Level 3 Sports Massage Course (May & August 2015)

A reminder for those interested in gaining a sports massage qualification that is recognised nationally by a Government-approved awarding body (Vocational Training Charitable Trust, VTCT) – a 7-day course will be running at the University between May 26th-29th (4 days) and then August 24th-26th (3 days).

The content of this Level 3 qualification is comprised of all the required elements needed to work effectively and efficiently as a sports massage therapist. This includes the practical application of anatomical and physiologal knowledge, key elements of professional practice, an understanding of the principles of health and fitness and how to provide sports massage treatments. Following successful completion of the course, the Level 3 sports massage therapist will be able to work safely and effectively on dysfunctional tissue in a range of context, to include, pre-event, post event, intra-event and for maintenance purposes. Indeed, those students who completed the course last year have since gained valuable experience working in a range of sporting environments, including mass participation ultra-endurance events and professional football clubs.

The cost of the course will be £600, with a deposit of £300 to paid by the end of April (one month before start date). As such, the course providers (Sporting Therapy) can facilitate instalments for those who can’t pay the full cost on immediately, so as to spread the cost across a further 3 x £100 payments for May, June and July.

If you are interested in attending this course then please get in touch with Danny Taylor (dtaylor@lincoln.ac.uk) to ask any further questions, register your details and to be updated with further information. Be aware that we already have students booked on the course and the number of places available may be limited, so the sooner you can get in touch the better.
