That is why the Q Academy qualification is seen by most employers as the Industry Benchmark.

 Highest Student Satisfaction Rating


Q has the highest student satisfaction rating possible (see every class testimonial since 2006 below) which is why over 30% of our new students are referred to us by our past graduates. See what over 1000 graduates have said about their training and time at Q Academy

Medibank and HCF Compliance

Since changes came into effect in November 2013, graduates of the Diploma of Remedial Massage wishing to obtain provider numbers from Medibank, must satisfy Medibank's reformed minimum education standard requirements.

As dictated by Medibank's requirements, the Diploma of Remedial Massage course must be a minimum duration of an Academic year for full time study, or 18 months part-time. A minimum of 20% of the course is to be conducted on campus supervised by a trainer with the appropriate qualifications. The practical components of massage therapy courses must include surface anatomy, palpation, clinical examination, assessment of conditions, treatment plans, tactile therapies massage techniques and other associated therapeutics and techniques. Not all massage courses provided by other massage schools satisfy these requirements, so careful consideration when selecting a massage course and a massage school should be taken.

Students graduating from the Q Academy HLT52015 Diploma of Remedial Massage on-campus courses will satisfy all of the stated requirements, therefore making Q Academy's on-campus graduates Medibank compliant and also HCF compliant.
