How is the course delivered?

About 30% online and 70% in person.

Traditionally Kinesiology has always been taught in face-to-face classes. Realising that doesn’t work for everyone, I have created a beautiful Online Learning Platform where you can instantly download your textbooks, introduction webinars and video demonstrations with 24/7 access. It acts as a Kinesiology Library where you can look up anything, whenever you need it. The online portion is completed first for each unit and acts as a preparation for the Face-to-face classes.

I have found by giving my students these extra tools and support, they walk into class with confidence and we can spend our time together learning the hands-on aspect of Kinesiology, in a fun and relaxed environment.

This Online Learning Platform has been invaluable during 2020, and we were able to move to a completely online format during lockdown and continue our studies. Fortunately, we are back to Face-to-face classes, but we are easily able to switch back if needed in the future.

How much time per month do I need to dedicate to my study?

We usually cover one unit every month. Depending on your learning style, it takes an average of 20 hours to complete it. This includes: 2 hours reading your textbook, 4 hours watching the webinars and demonstration videos, 8 hours for our Practical Class and 6 hours to complete your homework assignment. Of course, this will vary for each student, but the beauty of including the Online Learning Platform is that you can study where and when it suits you.

After the completion of Level 1, you can move to a full-time course load if you wish, completing 2 units per month.

I’m not very IT savvy. Will I be able to complete the online portion easily?

Absolutely! The Online Learning Platform is simple to use and lovely to look at. You just log onto the website and click the video you wish to watch.

I’m not a good student. Can I do this course?

First of all-that is not true. I don’t believe that there are ‘good’ and ‘bad’ students. You just need to be taught in a way that speaks to your learning style. The way I have designed the delivery of this course does just that. I adapt my teaching methods so every student gets what they need. One of my best skills as a teacher is to break down the content and deliver it in a way that is easy to understand. So yes- you can definitely do this course.

What type of Kinesiology do you teach?

I teach PKP (Professional Kinesiology Practitioner) Kinesiology provided by ICPKP (International College of Professional Kinesiology Practice). The course is developed By Dr Bruce Dewe – a medical Doctor with over 40 years experience, and Joan Dewe.

I have previously studied Kinesiology or another related modality. Do you recognise my prior learning?

Absolutely. I have many students who have studied previously and all prior learning is recognised, both academically and financially. We just sit down together during your enrolment period and work out where your qualifications fit in. You will still get access to the units and revision material for the units you don’t have to complete.

What if I miss a face-to-face class?

That’s ok. I record every class so you will be able to watch what you missed in your own time. We can then arrange a one on one tutorial to catch you up, or you can repeat the practical class next time it is run. In fact, I encourage all of my students to repeat classes more than once. You are always welcome and it is always free to repeat.

I have a young family. Can I do this course around them?

Yes, you can. I created this school with a 6-week old baby, and before long I had two babies under 2. We are a very family-friendly school and we understand that your family is your number one priority. That is why it is so flexible and supportive.

I used to bring my second son to class with me when he was 5 weeks old. If you have a small baby, they are more than welcome to join us in class. As long as I get to have a cuddle.

How much does the course cost? And what are your payment terms?

LEVEL 1: $7,260 incl. GST (11 units over 12 months)
LEVEL 2: $15,180 incl. GST (23 units over 2.5 years)
LEVEL 3: $13,200 incl. GST (20 units over 2.5 years)

The cost of each unit for all levels is $660 incl. GST.
There are three payment options you can choose from, and I offer generous payment plans. Full details are on page 9 of the course guide. Keep in mind that you are able to start charging for your services after the first 12 months. Many level 2 students and all level 3 students pay their course fees from the income they have earned seeing clients. Once your business is registered, your course fees are also tax-deductible.

How long does it take to get qualified?

You can register as a Student Practitioner and start charging for your services after completing Level 1 (12 months) and upon enrolment of Level 2.

You will receive your full qualification after the completion of Level 2 (a further 2.5 years).

After the completion of Level 1, you can move to a full-time course load if you wish, completing 2 units per month. Some of my students complete Level 2 and Level 3 at the same time.

There is no rush though. I want you to be an amazing practitioner and do brilliant work. It’s completely fine to take your time and work at your own pace.

How much can I earn as a Kinesiologist?

It is completely up to you how many hours you want to work, but as a guide:

– Student practitioners can charge around $80/hour.

– Fully qualified practioner can charge between $100 – $120/hour

– Senior practioner charges around $150/hour.

Are there any extra tools I need to start this course?

You will need an iPad to get started. During the first year, we recommend you purchase a massage table so you can practice on your volunteers.

I don’t live in Melbourne. Can I still study with you?

Yes, you can. I have many students who live interstate and still study with me. There are many options and we will find one that works for you.

What extra support do you offer me as a student?

I have created a beautiful Online Learning Platform which acts as a Kinesiology Library that you can access at any time to find additional resources to support your learning. I also arrange Level 1 students free Kinesiology sessions with my Level 2 and 3 students (you get support- they get experience) throughout the year to help you. Students are also welcome to join my client list. I no longer take on new clients unless you are a student.

I also help you grow your business by advertising your services on my website and referring all new client enquiries directly to my students and graduates to book into their own clinics.

I also offer you compassion and flexibility. I genuinely want you to succeed and I will work with you to make sure that happens.
