Diploma of Kinesiology (HLT 52415)

The HLT52415 Diploma of Kinesiology is a three-year professional course that is accredited by:

The HLT52415 qualifies for Austudy assistance (Centrelink approved)

The nationally recognised Diploma in Kinesiology and the complete Professional Kinesiology Programme™ (PKP), are already recognised and accredited in many countries around the world and by the International College of Professional Kinesiology Practice.

The Basic Kinesiology Programme™ (BKP) is the Kinesiology material used by Kinesiology Schools Australia in the first year of the Diploma. BKP provides students with all the powerful Kinesiology techniques and protocols to give the student a great grounding as a practitioner. The first year workshops begin with the basics, providing the most solid grounding in the field and build to conclude with some powerful intermediate techniques so you can start your career while you complete your Diploma. After the first year you will be able to register as a level 4 Kinesiology practitioner with the AKA or Level 1 with the AIK and start building your practice.

Following the BKP units we move onto EMS201 where students learn effective counselling and emotional trauma ‘defusing’ techniques, as well as gaining personal skills to maintain emotional stability. The second year subjects continue your skills moving into advanced techniques, making sure you have the best opportunity for success as a practitioner. The Brain Integration module helps remove learning blocks and provides some great tools for working with clients. The Nutritional module involves both home studies and face to face workshops as you learn about nutrients, food sensitivities and environmental issues. In the Muscle module we comprehensively move through the various regions of the body, dealing with pain, flexibility and strength. The Joint module deals with joints and flexibility and stress. Finally, the Vibrational module teaches skills in the areas of vibrational energies such as flower essences, gems, chakras and the auric fields.

Throughout the Diploma there is plenty of practical experience gained in class activities during every unit, student clinic, and occasional catch up days.

All this along with the supervision of your experienced teacher fine tunes your skills so you obtain the best possible results with your clients. Our graduates are amongst the best in the field and become highly sought after practitioners.

Student Assessment Journals (SAJ) require the student to record their journey of putting into practice their newly acquired skills. This assists the student to gain valuable experience and confidence whilst obtaining the knowledge required. The journal is also part of the assessment and becomes an enjoyable integrated part of the program.

KSA units are accredited by the Australian Nationally Recognised Training Authority and the industry representative bodies, the Australian Kinesiology Association (AKA) and the Australian Institute of Kinesiologists (AIK), and entitle graduates to register as a professional member.

Many Health Funds require a Diploma in Kinesiology for clients to be able to claim rebate. The services provided by our Kinesiology Schools Australia graduates qualify for these rebates.

Face to face workshops:

Home Studies:

Susan teaching at Kinesiology College Hervey Bay
BKP101 ENERGISERS AND SELF TESTING

The first unit is all about teaching students how to take care of and balance themselves. After all, the practitioner must stay healthy in body and mind to be able to help others. These techniques can also be used to teach clients some basic skills they can use at home to help themselves between consultations. Basic anatomical parts of the body and terminology are also learnt. Setting well worded powerful goals is the basis of a good Kinesiology balance. In this unit you will learn the skills for goal setting that will be used in every balance in the future.

BKP102 MANUAL MUSCLE TESTING

This unit introduces you to the art of muscle testing, which is the basis of Kinesiology. You learn to balance other people, using brain/muscle feedback, known as muscle testing or muscle monitoring, to identify dysfunctions and stress. You also learn how to identify and correct the most common causes of disorganisation in the brain.

BKP103 THE 5 ELEMENTS

An introduction of Chinese philosophies to balance the energy using colour, sound and the emotions is the theme of this unit. This unit teaches techniques to correct and confirm the changes of a 5 Element balance and using food to strengthen muscles, meridians and organs.

AP1 - BASIC ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY

AP1 provides a solid basis of all systems of the body. Students will gain a good understanding of the basic structures and functioning of the body. An in depth review of muscles is included. Students find this unit straight forward and to the point.

KHS 1- KINESIOLOGY HOME STUDY MODULE 1

This unit gathers all the evidence required to meet the unit of Competency: HLTKIN002 Conduct indicator muscle monitoring. It includes the student experiencing being muscle tested by 10 different people as well as keeping a Log of 60 different people you have muscle tested.

SSC - SUPERVISED STUDENT CLINIC AND CLINICAL MENTORING

Supervised Student Clinics are scheduled during each term as well as after they have finished the face to face component of their training. Students are supported as they complete their assessment work and deliver kinesiology to the general public. The experience students gain during this process is invaluable. Having the supervisor on call with support and insight promotes the learning process. Clinical Mentoring refers to the feedback and support students regularly receive as they complete their assessment tasks in their own home or clinic space. At KSA Hervey Bay we look for the most suitable form of mentoring for the student. This can include: individual or group work, face to face, online or skype sessions, email support and the marking of case studies. With completion of all assessments, the student gains confidence and learns to work through real life problems that they will encounter in the workplace.
