So pleased I found New Skills Academy.
The diploma in Waxing course is fantastic, I am really enjoying it. The information provided is in depth and covers everything you require to learn and be knowledgeable enough to work on clients.
It is an easy to follow set up and being able to access the course content on either my home computer or my mobile device gives me the ease to always check back if ever unsure of something.
I would 100% recommend this course to beginners, or like myself, anyone wanting to just refresh their knowledge. Expanding my knowledge has been made easy! So pleased I found New Skills Academy.

I enjoyed every second of it.
What a great course it was! I enjoyed every second of it. The course itself was very informative and easy to understand, particularly liked the videos! Perfect way to learn in your own time with no time limits on the course.
The assessment was very well timed, had just enough time to answer the questions which some of them did require more thinking then others. I am delighted that I passed the first time although it is good to know that if you fail, you can try again.
Would highly recommend this course to those wanting to learn about waxing or just as a refresher. Thank you so much!

The videos were very well done
I found the course extremely informative. Things were explained in great detail, it was easy to manoeuvre through the modules and to go back through previous modules if needed. The videos were very well done and gave a better perspective of what had been explained in that module.
The first few modules went through the whole background of waxing and the pros and cons of each hair removal method available to people. It then moved on to the practical side of waxing.
I would recommend this course to anyone considering waxing as a career or wanting to perfect their own skills for at home.

Fantastic easy step by step videos and diagrams
The waxing course was very easy to follow and full of all the information needed. Fantastic easy step by step videos and diagrams.
Great help for setting up your own business as this course gives you all the correct information and procedures to follow.
I work from home offering a variety of other treatments, including eye lash extensions, threading and tanning now having this treatment is an added bonus… and very happy clients.
Would definitely recommend to others who are looking to follow in the same direction as me to broaden their treatments to offer for their own clients 🙂

Everything was broken down so well and helpful videos along the way
Quick and easy, can learn in your own time which was great. I have an 8-week old baby and managed to complete with no pressure. Everything was broken down so well and helpful videos along the way.
Will be taking more courses with New Skills Academy, I wish I did the course years ago. I have the experience in waxing but because I gave up my college course to have my baby, I don’t have the time to go back and I was close to qualifying.
I took this course and passed without all the hassle of going back for a year. Thank you, New Skills Academy.
