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.
The CIDESCO Postgraduate course will be offered from November through to end of May/early June depending on when the exams are scheduled.
In November, all the materials will be sent online which students can prepare at their own pace including notes for Facial Therapy Module, Body Therapy Module, and Anatomy & Physiology Notes together with Revision Questions & Tests.
From December to May we will arrange 10 practical days including mock & final exams from 9.30am until 4.00pm.
During the practical days, the treatments are standardised to CIDESCO Level.
