Accreditation of branded or non-GTi courses
Suppliers of branded products who want to have their training accredited for membership and insurance purposes can submit their courses for accreditation.
Any course submitted for accreditation must satisfy the requirements of the relevant National Occupational Standards (NOS) if applicable. All courses must cover treatment procedure, sensitivity patch testing requirements , health & safety law, sterilisation, disinfection, salon and personal hygiene, data protection law, consultation procedures, maintaining accurate client record cards, relevant anatomy & physiology, contra-indications, contra-actions, relevant common skin infections, diseases and disorders of the face and body, Doctors referrals and consent, aftercare advice, treating minors, special treatment licence laws e.g. ear piercing, electrolysis and body massage, professionalism and code of ethics, theory & practical assessments and Guild membership and insurance details for your students. In many cases it will be necessary for students to complete the GTi Professional Standards course as a pre-requisite for non GTi courses.
If you are submitting your own courses for accreditation, we aim to complete the initial accreditation process within 20 working days after receipt of each course application, providing there are a minimum level of amendments required. Courses that require a significant level of amendments could take longer and may also incur additional fees.
We will not normally accept private courses for Guild Accreditation where there is a GTi course or a combination of GTi courses available in the same subject. However, exceptions can be allowed for branded product treatments or where a treatment technique varies significantly from the existing GTi course.
Accreditation costs start from £295 + VAT depending on the level of work required. Please call us on 01332 224833 for further details.
