The Guild – Alternatively, you can study each treatment separately through The Guild, allowing you to master each skill, qualify and start practising in a timely way. Theory is completed mainly online through modules, giving you the flexibility to do this element in your own time and at your own pace. Practical learning and assessments are completed in the training salon, along with value added theory to support your online learning.
