Your Qualification certificate will be claimed from the awarding body (Beauty Guild) only once you have successfully completed your  practical assessment and have been confirmed as fully complete with the theory.

Students wishing to purchase a replacement certificate may do so by emailing us.  A small charge will be applicable.

Changes In Course Set Up

AABY reserves the right to alter the course venue and timetable where necessary at any time..  In extreme circumstances it may be necessary to reschedule or cancel a course due to insufficient numbers.

Starter Kits

KITS ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE COURSE FEE. You can purchase these by emailing AABY. The starter kit contents give you some idea of the minimum basic items you will require, however there may be additional items you will look to add beyond the starter kit(s) once you begin practising to enhance your treatments. Pls check your course outline to see if you need to purchase a kit before completing the enrolment process.

Beauty Insurance (Public Liability Insurance)

Once you have completed and passed your course with AABY you will need to arrange professional insurance which will cover you to work on clients, family and friends. Insurance is needed if you are practising on friends and family in the lead up to your practical day.

If you hold an existing policy, you are responsible to ensure the insurance provider will extend your cover to include the new treatment(s) and for covering any cost to make changes. AABY cannot accept responsibility for issues resulting with insurance companies where students fail to check this prior to booking.

Health & Safety

It is essential all students abide by all policies regarding health & safety, security, student conduct and all regulations relating to AABY Beauty Academy.

Please wear black loose clothing, hair tied back and no jewellery and wear closed comfy shoes.

Patch test requirements must be completed prior to your course. (48 hours at least)

All students are required to disclose any medical conditions at the time of booking, which will be dealt in the strictest of confidence. Some conditions may  not allow you  to participate fully within a course. An important part of training is to deliver and receive treatments.

Social Media Advertising

Waxing Courses

In consideration of other students participating in the course, you must be prepared to give AND RECEIVE the waxing treatment.  If you attend the course with less than 5mm of hair growth or are unprepared to receive the treatment, you will not be allowed to take part, resulting in the loss of all course fees. Male students are required to provide a suitable female model upon which to practice due to the nature of these treatments.

Manicure & Pedicure, Luxury Manicure & Pedicure and Gel Polish Courses

Please ensure any nail extensions or enhancements such as gel polish are removed prior to attending the course, as you will give and receive treatments working on the natural nails. Failure to remove such before the training day may result in being unable to participate within the course and a rescheduling fee being applicable.

Lashes & Brows

Prior to training for  courses relating to the above you will be required to complete a patch test for the lash lift / tinting and glue products we use on the course at least 48 hours before your course commences.

Please ensure that eyelash extensions have been removed prior to any training involving eyelash tinting/lash lift or individual or Russian lash course. Those who have undergone facial cosmetic procedures to include surgery, dermal fillers of any kind or semi-permanent make-up / facial tattooing or micro-blading within the last 12 weeks may be unable to participate within these courses. Failure to disclose these treatments prior to booking your course may result in loss of course fees.

Massage/Holistic Courses

Due to health and safety reasons, we do not allow students who are under 12 weeks or over 36 weeks pregnant to partake in practical training or assessment days.

Adjustments will be made to accommodate medical conditions where possible and practical. A medical certificate may be required in line with our insurance policy. Where students are unable to receive treatments for medical reasons, a female model may be requested to be provided by the student for each training day.
