Enter the beauty industry under expert mentors

If you enjoy working with people and want to build an exciting career in the beauty services industry, this course is for you.

When you complete the Certificate III in Beauty Services, you will gain the confidence to work with customers in a beauty salon or retail environment.
You will learn practical skills in areas such as:

• make-up
• waxing
• manicures and pedicures
• lash and brow treatments
• eyelash extensions
• cosmetic tanning
• demonstration and sales of retail skin care and other cosmetic products
• effective communication skills used in the retail environment.

Some coursework will be conducted online and will require access to a computer or device with Windows 365 or Microsoft office and reliable internet.

All students practice on real paying clients in our commercial salon and graduate with the self-confidence and skills to interact and engage with proficiency. You will be job ready to perform and demonstrate the professional skills required for the industry.
This is a practical qualification with a lot of hands-on assessment and mandatory hours that students must complete to pass all units so attendance is important to ensure successful completion of this qualification. All skills assessments will be required to be carried out on paying members of the public.

Four days per week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday on campus and Friday online) 9am - 3pm

Please note that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing requirements, to continue your learning journey, this program will be delivered remotely where possible.

Participants will be required to engage with learning material online and via video conferencing software rather than attend classes. Refer to our COVID-19 Online Service Standards for details of minimum technical requirements and support available. While it is expected that the course duration will remain unchanged, it may be necessary to extend the completion date if circumstances change. Chisholm will be monitoring the situation closely and inform of any changes if the duration of a course is extended.
