‘Can I really learn all I need to in the time frame give?’
We keep existing therapists and beginners in separate classes, so for therapists everybody on the course will have pre-existing knowledge and for beginners we issue pre study and allow extra time in the classroom.
In our therapists classes some students may have initially studied some time ago, so we provide study aids and assistance to revise the Health and Safety, Procedures and Anatomy and Physiology which isn’t brand new information to you. We feel, as this is a refresher rather than new information, that we shouldn’t be spending excess time in the classroom re-capping this. Instead we aim for maximum practical experience within our lessons, along with essential new theory. Our tutors never turn their back on you after the course and are available to provide extra information and guidance should you require it as home study
For beginners, you have a mentor for before, during and after the course to ask questions should you need to. The class sizes are very small to ensure lots of individual assessment and we work at a pace to ensure everything is clear before your assessment.
‘I’m still worried there will be too much to learn’
We are confident that you will pick up the procedures and routines but if we feel you have not passed at a competent level with safety in mind, we will not issue your certificate. Instead, we will add additional training aids and extra activities and case studies to complete at home. We will ensure you are confident before you start treating clients. If you request it, we also offer additional one to one sessions for an additional fee, but we are confident the initial course will arm you with enough knowledge and skill to confidently offer the treatment you are training in. .
‘How big are the classes?’
We offer a maximum of six students per course and aim to keep the groups smaller wherever possible. The six students are usually reserved for when we provide training privately for a single business. Should the course not be filled, it would still go ahead providing you are able to bring a model with you on the day. Your tutor will discuss this with you in plenty of time before the course begins.
‘What is included in the course price?’
The course price is the only price you will pay, there are no hidden fees. The price includes your training manuals, learning material, revision manuals (where required), certificate and the use of all training materials on the day including beds/chairs, towels, consumables and the equipment and products required on the day. You will be advised on where to purchase your own kit to use at home but this will not be required prior to the course.
‘Once I’ve completed a course with you can I treat clients?’
Once the course is completed and the certificate has been issued, you will be fully qualified and able to gain insurance using our accredited certificates with all major insurance companies. Some courses require case studies and practice at home before your certificate is issued and this time is known as the apprentice period. You are considered qualified from the point your certificate is issued.
‘What does being Accredited actually mean?’
Being accredited as an academy means we have been vetted by Professional Beauty Direct awarding body (and previously by other awarding bodies too). They ensure our Health and Safety, Code of Conduct, Anatomy and Physiology as well as the individual treatment subjects and procedures, are all complying with their standards and are being delivered to you correctly. It means when you receive a certificate from us that is accredited by them, you can be confident you have received the best quality training course and have the skills required to perform the treatment as a chargeable service.
‘How do I obtain Insurance?’
Before carrying out the treatment on clients you will need to purchase insurance for professional indemnity and public liability. We recommend Professional Beauty Direct because as a company we use them ourselves (as therapists, as a beauty salon and as a training academy) and they are also our accreditors for all of our courses.
