Strategies for effectively dealing with anxiety
5 November 2023
With consumers expecting better treatment outcomes in an increasingly competitive market, it is essential that new practitioners receive a higher standard of education and training.
ACHW’s Undergraduate Certificate in Dermal Interventions is a 6-month course exploring the most in-demand dermal intervention modalities used in the industry today. It is designed to provide students with the theoretical knowledge and practical expertise needed to confidently succeed as a skin and laser therapist.
Students will gain a thorough understanding of skin biology, the various ways that its health is impacted, and how this affects the ageing process.
They will then participate in authentic clinical learning environments, learning how to use microdermabrasion treatments, chemical peels, laser technology for hair reduction and skin rejuvenation, skin needling, and more on real patients. This combination of scientific theory and practical experience ensures that graduates are fully prepared to meet dermal therapy goals.
Comparable programs to this Undergraduate Certificate are the Diploma of Beauty Therapy, although this takes 1 year to complete, has higher tuition costs, only covers basic beauty treatments, and is at a lower academic level overall, or the Advanced Diploma of Skin Therapy which is also a higher cost, takes longer to complete and does not have the same advanced modalities of the Undergraduate Certificate.
Another advantage of this Undergraduate Certificate is that it offers a direct articulation pathway toward higher education. The four units of this course are part of ACHW’s Associate and Bachelor degrees, so graduates are able to progress into one of these programs with full, free recognition of this study.
