Why we are not an RTO (and don't plan to become one soon)

January 11, 2017

Registered training organisations (RTO) have historically provided vocational training in the beauty industry. But cosmetic medicine has grown up, and fast! The cosmetic medicine industry is not about waxing, eyebrow shape or eyelash extensions it's about skin health, appropriate referral and interventions such as skin resurfacing and the removal of benign lesions. The client treatments are highly complex and require a strong educational foundation as there are often high risk possible adverse outcomes particularly with lasers and other energy based systems.

There has been significant volatility in the VET sector. There has been the withdrawal of VET fee help and large, seemingly well established providers of laser and beauty courses going into administration (see our previous post).

Furthermore, this industry is changing and changing fast! We want to be able to update our curriculum to keep up with you, not every few years and be burdened with paperwork in the process. We want to be able to support you properly too when national uniformity and regulations are released by ARPANSA. If, as Dr Tobias Pincock says “Appropriate training and supervision should be mandatory across Australia” we are ready for that.

The further education for both registered and non-registered health professionals in the cosmetic industry sits firmly in the continuing professional development (CPD) space. This CPD space is well recognised in the health industry and supported by guidelines from AHPRA and professional colleges. That's why.
