IMST BRINGS YOU A FIRST TO IRELAND FOR ALL LEVEL 4 SPORTS THERAPISTS!
NEW ITEC LEVEL 5 SPORTS MASSAGE COURSE (FETAC LEVEL 6/7)
This is our most comprehensive and advanced Sports Therapy course. We were the first ITEC college in the country to be recognised and accredited to run this course.
The ITEC level 5 Certificate in Sports Massage has been designed to provide experienced practitioners currently working in sport and active leisure, including osteopaths, physiotherapists, sports therapists and sports massage practitioners with the requisite understanding and complex skills and techniques to work as an advanced sports massage practitioner. Advanced practitioners will be equipped to work with clientele ranging from recreational sport and active leisure enthusiasts to professional sports persons and elite athletes.
The focus of this course is to advance the existing therapist’s skills, to be able to offer more in-depth assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of the more complex, complicated and chronic injuries.
