PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS FOR THERAPISTS
Professional Therapists are required to comply with all relevant legislation affecting their businesses and must act professionally at all times towards clients and fellow practitioners.
Professional Therapists are responsible for the health and safely of their clients and themselves. They must also abide by a strict code of ethics as laid down by the Guild of Professional Beauty Therapists.
This course in Professional Standards for Therapists covers all the essential legislation and professional ethics required for working in the industry as specified in the National Occupation Standards for level 2 and 3 treatments in beauty, nails and holistic therapy. This course is a pre-requisite for many practical treatment courses and is highly recommended in support of professional membership and development through the Guild of Professional Beauty Therapists.
As a Professional Therapist, you will need to comply with any new legislation that is introduced, and be aware of any changes that are made to existing legislation.
ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY
An understanding of Anatomy and Physiology is required as the basis of all practical training courses in beauty and holistic therapy. This Anatomy and Physiology Certificate is accredited by the Guild of Beauty Therapists, the UK’s leading professional beauty trade body. The course covers all the Anatomy and Physiology required for the Level 2 and Level 3 National Occupational Standards (NOS) for beauty, nails and holistic therapy treatments.
HEALTH & SAFETY
Health & Safety is an essential part of any business. It protects the owners, the staff and the customers, and is something that everyone should be aware of. Whatever your role, you need to know what health and safety legislation you are governed by, as well as understanding a safe way to conduct your tasks. In any walk of life, prevention is better than cure, and so a good understanding of health and safety will help to keep problems and incidents to a minimum.
