Other Certificate courses:

Like many other industries massage teaching institutions can apply for their graduating students to be certificated under the umbrella of the state owned monopoly known as the NZQA. We are not affiliated or connected with NZQA in any way and yet our massage certificates are widely accepted with our graduates employed in clinics, spa's and medical centres in New Zealand and Australia, or are self employed in other countries.

Assessments

United Kingdom
In 2008 the government’s will enforce its’ policy of extending public protection by encouraging the voluntary regulation of complementary therapies including massage. Regulation of Massage Therapy is a process that will ensure that practitioners are trained and qualified to a specified standard and a register will be held for the public to find such qualified therapists and where complaints can be made about such registrants.
Registration is entirely voluntary and therapists will still be able to practice even if they do not register. If a therapist qualifies some years ago there will be a system known as grandparenting, where providing you are able to demonstrate you aer experienced, and up to date with your therapy, you will still be able to join the register.
Further and more up to date information can be gained from the General Council For Massage Therapy. www.gcmt.org.uk

Australia
Australia does not require massage therapists to be registered to practise. Registration or accreditation of healthcare professionals is a State and Territory matter and has no connection with the Commonwealth Acts and Regulations.
Massage therapists are required to comply with relevant Australian legislation, including:
National Health Act 1953
The Privacy Act 1998
Therapeutic Goods Act 1989
Australian Workplace Safety and Standards Act 2005 and Regulations 2005.6
Massage therapists are also required to comply with state-based legislation.
Negligence and duty of care are areas of civil law that massage therapists should understand and respect in their practice.
