About Our Internationally Recognised Spa Therapy Courses in South Africa

Holding high esteem in the industry, we have been teaching beauty therapy since 1965 and have over the years earned an outstanding reputation in supplying the beauty industry with some of the top spa and beauty therapists who have gone on to achieve remarkable national and international success. For those who aspire to do the same, our full-time two year (with our optional third year) spa beauty therapy diploma is the best choice to secure your career.

The first year is all about the theoretical and practical aspects of skin and beauty care therapies. Subjects range from facial techniques, massage, nutrition, cosmetic chemistry and spa treatments. On completion of the first year, students will be able to confidently carry out specialised therapies, apply professional make-up for all skin types and occasions, operate all the latest electrical machinery, remove hair, and perform manicures and pedicures.

The second year is an extension from the first year programme, with the inclusion of specialised massage techniques and hydrotherapy treatments, complex facial and body treatments, as well as sales, business and marketing.  Within the second year students will get to unveil their learned skills, whilst working with real paying clients in a real salon environment.

Third year is the specialised year, where students have the chance to complete subjects on an ITEC level, which is recognised as specialised qualifications. Students are also given the option of completing the prestigious ITEC Honours Diploma and the CIDESCO world renowned 1 year spa therapy diploma, which includes advanced therapeutic body therapies, such as electrotherapy, cosmetology, aromatherapy and reflexology, manual lymphatic drainage and Swedish, Indian and hot stone massage therapies.

While our spa therapy courses in South Africa are recognised by City & Guilds, the international CIDESCO accreditation will without question place you in a league above the rest, especially for those wanting to enter specialised careers in Medical Spas and Plastic Surgeries, which has become one of the most demanding and highest paying career choices throughout the world.
