Certificate IV in Beauty Therapy
This qualification reflects the role of individuals who are competent in a prescribed range of beauty therapy treatments and services, including facial massage, lash and brow treatments, nail technology services, make-up, waxing, body massage, and aromatherapy; as well as providing advice on and selling retail skin care and cosmetic products.

This qualification is suitable for an Australian Apprenticeship pathway.
