Many people trained in beauty therapy a long time ago and have qualifications that are now not recognised. You can apply to upgrade your old qualification to the latest SHB50115 Diploma of Beauty Therapy or upgrade a certificate VI to SHB50115 Diploma of Beauty Therapy
You can apply for RPL for units you have experience in but may not have a formal qualification for. Your old qualifications will be mapped to the new qualification, and you may need to complete some units to reach the new standard.
Refer to units under Diploma section.
Cost is $7,500 for the upgrade unit. VET Student Loans is available to qualifying students.
As a general guide therapists with a Diploma may need to complete or prove RPL. Those with a Certificate IV would normally need to complete the following units:
|SHBBBOS004||Provide aromatherapy massages|
|SHBBCCS002||Prepare personalised aromatic plant oil blends for beauty treatments|
|SHBBSPA001||Work in a spa therapies framework|
|SHBBSPA002||Provide spa therapies|
|SHBBSPA003||Provide stone therapy massages|
|SHBBSPA004||Provide Indian head massages for relaxation|
|SHBBHRS002||Provide female intimate waxing services|
|SHBBINF001||Maintain infection control standards|
|SHBBMUP003||Design and apply make-up for photography|
|SHBBMUP004||Design and apply remedial camouflage make-up|
|SHBBSKS005||Provide micro-dermabrasion treatments|
|SHBBBOS001||Apply cosmetic tanning products|
If you have a SHB40115 Certificate IV in Beauty Therapy, you may find the better jobs are offered to girls with the Diploma. This will also enable you to enter the Bachelor of Dermal Sciences program at Victorian University.
You can upgrade your Certificate IV by completing an additional 8 units, (normally from the list above) which can be done by a combination of distance learning and short practical workshops. Cost $7,500.
