Diploma of Beauty Therapy


The SHB50115 Diploma of Beauty Therapy course is the highest qualification available in beauty therapy. It suits those who would like to become industry professionals and facilitates new learning pathways. Graduates would have completed a minimum of 25 units in which they would have acquired knowledge on various aspects of the industry ranging from the basic tasks of providing facial treatments to the more complex tasks of investigating new products and services.

Graduates in the field have many career options to choose from. The beauty industry is attractive and very dynamic.

New research and technologies have geared the industry towards the practice of Dermal Therapies. At ACBT, we recognize the need to offer our students and future students options so that they stay on top of the industry needs, therefore, we provide further education into the field of Dermal Sciences through the Australasian Academy of Cosmetic Dermal Science.
