Our prices are the most competitive on the market. On top of the listed features above, our academies can also list as many trainers as they wish, and make any changes to their academy contact details without charge.
All academies have the same chances to achieve Gold academy status. All you need to do is achieve consistent good feedback from students. Our top rated academies will also be recognised by being listed on our website as a featured training provider.
As a verified academy with Centre of CPD Excellence, you will be automatically entered into our awards program. We will regularly award the most top rated academies, as well as recognise signifiant milestones, such as reaching 1000 reviews.
High quality training is vital to our industry and we want to reward this by recognising our academies successes.
We will need to see proof of the following for the accreditation application:
We aim to complete all accreditation applications within 7-10 working days from the receipt of all documents and payment.
This is very often done within the week, but can take longer during busier times.
The manual is an integral part of your training course and establishes the content that will be delivered to the student.
Manuals should contain the relevant information a student will need after their course.
We will need to see copies of your manuals prior to accepting a course. Manuals should include the following:
Health and safety
Anatomy and physiology
About the treatment and how the treatment works
Client consultation and consultation form
Pre and post-treatment advice
Centre of CPD Excellence realise that there is a great need for our industry to move with the times and technology.
We are happy for academies to deliver theory online, if this theory is delivered via online video content, zoom or other video messaging app, pre-course study where the student receives the manual but has to undertake a certain level of self-study and assessment based tests or workbook study.
Online theory training has many advantages; it is time saving for you and your students and allows the student to study at their own pace, and repeat the training often to ensure they understand the theory behind the treatment.
Since COVID, many academies have moved training online and this includes the practical element of the course as well as the theory.
Centre of CPD Excellence are happy to accredit online courses, where that course can be safely delivered. This includes:
Theory – where the practical element in face to face.
Theory – where the practical element is delivered via video messaging.
Theory and practical online where the treatment can be safely delivered in this way. The treatments should be non-invasive and you will need to ensure that the student can gain adequate insurance post training for the online course.
Theory and practical online where the treatment is an advanced procedure or masterclass, where the student holds a foundation certificate in the treatment. An example of this would be Russian volume lashes, where the student has previous face to face classic lash training. Advanced injectable procedures, whereby the student has a foundation certificate in the subject area and has adequate experience.
We will not cover foundation courses where the training is fully online, this includes; Botulinum toxin, microneedling, dermaplaning or any treatment that involves breaking the skin.
Academies should always check that the insurance companies you refer students too are happy for this method of teaching delivery.
To accredit an online course we will still need to receive the same document as regular training. We recommend that students receive a manual to download or keep to refer back to. If you do not have a manual, then a copy of the powerpoint slides or script are acceptable.
We will need to receive the following policies and procedures:
Acceptable Use Policy
Equality & Diversity Policy
GDPR & Data Protection Policy
Health & Safety Policy
Quality Assurance Policy
Bullying and Harassment Policy
Learner Induction Policy
Violence and Threatening Behaviour Policy
Terms & Conditions
Centre Management Policy
