Diploma of Beauty Therapy (SHB50115)
Make people look good and feel better
If you enjoy helping others to make themselves look and feel their best, this is the qualification for you. There are two methods of studying our beauty therapy courses: either on campus or through blended learning. Either way, the practical classes are delivered in a simulated beauty salon environment.
Beauty Therapy course Face to Face on-campus learning option
You will be taught skills to provide a wide range of treatments for the face and body including facials, beauty makeovers, manicures, pedicures, spray tanning, lash and brow treatments, selling retail skin care, and hair removal. You will also be taught how to run a successful salon and how to order products and manage staff. The course also explores the science behind the beauty treatments and why therapies are so successful. All your practical experience will be undertaken on campus. Duration: 12 months.
Beauty Therapy course Blended learning option
With the Diploma of Beauty Therapy (SHB50115) blended learning option, the theory will be learned online and the workshop training will give you practical experience. You will be expected to attend four days’ training each month in either Perth, Sydney or Brisbane. With our beauty course online you will learn similar skills to those students studying on campus. See below for the course content.
What are your career options?
Both beauty courses pave the way for some career exciting paths. There are always plenty of jobs for qualified beauty therapists, whether you plan to set up in your own business or join an established salon. Career opportunities include working in a salon, beauty clinic, hospital, health spa or within a beauty studio on a cruise ship.
Student entry requirements
TrainSmart Australia will assess a student’s ‘academic suitability’ to ensure the student has the best chance of success. This is determined by either:
- The student providing TrainSmart Australia with a copy of an Australian year 12 certificate; or,
- The student providing TrainSmart Australia with a copy of a Certificate IV qualification (or above) or,
- The student completing the Core Skills Profile for Adults online assessment passing at or above Exit Level 3 in the Australian Core Skills Framework in both reading and numeracy.
In addition to the above entry requirements, the College will consider whether the student applying to enrol demonstrates the capacity to meet the demands of their chosen course. Student academic suitability is determined through a one to one career counselling session. The student will be advised whether he or she is considered to be academically suited, or alternative study pathways may be offered.
