One of the most prevalent topics in the media this year with regards to the cosmetic industry has been regulation, training and concerns for the lack of practitioner training and experience. There has been a light shone on the necessity for consumers to identify what training their practitioner has completed and what experience they have gained in an ever evolving and growing industry which is hard enough for industry professionals to keep up with, let alone consumers.

We are so pleased to bring to your attention the Australasian College of Health and Wellness. A college dedicated to the health and wellness industry, with training targeted specifically for Cosmetic Practitioners, the time has never been more ideal for those of you working in the industry to upgrade your training, knowledge and experience, or for those of you looking to enter the industry to know which is the most highly regarded training in the country at this time.

Not only has the Australasian College of Health and Wellness developed Bachelor degree level training, it has also been recognised by the Aesthetics Practitioners Advisory Network (APAN), and accepted by the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons. Most importantly, however, it has endorsement from the Tertiary Education Quality Standards Authority, the national regulator for the tertiary training sector. So what does all this mean?

It means when you undergo a degree through the College not only will you be able to access some of the most up-to-date training available, you will be supported through the process by lectures and tutorials with highly qualified doctors and lecturers, as well as partaking in a supervised learning environment through their on-site clinics. It is this hands-on experience where you can gain practical experience to take out into the real world that we think gives this college a real edge. There are eight clinics in total, all equipped with the latest equipment such as laser, light and micro-dermabrasion machines that are used in clinics all over Australia today. Students are also supported through the Learning Resource Centre where they have access to a library holding course textbooks, recommended readings, internet and online resources and academic literature.

Covering such topics as Human Structure and Function, Diagnosis of Skin Disorders, Dermal Therapy, Ageing and the Skin, Perioperative Skin Care just to mention a few, the course covers pretty much everything you would want to know should you already be working in the industry, or should you wish to join it.

Located in Glebe, Sydney, the Australasian College of Health and Wellness is definitely leading the country in its hands-on approach to training our practitioners and industry professionals, and we are happy to support them as they assist in creating a better-trained and knowledgeable group of practitioners that work in Australia today.

The course is also available via correspondence. If you would like more information on this just head to their website at
