Mandatory modules - In all our courses the students must take three mandatory modules:

 

  1. Basic anatomy and physiology:  Before touching a client’s skin, nails or hair, students must learn human anatomy and physiology, diseases and disorders of hair, skin, and nails and contraindications to beauty treatments.

  2. Safety, hygiene and ethics: Sanitisation and sterilisation has always been a key component of any beauty salon.  Now more so in the covid19 era.  We also train our therapists the importance of maintaining high ethical standards in the provision of beauty treatments.

  3. The business of beauty:  The motto of the beauty academy is “enter to learn, leave to earn”.  Our goal is to produce beauty entrepreneurs with a global mindset who can contribute to the economy, provide excellent service to their clients, become employers and create new product lines.

We offer the following courses which can be taken individually as certificate courses or altogether as a diploma course:
