Certificate IV in Bowen Therapy 10533NAT

Have you been thinking about a career change? Maybe you've been having Bowen for a while and have thought about sharing its benefits? Michael Alcott is a registered Bowen Therapy instructor with Bowen Training Australia and The Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia. You can start on the road to becoming a therapist with the Certificate IV in Bowen Therapy 10533NAT, which is a Nationally Recognised Training programme through Bowen Training Australia RTO# 41134. You may choose to progress to the Diploma of Specialised Bowen Therapy 10534NAT on successful completion of the Certificate IV.

The Certificate IV programme consists of seven (7) hands-on modules (each two days) where you learn the practical application of Bowen Therapy. These are the parts you can do with me. There are also distance modules relating to the theory around anatomy, physiology, health and safety and other essential aspects of good practice. You'll also need to attain your first aid certificate along the way. The Certificate IV can be completed part-time in a minimum of one year and up to 18 months. This allows time to complete log-book hours and case studies.

My next round of classes for 2017 are on:

Module 1          23rd and 24th of September 2017

Module 2          28th and 29th of October 2017

Module 3          2nd and 3rd of December 2017

Module 4          3rd and 4th of February 2018

Module 5          17th and 18th of March 2018

Module 6         5th and 6th of May 2018

Module 7          9th and 10th of June 2018

2018 class dates should be up by mid-year.

In the event that you ever can't make a class, you can always take it with another instructor as we are all teaching to a universal syllabus. See the Bowen Training Australia website for more classes and instructors. There's also information there about Credit Transfer and Recognition of Prior Learning processes. And, of course, if you have any questions, feel free to contact me!

Continuing Education

For those who are already practising Bowen Therapists and looking for some Continuing Professional Education, Practitioner Days are on:

Practitioner Day A         14th of October 2017

Practitioner Day B          15th of October 2017

Please note that these continuing education workshops are not part of the nationally recognised training, however they are Bowtech-accredited and eligible for continuing education points with Bowen Association Australia.

New! An Introduction to Bowen Therapy

Are you intrigued by Bowen but not sure about committing to a full course just yet? Would you like to learn a few moves to help at home with your family? Well, this 4-hour introductory course may be what you've been waiting for. Come along and learn some simple moves for the lower back, upper back, neck and knee and get a feel for if a career in Bowen may be up your alley.

The next introuctory day will be held at the clinic from 10am to 2pm on Saturday the 29th of July. You'll get notes to take home to help remind you of what you have learnt and some new skills to apply when someone at home has a bit of an ache and can't get to their regular therapist for a while for just $95. No need to bring anything bar yourself. We will be working through light clothing (anything to heavy makes it hard to learn), so no worries about being self-conscious either. Please make sure your nails are trimmed reasonably short though so there are no ouchies! Morning tea will be provided.

Please book here.

Please note that this introductory workshop is not part of the nationally recognised training, however it is Bowtech-accredited.

Lymphatic Drainage

Michael Alcott also teaches lymphatic drainage short courses for Endeavour College of Natural Health. The college has put these courses on hiatus while they redesign the programme, but check back here or the Endeavour website later in the year to see what's on offer.
