ITEC Diploma in Advanced Skincare - Fast Track

Level 4
QAN 500/9735/0Q

The course is a refresher for accredited estheticians who have been away from the skin care profession for a while and / or who require an update and international recognition & approval.  Some estheticians may have achieved several diplomas however still require international approval. The course provides skincare education and the understanding of new procedures, treatment methods and the latest technology.

The skin care profession has undergone major changes in the last ten years. Estheticians who have taken their education in the nineties or earlier, and those who have been away from the profession for a time, are today facing new treatment techniques and technologies.

The Fast Track Skincare Refresher Diploma ITEC course is a compressed program where essential and current theoretical and technological knowledge / practical procedures are thoroughly reviewed. Prior to the three intensive practice weeks in school  the student must undergo and pass the theory via our e-learning program.
