Sometimes it is challenging to be available when a course is conducted.  So we have recorded one of our RockTape online interactive courses that was recently conducted via zoom.  Once you purchase the online course, you will be sent a link, and you will have 12 months to watch the content as many times as you like.

The content for this course is the same as our face to face courses.  The recorded video you receive is 5 hours and 35 minutes in length.  However, the number of hours taken to complete the content depends on how much time you spend practicing the applications in the videos practical segments.   We estimate the total time to complete the course could take up to 8 hours, which is the scheduled length of the face to face courses, and that is the amount of time we put on the electronic certificates we send to customers on completion of the course. 

RockTape courses are Australia’s most popular kinesiology tape courses.  Since 2010 we have conducted over 500 full and half day courses, attended by more than 10,000 people.  Why the interest?

Unlike other methods, RockTape’s taping protocol is based on an ‘open-source’ philosophy - we don’t believe there’s only one right way to tape.  This approach to taping integrates concepts from all other methods and provides a framework for the practitioner to determine the best approach for them and their clients using their own clinical reasoning.  By teaching a framework of kinesiology taping - concepts not recipes, it’s much easier for attendees to apply clinically to their customer group – i.e. lower limb, upper limb, paediatric, geriatric, neuro, musculoskeletal, equine, canine, etc.

The full day introduction (level1) courses remain our principal method of introducing the concept of kinesiology taping to the majority of practitioners.  This course provides the basics of kinesiology taping: regional taping for pain, taping for swelling and recovery, taping for posture and useful taping applications for pregnancy.  In addition, this course includes an introduction to the concepts of “Fascial Chain Taping”: utilising the benefits of kinesiology taping to tape the muscles associated with a particular activity.  For example, linking the muscles of the appropriate kinetic chain, i.e. lower back, hamstring and calf muscles that make up the posterior chain.

Course Outline:

  1. Theory of kinesiology taping
  2. Regional taping - muscle and joint applications
  3. Oedema/inflammation taping
  4. Scar taping
  5. Posture taping
  6. Pregnancy taping applications
  7. Introduction to fascial chain taping

Australian based participants receive:

  1. an electronic copy of the presentation slides
  2. enough RockTape to use during the course and also to have some leftover to practice your new skills later
  3. an electronic copy of the certificate on completion can be provided on completion.  

The course materials will be despatched to Australian customers via courier when you place your order.  Please provide a physical delivery address, not a PO Box.

Non Australian based (International) participants receive:

  1. an electronic copy of the presentation slides
  2. an electronic copy of the certificate on completion can be provided on completion. 
  3. please source a couple of rolls of kinesiology tape to use in the course.  The kinesiology tape doesn’t have to be RockTape.  The cost of your course will be 10% less as the GST isn't applicable to you.

    Rocktape Online Recording Course

    Posted by Lara on 17th Mar 2023

    Thoroughly enjoyed this course. I undertook it as I have sons who play sport and am involved in their clubs and wanted to gain some experience in managing issues that may arise. The course was easy to understand, and let me practice practical applications at home. I will definitely be undertaking another course. If you are thinking of doing this one, I highly recommend it

    Made Easy To Learn

    Posted by Chris on 2nd Mar 2023

    All too often, recorded live courses are a bit boring to watch but this one is great. Very easy to follow and the main aims of taping are simply explained followed by live examples of taping certain areas. Demystified a lot for me.

    Posted by Elise on 14th Oct 2022

    Excellent Presentation, received plenty of tape prior to commencing the course, course covered all the basics. Only critic would be that access to the recording is not instant and I waited 5hrs from request to when I had access.
