Only basic numeracy and literacy skills are needed to attend this course. Some basic anatomy and physiology is an advantage when completing this course.

Practising of taping to ankles, thumbs, knees, elbows and fingers will be done during the course. It is generally expected that participants will allow others to tape them - areas that will be taped include thumb, fingers and ankles. It is suggested that lower legs / ankles are shaved prior to attending this course in preparation to having tape applied.

Practising of taping to shoulder area will also be conducted. This will generally involve participants practising this skill on other participants and obviously having upper chest partially exposed. It is suggested that a singlet type top be worn to enable this area to be taped.
