Sports Massage: Part-time evening course, Level 3 Diploma & Level 4 Certificate
The Sports Massage Therapy Package combines all of the qualifications you need to work successfully as a sports massage therapist, including both the Active IQ Level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage Therapy and the Level 4 Certificate in Sports Massage Therapy.
Delivered part-time, this qualification package covers everything you need know to work as an independent sole trader or in a clinical setting.
Inspirational environment, elite learning opportunities
The package is delivered in the world-leading sports environment of the University of Bath Sports Training Village, a fantastic place to learn from our elite practitioners and specialist Team Bath staff in an exceptional gym and elite training centre.
Practical sessions are also available providing the opportunity to work with elite sports people and teams like Bath Rugby, Team Bath Netball and the British Bobsleigh & Skeleton Association. This is not an essential requirement but will give you a head start in your new career.
New for 2020 – 8-week placement opportunities
For those who would like to work in a sporting environment, we are offering the opportunity to be part of a team providing soft-tissue support in a number of settings. You will learn how to work as part of a multidiscipline team, taking instruction from the team manager and physiotherapist.
You will also work with athletes on a consistent basis, providing an understanding of how the body responds to stress over the course of a season and how sports massage can help prevent injury.
