needs of enquirers and students. Commencing in 2015 we are offering new on-campus face to face training in Orange in Central NSW with Introductory Massage courses in October this year leading into a further on-campus practical subjects in April.

In response to enquirer demand for face to face training in this region ACM will be offering on-campus training in Lismore in 2015. Introductory Massage courses are scheduled for November this year and remaining Diploma of Remedial Massage practical subjects can be studied on-campus from April.

April August & November intakes

ACM SUPPORTS RELAY FOR LIFE - Supporting the cancer council and giving back to the community

 

Initiated over 20 years ago Relay For Life is increasingly popular with thousands of events taking place across the globe every year.

It’s a non-stop 24 hour team relay where team members remember those who lost their lives to cancer and raise funds for those who are fighting back. Team members work together to keep their relay baton moving overnight while enjoying the festive atmosphere.

In Australia RFL raises over $14 million annually for the fight against cancer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


ACM has been supporting this uplifting and inspiring event Australia-wide for many years, with students and graduates enjoying the opportunity to give back to the community through massage in return for gold coin donation. 

Read about some previous RFL events in Darwin  Bendigo or the Latrobe Valley and the massage support provided by local ACM students, lecturers and staff.

Check the Relay For Life website for upcoming events in your area, and details on how to donate to this great cause. ACM is proud to support volunteer community events. Check our Event page for more events in your area.

“What a wonderful experience massaging at Relay For Life was. It was much more than giving massage, which is always a pleasure. This event also gave back, not only with thanks from the grateful people we massaged but also with the emotion of people who celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost to cancer, and fight back against a disease that takes too much.” ACM Diploma student Jenny
