Q. Do you allow credits on previous training?
A. Yes, these take the form of cross credits based on units that possess a national code or RPL’s based on non accredited training or old training prior to the introduction of the training packages.

Q. How do I enroll in your course?
A. First of all, you will need to request from us a copy of our payment plan so that the correct payment or deposit can be sent to us. In addition, download from our website our enrolment form. As it is an electronic form you can type all of the information into the designated fields and then email this back to us. From there we will make all of the necessary arrangements.

Q. What are the benefits of Bowen therapy
A. In body or tactile therapy in Australia most modalities fall within two categories either you are a soft tissue worker or a skeletal bone worker. This to our way of thinking is too narrow as body mechanics encompasses all of the body’s tissues. Our interpretation of Bowen therapy integrates bone, joints, tendons, ligaments, muscles and fascia altogether to provide a much better understanding of what the problem is and how to correct it.

Q. How do you train students?
A. The practical workshop units are provided in a classroom. The trainers demonstrate the various methods on a student and then everyone practices the techniques on one another under supervision. Assignments and case studies round off the training in this area.

The common units are mostly completed by distant education using a manual of instruction. Regular phone calls from the instructor, videos of actual classroom instruction on the subject and in the near future a virtual class room supplementation is provided.

Q. How long does it take to complete the course?
A. Each course is designed to take 12 months to complete. The two in one course takes the same amount of time as a single course. So it will take an average student 2 years to reach the diploma level. However if you have a large number of credits from another award you may be able to shorten the time by up to 50%.

Q. What makes your Academy different from other schools.
A. Owing to our understanding of integration principles we offer courses that are unique eg. The 2 in one course. In our opinion the advantage of integration gives to the student greater skills in their practice, all at a reasonable cost.

Q. What are my career opportunities after completing the course?
A. There are a few different directions that you may take. You can foster your own business part time either running it from home or by joining in with an existing complementary clinic in your area. You may be able to find employment either full or part time at an existing clinic.

Q. Are all of your manuals provided in the course cost?
A. The majority of them are, however the text on Nutrition is not included as is outlined in the payment plan document.

Q. Is there any student support available during the course?
A. Support is given by trainers during the workshops, skill refining sessions and clinical practice days. Support is also given via the phone or emails during office hours to assist in answering any query that might be forthcoming.
