What is the difference between a VTCT beauty qualification and ITEC or CIBTAC?
VTCT is internationally recognised and will allow you to work throughout Europe and beyond. You will be fully insurable. The VTCT course content is reviewed annually to exclude outdated treatments, we believe this makes it more relevant to treatments required in today's beauty world.
Why are there no examinations with VTCT The VTCT syllabus encompasses ongoing assessment and case studies. This helps tutors identify individual strengths and weaknesses and target areas that need work. It also eliminates the stress of one final exam.
How much is the VTCT registration fee? The fee is set by VTCT but as a guide line is usually in the region of €150
Are there any other fees for the Beauty Specialist and Spa Therapist course that I should be aware of? Uniform costs run at around €95. Allow €20 for photo copied items. Allow €90-€120 for books. Allow €100 for Beauty Kits. Make Up kits can be purchased at wholesale prices (€150-€200)
I just want to attend a workshop do I need to be a qualified therapist ? No, where there is a prerequisite this will be indicated in the course information (e.g. advanced Waxing)
I do not drive is the Academy on a bus route? Yes, the Academy is in the centre of Swords and easily reached by bus
