Our 11 and 23 day courses lead to a level 4 or 5 BTEC Professional Diploma in Sport & Remedial Massage Therapy. Either of these qualifications will give you the skills needed to practice as a professional therapist, requiring that therapists are able to design and implement appropriate treatment and rehabilitation plans.
BTEC has considered and accepted every element of these courses - including assignments - allowing us to achieve very high levels of competency.
What is the difference between BTEC Levels 4 & 5?
The main difference between the two qualifications is that Level 5 has more emphasis on the client evaluation and assessment and treatment of complex conditions. It also requires that the therapist can formulate and justify hypotheses as to the cause of presenting conditions.
Level 4: enables the therapist to apply safe and effective remedial and sports massage techniques, taking into account physiological and psychological influences.
Level 5: further develops the ability of the therapist to make decisions through analytical processes that can lead to an effective treatment of soft tissue conditions.
The Highest Standard
Qualifying at Level 4 & 5 allows you to work in private practice or within the highest level of sport. Some of our graduates are now working with premier sports men and women. Others have gone on to join established health teams and clinics or have started their own independent clinics.
Graduates of both levels can also become members of The Sports Massage Association (SMA) and the Register of Remedial Masseurs and Manipulative Therapists (LCSP).
