The Cidesco, Btec and NVQ3 accreditation in beauty therapy prepares beauty therapists to be functional in a beauty environment providing a range of low revenue treatments. The three qualifications provides little specialist training in any particular treatment. The NVQ3, Btec and Cidesco qualification does not include essential skills such as: sale training, management training, consulting training, and customer service training, leaving graduates to flounder in the job market. Graduates with the Btec, Cidesco and NVQ3 qualification require a lot of development by salon owners to become proficient in the work environment and to progress in their careers. Unfortunately this does not happen and the therapist is left skill-less moving from one job to another without developing as a true therapist.
The IAMA program is a post graduate program developing Beauty Therapist to become clinical skin specialists. Skin Specialists have to know the skin as an organ before they can provide treatments which will improve skin problems and skin health for the life of the patient. This program will develop Beauty Therapist’s to become more independent in treating the skin without relying on manufacturer’s training with its biased toward the manufacturer’s product line. This type of training forces the beauty therapist to over sell to the client; compromising trust and the therapist’s credibility.
The program excludes basic beauty treatments such as:
- Make-up Artistry
- Brow Arching
- Lash and Brow Dying
The IAMA PROGRAM INCLUDES:
- Medical Grade Chemical Peels
