Infant massage course dates information.

Nationally accredited infant massage course dates
Places are strictly limited to small class sizes, to allow for individualised attention to your learning needs.

This course has four parts.


Pre-Enrolment
Block 1

Completed this at any time for free.

This block includes three short online infant massage modules (4-7 hours). No enrolment is needed to complete these subjects.

We recommend that you start (and, ideally, complete) these modules before formally enrolling in the next stages of the course. This will ensure that you get a “taste” of the course and are comfortable with online learning, before committing to the full course.

We are happy to make exceptions in some circumstances, and if you wish to enrol prior to commencing these modules, we ask that you contact our office in the first instance.

Block 2

You can start Block 2 after completing Block 1 and enrolling in the course.

This block is made up of 10 weeks of interactive online learning. Learning activities include video, readings and discussions, and a small assignment is due each week. Depending on your learning style, allow 3 – 6 hours a week to complete the set activities. In addition, trainer support is provided by phone, email and online discussions.

Block 3

Attend a 3-day training in your capital city. These infant massage workshops are held in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. These workshops will help bring together your theory knowledge and apply it in a practical setting. This includes working with real parents and babies under the supervision of your trainer during the three days.

Block 4

Following Block 3, complete your practical assessment by delivering the full First Touch Program with parents in your community. You will run all phases of a program from planning and promotion, through to delivery, and evaluation and reflection. Support will be provided in a combination of online materials and support from your trainer.

Approximately 70% of your assessment is completed during your 10-week online learning block (block 2).

After your face-to-face infant massage workshop (Block 3), you have a further four months to complete your practical and remaining assessment items.

However, you may request an extension up to 12 months from the commencement of your 10-week block, if required.

Please complete the free Foundation Course prior to enrolling (or contact our office if you wish to enrol prior to completing these modules).
