ST Mary's College

Level 2 Award Wax Depilation

This course teaches the skills and knowledge to be able to carry out all waxing treatments.  Waxing is an essential skill for a therapist to have as it is a very popular salon treatment.

As well as the 4 main days of the course, you will be required to attend to sit the written exam – a suitable date will be discussed with you. This unit also contains Health & Safety and Client care & communication, which will be mainly completed at home by yourselves.  You will be given all the information you need in order to complete these.  However if you have already completed these within a previous unit, there is no need to re-do them.

You must be aware that there will be the need for considerable revision at home.  I endeavour to teach you as much as I can during the course days and will send you test, quizzes and questions to test your knowledge throughout the course but it is imperative for you to revise.

It is essential that you practise you waxing techniques at home during the course.  Failure to do so could result in not passing the course in the allotted time frame and incurring further costs.  Waxing skills are easy to learn but hard to master!  For your waxing assessments you must be fully competent in your skills and time management for each area being treated. 

Assignment – yes Exams – 2 Kit required – yes*

*It is essential that you have a wax pot and associated materials at home with which to practise.  You can choose either to purchase the items yourself or I can provide a complete kit for you, the cost of which will be added to the cost of your course.
