Bowen Training Australia – BTA
Bowen Training Australia is an incorporated association whose members comprise all currently registered Bowtech Instructors in Australia. With over thirty Instructors spread around Australia, classes are offered in a variety of areas and at times and intervals to suit a student’s or practitioner’s need.
BTA Instructors are the only Bowen Instructors licensed by Bowtech / Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia to provide Bowen – ‘the Original Bowen Technique’ training.
Within the association Bowen Training Australia, various sub committees have been formed to harness individual Instructors skills for the benefit of the whole and take Bowenwork and Bowen education into an exciting future. With an education and training committee to develop further teaching resources and oversee the development of new courses/workshops, and a research committee to archive research material and provide access to new developments via the Blog facility on this website, it is an exciting opportunity for all students and practitioners who are associated with us.
BTA Instructors are dedicated to delivering a quality teaching experience …………………………………………………………………….
Your BTA Instructor
All BTA/Bowtech Instructors have completed an extensive training programme prior to becoming an Instructor. The BTA/Bowtech Instructor Training Programme takes the Instructor through a series of stages from Certificate IV Instructor to Diploma Instructor. It is also a requirement that Instructors have had a minimum of three years experience in clinical practice.
BTA Instructors are also required to continually upgrade their teaching qualifications, currently the TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment
A continuing education process specifically for Instructors is also provided to ensure a professional standard of teaching is maintained and that all Instructors are kept abreast of latest developments. Attendance at regular Instructor Meetings is compulsory.
BTA Instructors are encouraged to continually explore the ever developing knowledge in the bodywork and ‘soft tissue’ arena and develop workshops or incorporate the new knowledge into the various courses they present.
