Course overview

Establish the skills and experience you need to excel as a retail sale consultant in the beauty and cosmetic industry with this entry-level qualification. This course will give students a feel for what it will be like to work in cosmetics sales, providing hands-on lessons and tasks.

According to the Australian Government's Job Outlook service, the number of people working as retail sales assistants is expected to see stable future growth. This very large occupational area is expected to create around 445,000 job openings over the next five years.  

Offering practical training that will provide you with a hands-on experience, our experienced educators will teach you how to design and apply make-up, offer advice on beauty products and services, and sell to the retail customer. You will also learn to communicate as part of a salon team and conduct salon financial transactions.

Successfully completing this qualification will give you a taste of what you can expect in the retail cosmetic industry while giving the skills you need to boost your employment opportunities.
