Their work involves the self-directed application of knowledge and skills with substantial depth in some areas where judgement is required in planning and selecting appropriate equipment, services and techniques. Work is typically conducted in beauty salons and spas. No occupational licensing, certification or specific legislative requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.
