Latest COVID-19 News

Status

OML has cautiously resumed Oncology Massage Training in New South Wales, and is about to start delivering Courses again in Queensland, South Australia and New Zealand. We have implemented new COVIDSafe Protocols to protect the health and wellbeing of our Course Facilitators, Students, and Venue Partners. This involves:

  • Temperature testing at the start and end of every day
  • The wearing of masks
  • The liberal use of sanitisers, disinfectant wipes, soaps and tissues; and
  • Physical distancing.

These protocols have already given a VERY responsible OM1 student the impetus to withdraw from an OM1 Course on Day 1 for which we are extremely garteful. Thanks John!
 

Courses

At the Marymount Mercy Centre in Castle Hill New South Wales, Amy Tyler has successfully facilitated an OM1 and an OM2 at the Marymount Mercy Centre. At our new venue in Tarlo near Goulburn, also in New South Wales, Tania Griffin and Lizzie Milligan have completed a spectacular OM1. Special thanks to Tarlo host Jules!

At the New Zealand College of Massage in Christchurch New Zealand, Tess O'Toole has scheduled an OM1 to begin in mid-Nov/2020. Registrations are needed ASAP.

At the CWA Hall in Mermaid Beach Queensland, Tania Griffin and Katie Damic are running an OM1 to begin at the end of Oct/2020. Tania is also running a 1-day Mini Tutorial Refresher for OM2 Graduates while she is in the area. Both Courses have been conditionally confirmed subject to COVID-19. There must be something in the water in Far North Queensland as we have had two Therapists offer to organise Courses in 2021 in Townsville and Cairns. Thanks Cherie & Liz! (PS: Toowoomba is also looking good for an OM1 in 2021)

At the Movement & Wellbeing Centre in Hove in South Australia, Anne-Marie Halligan has scheduled an OM1 to start in mid-Nov/2020 and a Mini Tutorial - All Things Head & Neck a few days later. Both Courses have been conditionally confirmed subject to COVID-19.

At the Bell Motel in Preston in Victoria, Anne-Marie has also optimistically scheduled an OM2 for late Nov/2020. Fingers crossed!

On18/May/2020, we cancelled all Courses in Australia starting before 1/Aug/2020, and all Courses in New Zealand starting before 1/Oct/2020. As of 23/Jul/2020, we advise that we are making tentative steps to offer face-to-face Courses:

  • In New South Wales, we are starting on 15/Aug/2020 with experienced Sydney-based Course Facilitator Amy Tyler delivering a one-day Mini Tutorial - All Things Head & Neck at the Marymount Mercy Centre
  • In New Zealand, Christchurch-based Course Facilitator Tess O'Toole is planning an OM1 for later in the Calendar Year 2020 
  • In Queensland, we have Courses scheduled to start in September - this may be difficult to achieve if border restrictions increase as we currently have no QLD-based Course Facilitators
  • IN South Australia, we have Courses scheduled to start in October - experienced Adelaide-based Course Facilitator Anne-Marie Halligan is also planning an OM1 for later in the Calendar Year 2020
  • In Victoria, we have Courses scheduled to start in Sep/2020 - but they are NOT looking promising at the moment.

The self-paced Online Oncology Massage Theory courses for endota Spa/Clinic staff & endota Wellness College students commenced on Monday 13/Jul/2020 and it is proving very popular largely due to the efforts of experienced Sydney-based Course Facilitators Lizzie Milligan and Tania Griffin.

The COVID-19 situation seems to be improving across the country - except in Victoria. There are no course cancellations to report and we have scheduled 4 new courses at the Marymount Mercy Centre in Castle Hill New South Wales starting in Aug/2020. Check out the 2020 Course Schedule here. Stay tuned for announcements about the proposed training courses in Victoria, and new or reaffirmed courses in South Australia, Queensland, and New Zealand.

The Online Oncology Massage Theory courses for endota Spa/Clinic staff & endota Wellness College students only have been very popular. The self-paced Course will commence in the next few weeks.
