About This Course

Looking to expand your existing skills portfolio or give your beauty salon a competitive edge? Our Beauty Therapy and Aromatherapy Level 3 course bundle can offer you the perfect combination of skills in aromatherapy and beauty treatments that will ensure that your CV stands out from the crowd.

The reality is, more and more beauty salons are including aromatherapy treatments within their services menu. As a result, if you are keen to break into this niche; establish a career/start a new business, or help your salon to stay on top; then having this combination of skills is essential.

Luckily, this homebased course can help you to achieve these credentials without you having to sacrifice work or attend any classes.

Instead with just 160 hours (approximately) of study, you can fit this course bundle around your current work commitments, and study at a pace that is right from you.

Day, night, fast or slow… you can control your rate of learning and can benefit from the added perk of being able to achieve all of this from the comfort of your own home!

And this is fantastic news if work, family or social obligations are preventing you from getting the skills/qualifications you want, as our highly adaptable course can easily be moulded to work around you, and not the other way around.

Please Note: These courses can be enrolled onto separately; however, by enrolling onto this joint course you will receive a considerable discount.
