MAA Good News Announcements for June!!!

 

 

MAA Membership Structure and Fees will change as from 1st July 2014.

This will make it easier for new and existing members to climb the Career Ladder of Membership.

It will be easier to move through from Student Level directly into Accredited Therapeutic Level for those Student Members studying the HLT40312 Certificate IV in Massage Therapy Practice.

It will make it easier to climb the ladder directly from Therapeutic level into Remedial once members have completed the next step on their career journey...successful achievement of the Diploma of Remedial Massage.

Then on up the Career Ladder directly into Myotherapy Level once the Member completes all the requirements of the Myotherapy course.

A new Bachelor Degree level is in the planning for 2015 as more of our Members and Future Members complete their Bachelor Degrees.

MAA has not forgotten their General Member base for all those members who have joined us from various recognised modality schools and colleges and overseas recognised courses as well as members who wish to enter after they have finished their Certificate IV in Massage Therapy Practice or Diploma of Remedial Massage. It is now much easier and attractive to move on up the career ladder for those who wish to do so.

To make career decisions while still studying the Certificate IV in Massage Therapy Practice has become so much more attractive....

MAA would like to announce the successful negotiation with IH Group to be able to provide Student Insurance of $10,000,000 Professional Indemnity (Malpractice) Insurance and $10,000,000 Public Liability Insurance.

How much will it cost? Nothing!!!

Just become a MAA Member while studying your Certificate IV and you will automatically receive your Student Insurance Certificate within a couple of weeks...No application Forms to fill in, no hassles with the Student application. Just great service and benefits as you try out your Professional ethos and with the confidence of knowing you have taken the responsibility to make sure you are 'work ready' for any clinic that would like to employ you even before you finish your study. Try it out and see what a difference it will make....

Students who secure work before the complete their study tend to develop knowledge, skill and confidence at a higher rate than those who wait. Don't wait...get your Student Insurance Free when you join MAA as a Student enrolled in Certificate IV in Massage Therapy Practice.

With all this great news MAA Members are probably wondering "Where is the catch?" Of course there is one!!! Dont' fall of the Career Ladder!!!! It is quite a climb back to the top!!!

Pay your Fees on time. Update your First Aid when it is due. Update your Insurance each year...don't let it lapse.

Keep those client records in the manner of a Professional. Update your Infection Control Policies. Make sure your advertising, fliers and brochures as well as your Website contains ethical evidence-based practice information.

Don't let anyone else use your Provider Numbers if you are a Health Fund Service Provider. Make sure your client knows exactly what you intend to do in your therapy...get them to sign your Informed Consent for Treatment form before you start working with them.

Consult with others and make referrals where necessary to get the best outcome for your client. Keep your CPE plans on track.

And of course, discuss the financials with your clients so they know just how much it will costs them to have you look after their continuing therapy needs.

If you do 'fall off the ladder' of course MAA is there to help you back up. You will have to work hard but it will be worth it. MAA has rectification programmes that can be tailored to your needs...Of course if MAA can't help you then MAA will let you know why.

 

More great news to share with MAA Members!!!

MAA has streamlined and modernised its 1/4 Newsletter. MAA is sure you will like it when it hits your email around 15th of the month of June. Lots of good information just waiting to be read...and more coming later in the year.

MAA will let you know when your very own MAA Branded CPE programme is completed...something for everyone from live workshops, webinars, DVDs, and video footage, all with assessments attached, to help you grow and develop as therapists. All at a very low cost to MAA Members.

Remember to log on to the website to update all your changes such as new email addresses, new phone numbers, any changes of address..it's quick and easy with no hassle. You will have peace of mind knowing you have done it yourself.
