FAQs

From payment options to practical skills, we've answered the most frequently asked questions about our sports massage courses.

Do I need any prior qualifications?

There are no formal prerequisites for the Level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage, however, it would be desirable to possess a Level 2 Fitness Instructor qualification.

Above all else, you'll have the desire to help people all ages and backgrounds alleviate pain and improve function.

What will I learn whilst studying to become a sports massage therapist?

On your journey to become a sports message therapist, you'll learn: anatomy and physiology for sports massage; professional practice in sports massage; the principles of soft tissue dysfunction; and sports massage treatments.

Are these recognised sports massage courses?

All our sports massage therapist courses are certificated by the industry's original awarding body, YMCA Awards. We are also fully accredited by REPs.

What are my payment and funding options?

Our aim is to make it as easy as possible for you to book your place on a sports massage course.

If you're ready to pay up front and in full then you'll be eligible for a 5% discount on the total course or package price.

For those looking to spread the cost, our affordable six-month or 12-month payment plan lets you pay in bite-sized instalments.

What opportunities are available after I complete my course?

Becoming a qualified sports massage therapist opens up a range of opportunities. The self-employed route is incredibly popular with many massage therapist choosing to operate their own clinics and practices. There's also the opportunity to work closely with sports professionals, such as athletes and footballers, and their respective teams/clubs.

What support can I expect on my sports massage course?

As with all our courses and qualifications you’re entitled to unlimited support from our dedicated team of tutors. There are no limits to the amount of resources you can access including mock exams, the HFE app and career advice.
