LEVEL 3 & 4 COMBINED

SPORTS MASSAGE THERAPY

LEVEL 3 DIPLOMA

SPORTS MASSAGE THERAPY

NOW

Previously our L3 Diploma in Sports Massage we now offer a L3 and L4 combined to match the highest standards in the industry. ITEC/VTCT Level 4 Certificate in Sports Massage Therapy enables learners to gain the necessary practical skills and knowledge to provide Sports Massage Therapy to the general public

 

     

COURSE OVERVIEW 

To fall in line with the Sports Massage Regulator (CNHC) new requirements, we will no longer be offering a stand-alone Level 3 Sports Massage course, as CNHC will not accept this for registration.   You may be able to take Level 3 Sports Massage as a stand alone course with other providers, but not with Active Health Group, as we do not feel that it is in the best interest of our students to offer them a course that will not be recognised when they graduate.  

We now offer a combined Level 3 and 4 course, and we have reduced the combined cost compared to what it would cost for separate Level 3 and Level 4 courses.​​

Upon successful completion you will be able to join all of the following organisations:

  • Sports Therapy Organisation - Leading Sports Therapy Professional Association

  • Sports Massage Association - Leading Soft Tissue Therapy Professional Association

  • Federation of Holistic Therapists - Professional Association and Accredited Register

  • CNHC - Sports Massage Regulator and Accredited Register
