"Become a Qualfied Hairdresser"

This is the only Certificate which recognises you as a fully qualified hairdresser and is the most widely held hairdressing qualification in Australia. You will learn to cut the latest men’s and ladies’ styles to which you will be able to add colour shading and lightening techniques, plus perming and straightening. The training is “hands on”, practising with clients in the Academy’s salon, allowing you to study the theory at home. It’s nothing like school. This is exciting news for young and mature age students who hate the idea of “going to school”. Many of our students study hairdressing and beauty together to maximise their work opportunities.

If you wish to go onto further study this Certificate gives you credit for 5 of the 19 units of work required to complete Certificate IV in Beauty Therapy. Certificate III in Hairdressing is also a pre-requisite to the study of Certificate IV in Hairdressing.

Our Graduates

Many of the Academy’s graduates prefer to own their own salons and, as  they have gained great salon experience and confidence throughout their training, purchase or open their own salons immediately upon graduating.  It is the desire of most of our graduates to eventually become self-employed. The Academy’s training, which promotes independence very early in the course, provides the best possible foundation to achieve their career goal.
