Qualification standards accepted for insurance

We require our insured members to have completed and passed a Level 2 qualification or equivalent training in their chosen discipline; beauty, nails or holistic therapy. We have also accredited a number of short courses and you can locate an approved course near you on our Find Beauty Training website.

High standards are extremely important to BABTAC, many local authorities are now insisting on similar levels of qualification to issue business licences. Please contact your your local authority for more information regarding licenses.

If you are unsure about your qualifications, please call our membership department on 01452 623 110 (option 1) or email info@babtac.com.
