There are three different levels of qualification for AMT members:
- General Level Membership
- Senior Level One
- Senior Level Two
National Competency Standards were introduced for Massage Therapy training in 2002. AMT's three levels of membership equate to the standards outlined in the Australian Qualifications Framework.
Graduates of Certificate IV programs are admitted to AMT at General Level and are competent to perform general health maintenance treatments.
Graduates of Diploma programs are admitted to AMT at Senior Level One and are competent to perform treatments involving specific remedial techniques to alleviate common musculo-skeletal presentations such as low back pain.
Graduates of Advanced Diploma programs are admitted to AMT at Senior Level Two and are qualified to treat complex musculoskeletal presentations with a more extensive range of treatment protocols.
