Benefits of completing a Diploma of Beauty Therapy at a CIDESCO Accredited School

Only the very best Beauty Schools in Australia can meet the rigorous high standards to be approved as a CIDESCO Accredited School. We inspect the premises and facilities as well as the qualifications of the Educators and availability of equipment, quality of the curriculum and volume of learning before approving anySchool.

If a School meets the required standards, they are placed on probation for the first year at which time a CIDESCO International examiner will conduct an independent examination of the students skills and knowledge to ensure that delivery of a quality education has been provided before the School is approved as a CIDESCO Accredited School. This external independent assessment of students continues every year.

This is a very thorough and closely monitored process which is why only the leading education providers are able to achieve this accreditation.

As well as knowing that you have chosen the very best School to study at - by completing the CIDESCO assessments at the end of your beauty course - you can achieve an additional prestigious Diploma of Beauty Therapy globally recognised qualification which can open doors to employment in leading Spas and Salons around the globe.
