On completion of the first year, learners must be able to perform a full range of skincare therapies - apply make-up
2ND YEAR - BODY THERAPY
The second year diploma is an extension and development of the one year program. This forms a natural progression where the learners will be exposed to dealing with the therapeutic requirements of clients that need more complex therapies.
Practical clinic experience is an important aspect which the learners gains during this year. This will in turn create more job opportunities and enhance their entrepreneurial skills.
3RD YEAR - SPA THERAPY
This is a specialized year. The learners have the opportunity to complete subjects on an advanced level that will be seen as individual qualifications and not integrated into the 1st or 2nd year qualifications. Staying on top of the current progression250 in the health and skincare industry we align the program to address this need.
It will prove to be of great value to learners wanting to enter
