We make quality training affordable for all for over 25 years.

This course is a level 3 qualification and the prerequisite for many more advanced massage courses, some shorter courses with other schools under £800 are often not to this standard, as not all courses are the same level.

For example this is the level needed to offer this within the NHS if you choose to do so and use it professionally and gain insurance to use it with your clients and in spas, salons and hotels.

Please be aware that anywhere that does offer a shorter or quicker course, often it is not a level 3 but only a level 2 which will often not cover everything needed for insurance. We often get students coming to us to retrain after attending with another school that does not run the course for enough hours to cover what is required.

Course Fee - £995.00

A deposit of £200.00 is payable when you book with us.

The remaining balance is paid to the course tutor and payment instalments are available, to help you budget. The tutor will be in contact with you as soon as you choose your date and book with us, they will send you full course information, payment options & directions to the venue and they will be available for any questions that you may have.

Course FAQs

Click on the question to reveal the answer.

What if I already have a level 3 in A&P?

If you already have a level 3 in A & P, as per ITEC rules it needs to be a level 3 regulated qualification of 3 years or less and mapped at least 80% the same as the ITEC syllabus. In this case, you will not need to repeat this qualification and you will receive a £195 discount on the balance owed. ITEC rules are very clear that they will only accept a level 3 regulated qualification which you passed up to 3 years ago.

The tutor may have to check your qualification with ITEC to approve it with them before you can obtain this discount. If your previous A&P qualification is not ITEC, there is an ITEC charge of £100 if you decide to see if your previous qualification will enable you to be exempt from this section of the course.

WHEN MAKING YOUR BOOKING - Please pay the deposit as usual and let the tutor know within the notes section of the booking form that you already have a level 3 in A & P and once confirmed they can take off the £195 from the balance you will need to pay them.

  •     If your previous A&P qualification is not ITEC,RPL consideration will be at a cost of £100 but if RPL is refused, no refund is permitted and the £195 A&P fee must be paid in order to complete the course.
  •     The RPL process can take up to 12 weeks so if the student wishes to book onto a course and be considered for RPL, the first course date must be more than 12 weeks away.
  •     If the student has a previous level 3 qualification or higher, they can only be considered for RPL if the previous qualification meets at least 80% ITEC/VTCT Certificate in Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology qualification (this course syllabus & criteria can be found on the ITEC website) For example, if a student has a previous ITEC Level 3 Diploma in Anatomy & Physiology, they can be considered for RPL but please note that only a pass mark will be awarded for this part of the course, which will effect the overall mark.
  •     Any previous Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology qualification must have been awarded no more than 3 years previous to be able to be considered for RPL.
  •     RPL is not guaranteed, it involves a process of cross-checking previous work against the current syllabus and this being verified by ITEC (the whole process can take up to 12 weeks)
Can I use this Training to Then Attend your Advanced Courses like Hot Stone Massage or Deep Tissue?

Yes you can use this as your foundation and you will be able to then go on to train in sports massage or any of our advanced training courses like hot stone massage, MLD, deep tissue etc with us or another school, safe in the knowledge that this professional qualification is accepted worldwide.

How are We Able to Offer this Course at Such a Competitive Price?

By completing the anatomy and physiology online (or already having this qualification) and attending the rest of the course (the massage section) at the chosen venue, this keeps the costs down, making this a very popular alternative.

As you are learning the anatomy and physiology in the comfort of your own home, (it has a very high pass rate due to the quality of our content and tutors) you do not have to pay extra to attend at a venue which usually puts the course price up.

Due to the popularity of this course and its affordable price, it is on a first come first served basis with regard to deposits to secure you place.

Please note the cost of the ITEC Massage Exam fee is just £160.00, this includes the A & P exam and all admin fees

Please note

ITEC issue an internationally recognised government body qualification, which is accepted by the other bodies like FHT, CTHA, etc.

These other professional bodies are not required to accredit an ITEC course as they already offer a government passed qualification, they all already accept and recognise this qualification so if you are with one of these professional bodies for your insurance you can add this training to it.

The following professional bodies below are just some (there are many more) who accept and recognise this qualification for insurance purposes, so that you can use this professionally as a self- employed therapist or a professional full time therapist working in a hotel or salon in the UK or overseas.
 

What is the Difference between the ITEC Massage Course and the BTEC Massage Course Qualification?

Many people ask us what is the difference between these two courses, BTEC is level 4 and ITEC level 3 however there is actually very little difference in the course content. Often students have already trained in other ITEC courses and wish to continue with them as they have enjoyed their high standard of training, others appreciate the pricing as it is often more reasonable than BTEC course costs.

This ITEC course is equivalent to an NVQ level 3 and is a professional qualification and will be accepted in all salons, clinics, gyms, corporate companies. You can also set up at home or mobile and gain insurance to work with the general public and charge for your massage as a professional therapist. Whether you train with us or another training company you should look for an ITEC level 3 or above qualification.

Pass Rate

The tutors' pass rate has been 100% for massage; this is down to the small classes of no more than 14 students, giving you the individual attention required.

ITEC online Infection Prevention unit short course

ITEC exam fee and online Infection Prevention unit short course.

There is a £160 fee is payable for the ITEC exam administration costs (Please note the exam fee is not an extra Gateway fee, ITEC charge this regardless of which school you sign up with to take this course, they are standard charges) this is an ITEC fee, which is set by ITEC and the same for all schools you take this exam with. ITEC now also have an online Infection Prevention unit and exam for the Diploma in Massage qualification, if you wish to get more information about this your tutor can help you this is not compulsory you only take it if you wish to. The aim of this unit is to develop the learner’s knowledge and understanding of how to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and how to work safely.

Learners will develop knowledge on the importance of social responsibility, the causes, transmission and effects of COVID-19, and the methods used to control transmission, such as correct hand hygiene and the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). They will also gain an understanding of the safe working practices required to protect themselves and their clients. You will be provided with the documents to study by your tutor and will take the short exam during the during your course if you wish to study this but it is not compulsory.


 

Do you offer instalment payments?

Yes

You only have to pay a small deposit to secure your place and you can pay the balance for your massage training in instalments, to help you budget.

You can pay the balance straight away if you wish or up to 21 days before your course starts, giving you time to budget if needed.

This means you can book a course on our site in January for example, that is not starting until June and you would not need to pay the balance until May if you wanted to take advantage of the instalment payments.

Once you have paid your deposit, you can pay the balance in full or the final course fee can be paid in 3 affordable instalments if required and the tutor will send you information for this with their booking confirmation.

Can I gain insurance with this qualification AND Who do you recommend?

Yes you can gain insurance with this qualification - We highly recommend therapist Insurance cover with Westminster, allowing you to practice professionally.

Westminster offer a brilliant cover at a very reasonable cost and came out as the number one company that our students think are the very best and who they use year after year.

You will be given information for insurance cover and much more in our manuals that you get on the day of your training; you can also find this information on our website.

Is this course ok for complete beginners with no massage experience - Do I need a level 1 or 2 in massage to join this class?

This course is perfect for complete beginners looking for a recognised professional qualification in massage that you can use professionally and charge clients for a massage once completed and passed.

You do not need level one to attend as this is up to level 3 (so it includes levels 1 & 2) you can attend without having done any previous training.

Why do other schools run this course over 10 - 14 days and charge more?

ITEC ask that the practical training is covered with the correct learning hours and days required and we have 100% pass rate for this.

Please be aware of courses that are 3 days or less this is not a level 3 qualification.

Other schools run this course over a longer period because they ask you to attend at the venue to also learn the Anatomy & Physiology. However to keep the number of days down that you attend and have to travel, the Anatomy & Physiology is learnt online, in the convenience of your own home.

This way you do not have to travel to the venue for the A & P part of the course so often, which keeps travel expenses down and also our overheads down and this is why we can offer this course at such a great discounted price!

Is there any way my previous studies can contribute to an ITEC Level 3 in Massage and I could speed up the process of becoming certified for insurance purposes?

You will need to complete the whole course to be issued with an ITEC certificate if this is the pathway you chose. You may be able to miss out the A&P section but you will only be issued a 50% pass for this section of the course which would reflect in your overall grade.

Please see information taken from the ITEC website which says:

If the previous qualification is an ITEC qualification, then the student will receive the ITEC pass mark for the unit that is applied for.

If a student has e.g. a VTCT Anatomy and Physiology qualification and wishes to use this for RPL on the ITEC A&P unit within the Massage Diploma.

The college must make the student aware that the student will not have to do the ITEC exam, however only a pass mark of 50% will be given on the A&P unit as the original assessment was not carried out by ITEC.

This will definitely reflect in the overall mark and students would not be able to obtain a distinction. The college must complete the RPL form attached and return with a copy of the student's previous qualification. This must be sent to ITEC with the enrolment form.

This in an intensive fast track 6 days ITEC massage course which is spread over just a few months.

Do I need a level 1, 2 or 3 in full body massage to join this class?

No

This course is perfect for complete beginners with no previous massage experience.

A recognised professional qualification in sports massage that you can use professionally and charge clients for a sports massage once completed and passed.

Small classes, giving you individual attention, a maximum of only 14 per class.


Can I take one of your advanced massage courses like pregnancy, hot stone, MLD etc after I complete and pass this sports course qualification?

Yes you can

This qualification is acceptable for you to then continue onto learning the more advanced massage one day courses with us.


This is intensive but is easy to learn in just 6 days

Please note this is spread over approximately 3-4 months as ITEC does not allow consecutive days as you will need to do case studies in-between.

You will need to complete all 6 days to complete the course and take the exam which is held approximately a month after the course ends.

If you miss a date due to illness (a doctor’s note will be required) you can catch up with the routine via our online video. You will then be required to have a Skype session with the tutor to ensure you stay up to date with the class.

You will be required to catch up on anything that you have missed in your own time so you can still continue the course and take the exam. One course date can only be missed with proof of a doctor’s note and if two course dates are missed, you will need to start and pay for the course again.

ITEC level 3 Sports Massage Course is fast track and the 6 days practical massage training is spaced over approximately 3-4 months.


Why are other Diploma Sports Massage Courses run over a Weekend or 2/3 Days?

What is the difference and why will I benefit doing this course?

Weekend diploma sports massage courses that some other schools offer are not long enough for a training school to allow you to then train in advanced courses like hot stone massage, deep tissue etc. 

The requirement is at least 6 days training for a level 3 qualification. If you attend a shorter course this is only level 2 and not the level required to continue your massage training.

You will not be able to join FHT or many other professional bodies unless you have an ITEC 3 or above in full body massage or Sports Massage and a weekend course will NOT provide you with this level.


Many students come to us to retrain after finding out their qualification with other schools for around £300 - £600 was only a level 2 and not accepted by insurance companies to practice with the general public professionally.

They come to us to then train for the required hours needed which is only achievable over 6 days (hence being more expensive) but please be aware you get what you pay for! There is a reason why other schools’ courses can be so cheap and only over a couple of days.

Pass Rate

The tutors' pass rate has been 99-100% for massage; this is down to the small classes of no more than 14 students, giving you the individual attention required.

Tutor Feedback
A lovely down to earth and approachable tutor. She is very knowledgable and I have really enjoyed being taught by her. I felt that I could ask her anything without fear of feeling like a wally lol I would recommend this course to anybody considering Sports massage therapy and to book in with Kirsty as their tutor, she puts in a lot of hard work to make sure that her students are wel prepared for the exams.
