Career in Demand

There’s a big trend toward using natural therapies – especially in Australia. According to Complementary Medicine Australia, approximately 70% of Australians use complementary medicines, and the popularity of the use of complementary medicines and natural therapy modalities has remained consistently high and continues to grow. So, there’s never been a better time to start a career in one of the oldest forms of medicine.

Fit Study in With Your Life

If you want a flexible learning environment, we’ve got you covered. We’ve developed a blended option for our Certificate IV, Diplomas and Advanced Diploma courses. Our courses are a mix of theoretical and practical learning. Learn theory online during the week when it suits you, and get lots of hands-on, real-life experience in our labs, simulated work environments or on placement.

If you have questions or want more information on options that suit your learning needs, our highly experienced Course Consultants are here to help.

A hands-on career that makes a difference

Massage Therapists often become experts in several modalities requiring specific skills and techniques. VFA Learning provides two comprehensive courses – the HLT52015 Diploma of Remedial Massage and the 22316VIC Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy which provides the skills to widen the scope of a traditional remedial massage therapist.
