Upgrade your qualifications

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 SHB50121 Diploma of Beauty Therapy or upgrade a certificate VI to SHB50121 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 $10,000.00 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.

Please refer to the previous list and advise us which units you will require that you do not currently hold. There are normally 8 units that need to be completed.

Upgrade from SHB40115 Certificate IV in Beauty Therapy to SHB50121 Diploma of Beauty Therapy

Diploma students normally have a wider range of job opportunities. This will also enable you to enter the Bachelor of Dermal Sciences program at Victorian University.

You can upgrade your certificate IV by completing the required units from the list above which can be done by a combination of distance learning and short practical workshops. Cost $10,000.
