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!
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.
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.
