Women's Health Training - Intermediate
Women's Pelvic Health
The current WHTA Women's Pelvic Health Level 2 Training Program is provided in partnership with the Australian Physiotherapy Association. Whilst all of the content was written and produced by WHTA, it is administratively run and endorsed by the Australian Physiotherapy Association, re-assuring you that your level 2 training is formally recognised by Australia's national physiotherapy membership association.
The Level 2 training program consists of 18hours pre-recorded online lectures that provides all the theoretical knowledge required for level 2, followed by a 2.5 day Face-to-Face practical skills course that teaches internal vaginal and rectal examinations.
The Level 2 online theory lectures (but not the face-to-face) are pre-requisite for many of WHTA's Advanced Level 3 Courses. Overseas physiotherapists can therefore complete the online lectures without completing the Face-to-Face and still be eligible to enroll in Level 3 courses.

Course Fee & WHTA Member Cashback Benefit
note: the course fee for the Women's Pelvic Health Level 2 - Part A is
set and collected by the Australian Physiotherapy Association
However, WHTA offers a partial rebate on WPHL2 - Part A as a service for WHTA Members.
For Australian Physiotherapists the rebate increases depending on
the number of other WHTA Courses that have been completed
All overseas WHTA Members will automatically receive a minimum 40% rebate as it is not expected that overseas physiotherapists would be APA members and are therefore charged a higher base course fee.
LEVEL 2 PELVIC HEALTH: FACE-TO-FACE
The Level 2 Pelvic Health Face-to-Face course consists of
5 x 4 hours sessions requiring a total of 2.5 days attendance
