Postgraduate beauty diploma
Ideal for Beauty Therapists who hold a minimum level 3 or equivalent qualification such as ITEC or CIBTAC and who have been working in the spa and beauty industry for at least 3 years.
In upgrading their certification to the world’s most distinguished beauty therapy diploma, therapists need a minimum of 40 hours of hands-on practice with CIDESCO tutors and to complete theoretical modules as home study.
A CIDESCO qualification benefits the therapist with a worldwide recognised qualification, highly paid beauty therapy jobs, and better worldwide career opportunities. Cidesco remains the highest qualification in the beauty industry.
