There is no final examination but you will be continuously assessed using a range of methods including observation of practical work, oral questions, assignments, tests and portfolio evidence to demonstrate your understanding.

You will be required to undertake independent study outside the taught sessions, workshops and practice your skills. Practical skills will be taught in Phytodermal Salon and in Phytodermal Institute of Beauty in by highly experienced Trainers (more than 13 years) and then you will progress onto working on members of your class, friends or relatives for realistic practice.
