Level 3 Qualified Skin Specialist

Level 3 Qualified Skin Specialist


This is course will give you EVERYTHING you need to become a VTCT Level 3 Qualified Skin Specialist.

Why do you need THIS course?

Previously the beauty industry had very lax regulation and you could start your business with just CPD accreditation. However, insurance companies, professional skin care brands and professional equipment providers are now looking for qualifications like VTCT as these are a set standard that require assignments and exams at a very minimum of Level 2 and in most cases Level 3.

This means a combination of both VTCT and CPD means your business will meet industry standards

What is the difference between CPD and VTCT?

Qualifications are listed on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which is the national framework of UK qualifications, and the certificate of achievement is issued by an Awarding Organisation. Your certificate means you are ‘qualified’ in that subject

CPD is a piece of training developed by an individual or organisation that sits outside the regulated qualifications framework. It confers a skill not a qualification.

Treatments such as dermaplaning can only be completed as a CPD therefore a combination of both VTCT and CPD will increase your revenue.

If you prefer one treatment at a time then we offer this too. You can find all our courses here

Please confirm dates and availability with us prior to purchasing

Who Is This Course Suitable For?

This course is perfect for those who are beginners with no experience. However, the course can be tailored for those who have partial qualifications/ accreditation and would like to become a qualified Level 3 practitioner.
