Dermabrasion is a safe, controlled system of intense exfoliation and resurfacing that rejuvenates the skin. It works as a gentle abrasive on the skin to remove dead skin cells layer by layer. The treatment is progressive meaning clients will continue to see results over the course of treatment.

Anyone can benefit from this treatment. It improves the overall appearance of the skin giving skin a healthy glow and youthful appearance. Microdermabrasion is also extremely effective at treating a number of skin problems. It can be used on the face and body making it a good treatment for acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles.

Once you book your place you will receive a booking confirmation containing your online account details so you can start the course straight away. This will enable you to start learning the theory at your own pace, and prepare you for the practical day at the University.  We have a high success rate for students, so rest assured that we will provide you with all the support you need to pass your diploma.

Our course is accredited by ITEC making it an insurable certificate which allows you to use this treatment on the general public and charge for this therapy.

Where does the training take place?

Training for all courses takes place at our Beauty Schools based in either:

QLD - Gold Coast; NSW - Sydney; ACT - Canberra; VIC - Melbourne and WA - Perth.

Students will receive maps of the area including parking areas.


We provide students with access to our online training area before they attend the school. We find by doing this they are able to complete the theory in their own time and are able to absorb more information. This also means we have more time for practical, which then allows the tutor to demonstrate best practices as well as answer any  Q & A’s.

Can I upgrade my certificate at a later date?

Yes, you’ll have the option to do this. You’ll have to pay the additional fee (see above) for the upgrade, and we’ll then provide you with all the additional material for your NVQ qualification. We’ll then schedule your assessment day at the school. 

Can I get insurance with my Diploma certificate?

Most insurance companies will insure you with an ITEC Diploma or certificate.  

What if I cancel my course, will I get a refund?

It will depend on the circumstances surrounding the cancellation and the notice given(see T&C for more details). In the instance that a refund is requested due to illness, medical notification will be required. Unfortunately, we are unable to give a refund if the online theory has been accessed/completed.

Will I be required to do any home study?

Yes. As well as doing the online theory at your own pace, students will find that by practising at home AFTER you have taken the course, performing approximately 6 -8 treatments, they will achieve more confidence in doing treatments. Free refreshers are offered up to 6 month after course date if you feel you need more training. 

How many students are there in a class?

We believe in keeping the class sizes small, so students have more one 2 one time with our tutors. Our normal class size is 4 to 8.

Will I need to bring a model?

Please see below for any course-specific requirements regarding models as some courses DO REQUIRE models.

In most cases, no models are required; students will work on each other for the practical element. However, if you feel more comfortable bringing your own model for the beauty course just let us know in advance via email. Failure to inform us that you are bringing a model could result in your course being cancelled without refund. If the course has an uneven number of students, you may be asked to bring your own model however you will be contacted by admin to discuss this. 

Whilst every care is taken when delivering courses to prevent any issues when students are practising treatments however, you must be aware that this is training and that you accept that there may be risk associated with receiving treatments from a student.

Will I need to bring anything?

No, everything will be provided for you on the course. However, some students find it beneficial to bring a pen and paper to make notes.

Is the Course accredited?

Our courses are approved and accredited by ITEC.   

When will I get my certificate?

After completion of all the components including ITEC International Exam.

Do you offer finance on your courses?
