    So, I am about to graduate from my school of massage therapy and will be attending an advanced course for a few more months before I move to Australia.

    I of course want to have some kind of job in the same career in my new home but am unaware of what is required for licenses and such.

    I am completing a 720 hour program as of Feb and will be gaining about 400 more hours in the advanced class before I go.


    Anyone have any ideas or clues?

    (Prefer to have real massage therapists who work in Australia reply please : )

    Badass thank you!

    Would you know if what is learned here in the USA can be transferred there?

    The tab on the website says you need to contact them if you want to transfer from another Association that recognises massage therapists. So I guess the starting point would be to join your national organisation and then go from there icon_smile.gif
