11 Day Course offered in London
Two London venues on offer:
This course is an investment into your future, you will be able to gain professional insurance and charge for treatments after taking this course.
Once you have paid the deposit to secure your place the balance can be paid as you train.
You can pay in 5 installments as you train to also help you budget (a £45 admin fee is charged to set this up for you) for either of the courses you book for, the weekend option or the weekday option.
You have a choice of taking the ITEC Massage course or if you wish to can train for the BTEC Massage course which is slightly more expensive. To view the differences please continue to scroll down this page for full information.
Choose to study your diploma and enjoy the very highest levels of training and support, from world class tutors all using the latest accelerated learning techniques.
Or if you prefer to take the BTEC qualification the deposit is the same but you just add £285.00 to attend the BTEC course.
Some students like to take the ITEC qualification and some like to obtain the BTEC qualification. They are both very similar (NVQ level 3) and as you cover both of these within your training you can choose at the end of this course if you want to take the ITEC exam - BTEC exam or both. This gives you excellent value for money as you cover both courses within your training.
You'll love developing your skills and confidence, learning:
In addition to attending the course you will need to complete 100 hours of massage practice outside class and some items of homework.
Your course includes detailed training in a large array of practical techniques, massage theory and Anatomy, Physiology & Pathology. The A&P part of this course is home study online which is a very popular way of learning at your own pace.
This in an intensive fast track course spread over just 4 months, 11 days of massage study in total.
If you cannot train during the week we also offer a weekend option - please note this is the minimum allowance for this course as ITEC will not allow any less than 3 months for your training due to case studies and practice time allowances.
All dates have to be covered, however if you miss any dates you will be able to book private catch up lessons at a very reasonable fee, so if you have a holiday planned or a wedding to go to and miss a couple of days you are easily able to catch up.
Anyone offering a full body massage diploma course over a weekend this would not be a long enough course for a level 3 as it needs to be a minimum of 80 - 100 learning hours.
It is important to know if you see a course offered over just one weekend for full body massage, you would not be able to use that qualification to attend advanced courses like sports massage, deep tissue massage, hot stone massage etc as they all require a level 3 in massage to attend and a weekend course will not give you this qualification.
This course offers you a level 3 in full body massage which is accepted for any advanced course with us or any other training school.
Yes, all you need is a desire to help others and a keenness to learn. If the course is your first experience of exams and studying, don't worry! The tutor understands that this is true for many of our students and our teaching approach is flexible, designed to help each individual study and practise in the way that works best for them.
This course is available to all, we have many students join this course from London and all around the UK & students also come to us from overseas.
YES - This Massage Therapist Course qualification is what you will need if you wish to go on and train in aromatherapy, sports massage, reflexology, hot stone massage, deep tissue massage etc. This is the foundation course you will need to begin with and will then allow you to become a professional therapist and add further training later in other areas if you wish to do so.
