Do I need to have a health & beauty background to attend training

Although a health & beauty background is preferred, it is not essential to be accepted onto one of our courses. We also consider students with art, creative and medical backgrounds. We do look at other factors such as your experience.

Do you offer finance?

Yes we do. As one of the AU's longest standing SPMU course providers; we offer finance packages via an industry leading finance provider. Safe and secure; finance eligibility is processed quickly. Please contact us. https://www.dermaplanepro.com.au/form/contact-us/

What is the course duration?

Our main SPMU courses are between 3-5 days in length. You would receive pre-study material before the commencement of the course. One day of each course is dedicated to theory and the rest is practical training. At the end of the course you will be fully assessed with a practical and written exam. We hold training courses at weekends as well as week days to cater for all of our clients’ needs.

Prior to the 3 - 5 day course you will spend 5 weeks (136 hours) Distance study with 1 hour of one-on-one phone support per week with the Trainer/Assessor, plus 1/2 day (4 hours) of face-to-face training and assessment for infection control.  

Will I need insurance?

Not to train with DPAU (you are covered by our insurance) - once you begin working; yes. Our courses are accredited by industry leaders ITEC and so you will be able to obtain insurance, as soon as you complete our course. You will also contact your local council to acquire a special treatments licence (a simple process and we aid in this).

How soon after I have graduated can I start to work?

Straight away, the benefits of training with DPAU are, the on-going technical support, access to business marketing literature, discount from future training courses and product supplies.

Where is the training venue?

We are based in Canberra. We are close to Canberra International Airport and many taxi's/Uber links.

I need to refresh or update on my previously training. Can you help?

Yes we can help. You may feel you need to update your techniques, build on your confidence but don’t want to attend a beginners course, so we hold refresher specialised workshops to suit an individual’s needs. In these workshops we specialise in key areas, such as Eyebrows or Lips. You may just want to perfect or update your technique with one of our experienced trainers. The SPMU industry is constantly developing and our tutors are constantly updating their knowledge to provide the latest methods and techniques in SPMU. Whatever your needs; we can definitely meet your requirements. We have the maximum of three students per course (one to one attention) to provide the highest learning experience and in some cases, we also offer one-to-one training.

What is the payment procedure?

Upon acceptance into the DPAU University you will need to submit a deposit payment of $1500.00 (non-refundable). This deposit payment secures your place on a course and is paid simply by a secure pay link that we email to you. The remaining balance of the course fees is payable and should have cleared funds two weeks prior to course commencement.

Once we have received your deposit, an invoice will be sent to you as receipt and proof of payment. Any pre-study course material will also be sent before the commencement of your course.

We realise some of our courses can be quite costly investments and in some cases we may be able to offer a payment plan whereby an agreement with yourself and DPAU University would be arranged. Monthly payments would be made to pay the total outstanding balance of your course by the due date.

DPAU University is a registered learning provider and is listed on the UK Register of Learning Providers. No: 216022. You could try to contact your local Careers Advice centre to ask for local and national funding options.

Do we offer RPL?

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is available and all students are offered the opportunity to participate in RPL upon enrolment. Recognition of Prior Learning is generally recommended where individuals have been working in a relevant job role for at least 2 years; however, any student can also self-elect to undertake RPL.

The RPL model used by DPAU is a guided and supported process that relies on the candidate’s ability to demonstrate their competence by answering verbal questions from an assessor, providing referees and, where possible, having their practical skills assessed in the workplace.

Unlike other RPL models, written evidence is used to back up and support RPL assessment, rather than being based entirely on it. The RPL process will include a number of discussions and observations between the candidate and the assessor, which provides the candidate with an opportunity to demonstrate level of skill and knowledge.

Assessment will be conducted individually and students will be provided with a Student Assessment Booklet for each unit

of competency which includes:

  • A full description of all assessment tasks for the unit of competency
  • Assessment instructions for each unit of competency
  • Assessment resources for each unit of competency
