Habia launches advanced laser courses
The Habia Skills Academy is launching advanced courses for trainers in laser and light-based hair removal this summer. The Level 4 Laser/Light Hair Removal will be held over four days at The Spa Henley-in-Arden, near Stratford-upon-Avon, starting on either June 25 or September 10. The aim is to provide existing operators and trainers with training from experienced educators on the most up-to-date advanced laser or light equipment. The course is aimed at qualified or experienced teachers and assessors, as well as trainers and demonstrators at manufacturers. The course will be delivered by industry experts Barbara Green and Gill Herrick. Green has 31 years' experience in the beauty industry and is one of the few therapists to have studied the BTEC Advanced Award for Laser, Light and Associated Aesthetic Therapies. Herrick joined the beauty industry in 1995 and has delivered training for laser and IPL manufacturers, written courses and lectured at the London College of Fashion. Course sponsors Lynton Laser and Polaris will provide laser machines. Those who complete the courses will receive a nationally recognised Level 4 qualification from HSA founder sponsor VTCT. Fees are £200 per day. Barbara Green and Gill Herrick said: 'Given the lack of teaching qualifications for laser and light systems within the UK, [this course] delivers a much needed and recognised one. Delegates are able to work with a variety of equipment plus they are fast tracked through the new Level 4 qualification.'
