JOINING AS A level 3 therapist

We recognise that not everyone is ready to go straight to Level 4 (or above) immediately after completing Level 3. Our LEVEL 3 THERAPIST membership aims to recognise that the first step on the road to full qualification as a Sports Massage Therapist has already been taken and that the commitment to take the next step will come in due course.

  • Level 3 Therapists will have completed a Level 3 in Sports Massage Therapy from an Awarding Organisation (VTCT, ITEC, Active IQ, YMCA) accredited by the QCF/RQF national framework for qualifications that meets the SMA's minimum standards for delivery - please read our stance on intensive courses for more information about this.
NB: The only qualification awarded by Focus Awards that we accept for SMA membership has the QAN 610/2324/3.  All other qualifications from this awarding organisation remain ineligible for SMA membership.
  • Level 3 Therapists further commit to completing a Level 4 (or higher) qualification within 2 years of membership being approved in this category in order to then be able to apply for Full membership.
If you are already registered on a Level 4/5 course and will complete it within the next 12 months then we recommend joining as a Student member

**The Level 3 Therapist membership costs £50 for two years, payable fully in advance. You can also add a two-year subscription to Co-Kinetic for an extra £50.
