Rationale for the Price Rises

You may have noticed that OML has increased its Course Fees.

When COVID-19 took hold in 2020, OML reduced prices and introduced a range of discounts to maintain a steady flow of new recruits to meet the demand for this safe and effective gift of touch. Over this remarkable and challenging 30 months, this has meant that we have still been able to welcome more than 275 students across Australia and New Zealand through our various Courses.

Unfortunately, our decision to reduce Course Fees was not matched by many of the organisations providing us with products and services - and the recent surge in inflation has not been of much help either:

  • Before COVID-19, OML paid up to $150 per day for venue hire - we are now paying $250 to $450 per day - just recently, we were quoted $600 per day for a reasonable venue in Melbourne's West

  • Before COVID-19, OML paid $100 to $125 per person per night for accommodation for our travelling Course Facilitators - now we are regularly paying at least $150 per person per night.

  • Before COVID, airfares were within reasonable costs... however, airfares have greatly increased, and flight terms and conditions have changed  - this has been matched by the increased cost of insurance and compliance.

However, it would be disingenuous to put all of the blame on external changes. COVID has also encouraged OML to corporately and personally embrace change that did not come without financial investment:

  • Our Course Facilitators were generally ineligible for the COVID Assistance Packages available to many in the health care sector - in response, OML introduced some initiatives to help them stay afloat.

  • Some of our Course Facilitators have been occupied elsewhere, and some have chosen to pursue other options. This has meant that our active Course Facilitators have travelled more often and more widely than expected with all of the costs that entails

  • Due in no small part to the above point, OML has inducted 6 new Facilitators-In-Training and Course Tutors to ease the burden on our remaining qualified Course Facilitators - more trainees on Courses means more travel costs; and

  • OML has also started to explore improvement options including the development of online training capability and new programs, and the update of existing programs.

Thanking you in anticipation of your understanding and ongoing support.
