Find out how much time you will need to commit to this course, and the session times/ timetable for each block:

Pre-Entry Course Work

Commitment:

To complete this part of the course, you complete three, short modules online.

Combined, these modules contain approximately 4 hours of course material and teaching. You should allow another 2-4 hours to take notes, review materials, and complete the short quizzes.  You may need to allow some additional time if you are new to using online learning, or if you do not have any previous qualifications relating to early child development.

Infant Massage Workshop Times:

There is no time limit to complete this block. You can commence any time, and complete the activities in your own time, at your own pace.

Online Course Work:

Commitment:

This block is held over a 10-week time period. Most students will need to allow 3-6 hours per week to complete the combination of activities and assignments.

Infant Massage Workshop Times:

Activities can be completed at a time in the week that suits your own needs as all materials will be available throughout the week.

However, you will be required to complete and submit an assessable task each week, during this block. The final assessment task is due one week following completion of this block (i.e. week 11).

Face-to-Face Workshop:

Commitment:

This block is held over 3 consecutive days. You must attend all three days of the workshop.

Infant Massage Workshop Times:

A typical timetable is:

Day 1: 9am – 5pm

Day 2: 9am – 5pm

Day 3: 9am – 3:30pm

Practical and Practice:

Commitment:

You complete this block after attending the three-day face-to-face workshop. Most students will need to allow 20-30 hours to complete this block.

During this block you will be delivering a full First Touch infant massage program to five families in your community. You run this program over five (1 – 1.5 hour) weekly sessions. In addition, you will complete a number of tasks including planning and promoting your infant massage class. You will also complete an evaluation afterwards. Therefore, at a bare minimum you need to allow at least 6-7 weeks to complete this block.

You may need to allow additional time to find enough families to work with if you live in a smaller community. Likewise, you may need to allow additional time to meet the course requirements if you live in a community with lower levels of parent engagement.

Infant Massage Workshop Times:

You have four months (following your face-to-face workshop) to complete this final part of your course.

However, you may request an extension of up to 12 months from the date of your initial enrolment (Block 2) to complete this block. This will allow you flexibility to meet course requirements.

Important note:

We are currently phasing out the full four-day face-to-face version of this training program, where all course content is delivered during a four-day workshop. Self-directed learning and assessment tasks are completed following attendance at the workshop.

We have a limited number of places available in the remaining scheduled 4-day course structure.

Sessions are held from 9am – 5pm. We strongly suggest that during the training program, you do not schedule other activities as there will be a small amount of preparation and review you will need to undertake between each day.

Following the workshop, you will need to allow 50 – 60 hours to complete the required tasks and assessment activities.

You have four months to complete the self-directed tasks and assessment items, following your 4-day workshop. However, an extension of up to 12 months from the date of your training workshop is available on request.
