COURSE REQUIREMENTS

 

This Diploma is delivered through a blend of distance education and practical delivery and assessment in the workplace. 

Distance education means you are sent the learning content and theory assessment tasks so that you may study at home at a time convenient to you.  When you have successfully completed your theory assessments, we will arrange for you to practise your skills and be assessed in a mutually agreed professional workplace.

There are no formal entry requirements or pre requisites for this qualification however, as noted in Units of Competency, there is a pre requisite unit for three of our electives.

To complete this qualification, you will need:

Sufficient language, literacy and numeracy skills to complete the course.

To read the AIBA Handbook to ensure awareness of the rights and responsibilities as a learner.

When you have successfully completed the theory component the learning content prepares you for the practical learning and assessment in a workplace or in some instances, a simulated workplace.

Practical assessments include a range of procedures which are scenario based,  using manikins before moving on to live clients. 

As a learner, you will be fully informed each step of the course and assessment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SUPPORT

 

Throughout this qualification, you will be fully supported by AIBA’s qualified trainers.  We provide an exemplary support service for all learners including regular catch up telephone calls and emails.  We are here to assist you throughout your learning journey.

You will receive an Individual Training Plan (ITP) which outlines the order and timeline in which you are expected to complete each unit of competency.

Your ITP will also provide suggested timeframes for receiving support emails, phone calls and Skype mentoring sessions with your trainer.  In addition to these, you are encouraged to call or book a personal mentoring session with your trainer at a mutually agreeable time throughout your course.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ASSESSMENT METHODS

 

Learners receive engaging and visual learning content teamed with comprehensive trainer support.  This learning content and support prepares you for the theory assessments which include:

 

Short answer questions

Scenarios with questions

Case studies

Project activities

 

When you have successfully completed the theory assessment from the learning content and support you have received, you are then ready for the practical learning and assessment in a workplace or in some instances, a simulated workplace.

Practical assessments include a range of procedures and treatments which relate to each unit of competency, that  are scenario based, using manikins before moving on to live clients.

 

Salon Arrangements

 

The practical aspects of the course are trained and assessed in the workplace.  This ensures you experience a live beauty salon and work with live paying clients. You will be assessed providing treatments to these live clients.

If you are already in the beauty industry and working in a salon, and wish to update your qualifications, or advance in your career, AIBA will arrange with your employer block times for the learning and assessment to take place.

If you are not already working in the industry, AIBA will make arrangements for the practical component of learning and assessment to take place in a salon near you.

Each workplace will be audited by AIBA to ensure that all equipment and tools required for this course are in place and ready to use.

Practical blocks take place over a minimum of five full days.

There will be a minimum of four practical blocks which encompasses all of the required units of competency.  Some units of competency will be holistically trained and assessed during this time. For example, practical learning and assessment will be combined for SHBBBOS002 Provide body massages, SHBBBOS004 Provide aromatherapy massages and SHBBBOS004 Prepare personalised aromatic plant oil blends for beauty treatments.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LIVE MODELS

 

You will be required to provide your own models on which to perform treatments and procedures during the practical learning and assessment blocks.

You must provide a minimum of six models.  It is important to have extra models to call in case a model cannot make the appointment time on the day. Australian Institute of Body Arts will assist you with this if required.

This will be discussed in detail with you during a Skype mentoring session.

Models are required to pay a minimum fee to Australian Institute of Body Arts for the services they receive.

All other material, equipment and tools will be supplied to you by Australian Institute of Body Arts and are included in the course fees.
