Physiotherapists use manual therapies and exercise programs to treat musculoskeletal conditions such as arthritis and sports injuries. They also assist with neurological conditions such as stroke.
Because of the demanding nature of the profession, physiotherapists often require assistants to help them with the day-to-day care of patients and to give clients additional time and contact.
This comprehensive and practical certificate might allow you to work in a wide variety of roles in allied health assistance.
You will learn the specialist skills needed to deliver exercise programs and support physiotherapy treatments for your clients. A work placement will help you build your contacts and allow you to gain real, practical skills in a clinic (or similar) environment.
Learn how to deliver and monitor exercise and mobility programs and assist in client movement and rehabilitation. Connect with other students online via the OpenSpace learning portal, where you can share knowledge, questions and resources.
As part of this course, you’ll also receive eligibility for professional recognition via membership of the Australian Physiotherapy Association.
