Study methods for Cert III


All units have both a practical and theory component to them. You will need to complete both the theory assessment and all practical assessments to be competent. You will be assessed in the practical activities more than once.



You are expected to complete theory homework and further reading at home in your own time, to ensure the course timeline is kept. You may also like to practice your new practical skills on friends and family!


Salon days

In order to complete the practical assessments we will have salon days. Family and friends are welcome to come and have services done for you to complete assessments. These days will run as if you are in a real workplace.

We are currently in the middle of renovating our new beauty classroom with:

Fresh paint and new flooring & All brand new equipment

We can’t wait to welcome students to their beautiful new space.
