The New Diploma in Kinesiology

As of August 2015, mandatory changes to the Diploma in Kinesiology qualifications affected all Registered Training Organisations, and the Diploma in Kinesiology HLT51507 was replaced by the Diploma in Kinesiology HLT52415.

The Certificate IV HLT42812 was only available until December 2015 as a Nationally Accredited Course.

It was also considered the First Year of the Diploma Training. This is now called The Basic Kinesiology Program.

The Basic Kinesiology Program (First Year of Diploma) provides a well rounded and practical Kinesiology training AND allows you to be recognised by the two associations in Australia (ie. the Australian Institute of Kinesiology and the Australian Kinesiology Association) as an entry-level Kinesiology Practitioner.

The HLT52415 Diploma in Kinesiology is the minimum Nationally Recognised qualification recognised by the National Training Authority.

The first year program (Basic Kinesiology Program) is taught over 9 or 10 months, and is also considered as the First Year of training in the new Diploma in Kinesiology HLT52415 (2 - 2.5 years total training time), and fulfils the requirements for an entry-level practitioner with a local Kinesiology association mentioned above.

Kinesiology is very hands-on and requires the student to be face to face with the teacher to learn the pressure and skills of this magnificent modality. There will be plenty of practical experience in this course, ie. 10 face-to-face high quality professional Kinesiology units.

Students already undertaking the previously accredited qualifications, ie. Diploma HLT51507 or Certificate IV HLT42812 will have until a specified date to complete their current qualification.

HLT52415 Diploma in Kinesiology is accredited by:

- ASQA (the Australian National Training Authority)

- AKA (Australian Kinesiology Association)

- AIK (Australian Institute of Kinesiology)

- Qualifies for Austudy assistance (Centrelink approved)

- Health Funds require a Diploma in Kinesiology
