Our distance learning program is particularly suitable for those students living in country areas or need the flexibility of studying remotely rather than attending college.
Beauty Specialist Diploma
The course is studied over 6 months – 12 months a combination of:
• Assessments on theory after each module
• 1day practical workshops 5 times roughly every 2 months at Revival Aesthetic and Beauty Academy
• 100 hours practicing on family and friends (video evidence to be submitted to trainer for assessment purposes.)
• Self-paced study and research.
You will receive your modules and assignments via email or by courier. Once your assessor have marked them you will receive your next module and assignment.
You will receive personal attention and one on one support from your Trainer who will guide you through all aspects of the course and be in constant contact.
You attend the 1day workshops that are held at the end of February, April, June, August, October which is where you learn the practical aspects of the course.
At each workshop you will practice what you have learnt in each module where you will gain the practical skills you need to become a successful and highly regarded Beauty Specialist.
Please note most practical units require you to be assessed 4-6 times by our qualified assessors. At least 2 of these will be done in person but if you are unable to come for all assessments due to distance, you must video the other treatments on average 4 times and forward to your assessor for marking and comment. On enrolment we will provide you with a variety of options for practical assessments including coming into Academy on a regular basis and videoing submission.
You will also be given kits for most practical units.
ARE MY QUALIFICATIONS THE SAME AS COMING TO FULL TIME STUDY?
You will have your final practical assessments with our college assessors and will graduate with the same qualifications as our full time students. Average timeframe to complete the course by distance learning is 12 months – 18 months according to individual needs.
Once you have passed all your assessments you may enrol for the International Exams which will be in July or November.
