Frequently Asked Questions
What is the main benefit of an online course?
You can study at your own convenience, in your own time and at your own pace, repeating any lesson as many times as you need to. This is one-on-one training at its best.
What if I am having trouble or don't understand something?
If you are experiencing any difficulty at all, assistance is only an email away. You will get a reply as quickly as whatever the time zone difference allows - 7 days a week.
Do I need prior experience in this field?
There are no pre-requisites, as everything you need to know from A to Z is covered in each course. All the courses have been designed with the understanding that you have no prior knowledge of the subject.
How does the Course work?
Once you have chosen and paid for the course you want to complete, you will be emailed the Course theory book, written step-by-step Procedure, List of products and Equipment needed, Short Answer Test and a Passcode to the Practical one-on-one Training Video.
How long is the Video passcode valid for?
The passcode for the training video is valid for one month, and the Short Answer Test has to be completed within that month to receive certification.
Do I have to do exams and assignments?
There are no practical exams or assignments, but once you have completed the theory book and gained confidence with your practical skills, there is a Short Answer Test which you must sit and pass to receive your Certificate. This assessment will prove your understanding of both the theory and practical sides of the course.
Are the Courses Nationally Recognized Training?
The Centre of Wellness was an RTO delivering the Diplomasí of Beauty Therapy, Reflexology and Remedial Massage, but they relinquished their RTO status several years ago, when a need was recognized for one-on-one quality training.
All the courses listed online today, whilst no longer Nationally Recognized Training, have all been extracted from the relevant Diploma and offered as stand-alone practical units that deliver competency and confidence.
Will I be Qualified?
Our Certificate is legal and valid for use anywhere in Australia and also many other countries in the world - to work from home, work in a salon or start your own business. It is also recognized in the industry for wholesale and insurance purposes.
If you are outside of Australia, you will need to check locally to see if any licensing requirements are in force or more formal qualifications are required.
What do I need to have at hand when I am doing the course?
You will need everything on the equipment and products list, and a model to practice on, preferably one who goes to a professional salon for the service you are learning, so they can provide constructive feedback to you.
What if I have concern with one of the practical tasks?
All possible problems the student may encounter are covered in both the theory and the video, and remedies or practical solutions are given.
