Stage 1 - Certificate IV in Kinesiology (HLT42807)
Weekend course: starts 24/25 August (one w/end per month)
Mid week course (Wednesday) starts 4 September
Enrolments are taken now and close 10 August. Please note that our courses fill up very quickly and we recommend early expression of interest to secure your place in the course. Please arrange a suitable time for your orientation interview before enrolment.
The Certificate IV in Kinesiology is internationally accredited in over 40 affiliated colleges in more than 16 countries worldwide and is the foundation for the Diploma of Professional Kinesiology.
This professional kinesiology training program was developed by Dr. Bruce Dewe and his wife Joan Dewe over 26 years ago.
Upon completion the graduate is fully qualified to practice as a Registered Kinesiologist and eligible to become a Professional Member of the Australian Kinesiology Association (AKA) and the Australian Institute of Kinesiologists (AIK).
CERTIFICATE IV in Kinesiology training is taught over 10 modules (20 days face to face tuition)and supervised student clinic. This stage is the foundation training for the Diploma of Kinesiology training (HLT51507).
Each diploma unit consists of 15 hours class time and 15 hours of home study and practice
First Year Units
BKP 101: Energisers and Self Testing
Defines Kinesiology and anatomical parts of the body. Develops basic self-care skills using meridian trace, energy reflex points, body testing, walking gaits, simple emotional stress release, emotional trigger words, cross-crawl, auricular energy and visual inhibition techniques, goals and 'time of day' balance for self care.
BKP 102: Manual Muscle Testing
Accurate muscle testing, evaluation procedures, facilitation/inhibition, dehydration, ionisation, neurological disorganization, central vessel integrity and thymus energy, origin/insertion, spindle/golgi techniques, bones of the skeleton and energy balance for others.
BKP 103: 5 Element Introduction - Yin Balance
Sound, colour, food, emotional and vertebral balancing techniques, circuit-locating, the challenge, the 5-Element 8 muscle energy balance, priority mode.
BKP 104: Kinesiology and Superficial Connections
Understanding of meridians and their elated organ systems, 14 muscle goal balance, surrogates, More and Priority Modes, body movements in anatomical terms, create a simple record of a client balance.
BKP 105: 5 Elements - in depth
5-Element principles in depth, 5-Element emotions, alarm points, Luo points, acupressure holding points, alternative indicator muscle tests, surface anatomy and recognize the muscles' action in sport and exercise, yin/yang principles to perform a 5-Element one-point goal balance.
BKP 106: Professional Skills - Balancing Protocol with PKP Database
Effective listening skills to establish client rapport, use finger modes, Professional Kinesiology Practitioners' database, simplified PKP protocol, age recession.
BKP 107: Pain Reduction
Evaluate pain levels, use emotional and postural stress release, meridian flow adjustment, muscle energy techniques, cross crawl exercise, figure-8s, marine spiral energy and food or supplements to reduce physical pain.
BKP 108: History / Balancing with Food
Development, philosophy and principles of Kinesiology. Chain of life, six stages of nutrition, food combining, biogenic, biostatic, biocidic substances, construct diets using 5-Element, food family and food rotation principles, acu-point sensitivity test.
BKP 109: Advanced Muscle Techniques, Reactivity and Posture
Muscle facilitation and inhibition, muscle and meridian reactivity, posture, muscle stretch response, sustained muscle use, hidden muscle failure, specific circuit and contralateral spindle techniques.
BKP 110: Client Health Records and Professional Relationships
Establish, utilize and update a client health record. Set clear boundaries and communicate with both individuals and groups in a professional manner: apply client history to establish desired outcomes, maintain client rapport, facilitate client towards self-responsibility model, keep clinical records, client referrals.
On completion of BKP 101 - 110 units as well as Anatomy & Physiology (A & P 201), Clinical Safety, Business Administration and the Senior First Aid Certificate the graduate is qualified to practice as a registered Kinesiologist (RKP).
5 personal kinesiology sessions need to be completed at an approved ICPKP Diploma graduate at a reduced student rate. These sessions are an important part of your ongoing personal development and are not included in the course fee.
Student Clinic: @ $ 30 -Certificate IV students - $55 - Diploma students (fully qualified/registered practitoners)
