We recommends that all learners should be over 18 years of age at the commencement of course. We will consider the suitability or the course to meet the learner’s needs and younger learners will be encouraged to consider a lower level qualification prior to enrolling in the Certificate IV in Beauty Therapist qualification.
Learners will have been assessed for their prior knowledge and skills through the Pre- Training Review and enrolment. Where appropriate RPL or credit transfer will be recommended to learners.
Prior to enrolling a potential learner, an enrolment officer will conduct a Pre-Training Review, which aims to identify the learner’s training needs and the suitability of this course to meet their needs, through questions on previous education or training, relevance of the course to the learner’s desired job outcome, relevant experience. The review also aims to identify any support the learner may need to successfully undertake the course and possible RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) or Credit Transfer opportunities which may reduce the amount of training required.
Through the Pre-Training Review, the learner will demonstrate that they have necessary skills and personal attributes to successfully undertake the course and that the course selected is the suitable and the most suitable to meet their needs.

An assessor will assess LLN, record the outcome and identify support services (if needed).
All learners must have an appropriate level of English language proficiency to enable them to successfully complete this qualification. The English language skills of a learner will be assessed before allowing that learner to undertake the course. If learners are unable to show an appropriate level of English language proficiency, they may be referred to an English program for their skills to be brought up to the appropriate level required to undertake the course.
Learners are expected to have physical abilities and standing capacity required to perform tasks as those undertaken by a hairdresser and make-up artist worker in the practical place while undergoing training. Workers in these roles work physically close to other people and will spend a large amount of time on their feet. As part of this course learners are expected to handle chemical products and different lotions and creams of beauty products which will be exposed to their skins and eyes; prospective learners must consider any personal barriers before enrolling in this course.
