What is Vibrational Healing?
Vibrational Healing is a term that covers many different forms of energy healing, through which the human energy field (also known as the aura) is repaired, strengthened and returned to a state of balance.

The College offers courses in a wide range of energy healing modalities, including Reiki, Kinergetics, Touch for Health, Integrated Healing, Body & Soul, SFEF Kinesiology, gem and flower essences, Chiron Healing® and many other kinesiology and energy healing modalities.

Is the College registered?
Yes, the College is accredited with the VRQA (Victorian Registration and Qualification Authority) as a Registered Training Organisation. Our scope of registration is continually being expanded to include additional qualifications in business, energy healing and complementary health.

Where is the College located?
Our head office and main training facility is at 79 Rooks Rd, Mitcham Victoria (parking available in Owen Street).  We arrange kinesiology classes with interstate trainers as necessary, and all of the health practitioner classes can be completed by facilitated home study.

  • HLT42812 Certificate IV in Kinesiology

Our in-house courses in Reiki, Therapeutic Touch, EMF Balancing Technique® and Chiron Healing® meet the practitioner requirements with relevant industry associations. See our Links page for industry associations.

What is kinesiology?
Kinesiology is a bio-feedback system that uses muscle monitoring to identify and correct imbalances and clear blockages that cause pain and ill health.  See our Kinesiology page for more details and course information.

Am I eligible for government funding?
If you live in Victoria, are an Australian or NZ resident, and do not have an equivalent or higher qualification to the course you wish to enrol in, you may be eligible. Click here for to check your eligibility and contact us for more information, we will be happy to discuss your specific situation.

I have a Health Care card and I am on a disability pension.  Can I get further financial assistance?
If you have a pensioner or Health Care card and you are eligible for government funding you will receive a significant discount as well as your Skills Victoria funding subsidy.  However, if you on a Job Seeker allowance you will need to ask your Job Agency for extra financial  support for your study instead.  Note that we do not normally offer pensioner discounts for non-funded students.

How long does it take to complete a Diploma course?
The timetable is structured to enable you to complete a Diploma in two to three years, including the Certificate IV which must be completed first. Our flexible study plans help you fit your studies into the other parts of your life.

Can I do the course over a longer period?
Yes, you can take as long as you need to complete your qualification. Re-enrolment fees apply for extended enrolments due to additional administration costs.

Can I study some subjects at home?
Yes, all of our health practitioner subjects are designed for home study.  The practical Kinesiology and Massage subjects must be done on campus.

What happens if I have already done similar subjects elsewhere?
We will be happy to help you identify whether your past training and experience meets the requirements for Recognition of Prior Learning in selected units.  Check out our RPL Page.

What payment terms are available?
We can set up a monthly payment plan so you can pay as you go, based on the cost and length of your course.

Can I get Austudy?

Yes, all our nationally accredited courses are registered with Centrelink so you can apply for Austudy, provided you meet their criteria.

Do you offer VET Fee help?
This is a government loan that allows you to pay back the cost of your studies once you are working.  Instead, we offer a monthly payment plan so you can pay as you study and avoid the long term debt.

Do you teach Touch for Health as part of your Kinesiology qualifications?
We recognise Touch for Health as an accredited kinesiology stream within the Certificate IV or Diploma of Kinesiology.  As an alternative, our Body & Soul everyday kinesiology offers a great set of skills to keep yourself and your family healthy, as well as supporting your clients.

Can I do the course with you if I live interstate?
Yes, we accept interstate enrolments, and will be happy to suggest local trainers for the practical components of your course.

Do you take international students?
No, we are not registered to accept students from overseas who have come to Australia on a student visa, although people who are living overseas are most welcome to enrol for facilitated home study.

Am I able to do one or two of the home study units? How much would that cost?
Yes you can.  The cost varies from one unit to another, and it’s a little more than our packaged price because we save administration time on packaged enrolments.   If you would like an accurate cost please contact us and our friendly staff will be happy to help.

Do I need to finish the Cert IV before I can do the Diploma course?
Yes, the Certificate IV in Kinesiology is a prerequisite for the Diploma course.

What does the administration fee cover?
It contributes to the running costs of maintaining our RTO registration so that we are authorised to issue your government accredited certificate.  This includes our RTO registration, and administration costs, student records and financial administration.  Our marketing and enrolment costs are covered by your subject fees.

What are the subject administration fees?
These cover the cost of your course manuals and study guides, and any additional administration fees relating to that specific subject.

Are there any additional fees or charges?
The quoted course fees include all in-house course manuals, enrolment fees and registration fees.  Additional fees apply for late payment of course fees, changes to study plans and subject extensions.  Additional costs also apply for external supervision or mentoring for some Diploma subjects.

What is the Health Training Package?
The Health Training Package is one of many nationally accredited training packages. It defines competency standards for a range of health industry qualifications.  Search for HLT07 on www.training.gov.au for details.
