Bachelor of Health Sciences - Clinical Myotherapy is a 4 year university course, through Southern School of Natural therapies, Which is government accredited - or I wouldn't be getting fee help... The course is going to be rolled out aus wide through Think Education.
The Adv. Dip Myo course you've mentioned, are both tafe courses run through universities.
We have a few people in our course who have done the tafe course Adv. Dip of Remedial Massage (Myotherapy) at RMIT, who are currently re-training as they feel their depth of knowledge, particularly their musculoskeletal knowledge isn't thorough enough, and are at uni expanding and learning to treat more effectively.

If you are truely concerned about who is dry needling you, I'll try put this into perspective - a Physio does a 2 day weekend course in it, a Adv.Dip myo I understand does 6 months of it (as I understand the course structure is 2 years remedial massage, then myotherapy for 6months?) and a Clinical Myotherapist does 2 years in dry needling, 6 month of it is Pain/Dry needling theory, plus 2 semester of Musculoskeltal Structure,Cad Anat, and Surface Anatomy (Just like a physio) as well as a multitude of other subjects like pain management, treatment, diagnosis, and prescriptive exercises, at a university level.
