Industry accreditation and alliances

Our international accreditations, university degree pathways and alliances with industry leaders can spell top quality employment opportunities after you graduate.

International Accreditation

While our Diploma of Beauty Therapy is recognised internationally, the CIDESCO and ITEC qualifications will help you stand out from the crowd.

CIDESCO

CIDESCO issues the world's most prestigious qualifications in aesthetics and beauty therapy. Their qualifications have set acclaimed international standards across the globe.

Founded in 1946 in Brussels, CIDESCO is now represented in over 33 countries worldwide. CIDESCO oversees all its international schools to ensure they adhere to the highest standards in education, assessment and facilities.

 

Our accreditations

In 2003, the Australasian College of Natural Therapies had the honour of becoming Australia's first natural therapy college to become a CIDESCO international school.

Our ANCB Brisbane campus became a training school working towards CIDESCO accreditation in 2010 (AU509), which entitles students the opportunity of sitting the CIDESCO International examination in Queensland.

Selected certificates are available through our International Certification Packages.
