Do I receive formal accreditation upon finishing the course?

At this stage, no. You will receive a certificate upon completion, but this will not be recognised as formal accreditation from any governing body. We are working to be able to offer this next year.

Can I do the course from interstate or overseas?

At this stage, no. All successful applicants are expected to either live in Melbourne or surrounding areas or have the ability to stay in Melbourne at your own expense.

Yes. We will provide you with all course materials on your first day at your retreat.

How does the application process work?

After submitting your application, our Living Skin Training team will review it and determine whether the course is the right fit for you and vice versa. If unsuccessful, we will provide a detailed reason as to why and what future courses might be right for you. If successful, we will let you know next steps and payment options.

What are the entry requirements?

We require you to have accreditation and experience in either the Beauty Therapy or Body Work industries (e.g. reiki, acupuncture, massage etc.) Given that this course is focused on facials, we’re only taking applicants who have experience in working with bodies and faces.
