Courses Information

We offer short industry relevant courses run by industry professionals. All graduated students receive a certificate of completion. If you are in a country like Australia where there are no licensing requirements, our certificate is all you need to get started in the industry. You are also able to obtain insurance.

The Hair and Beauty industry in Australia was deregulated in 1986, therefore it is no longer a legal requirement to complete a course run by a registered training organisation (RTO) to work in the industry or run your own salon.

Our courses offer specific and explicit training in each study area that leaves our students more accomplished and our students are often offered positions over other students from other schools.

So, to be very clear – successfully completing our certificate courses will enable you to gain employment in retail, freelancing, beauty salons and spa’s. You will also be able to use your certificate to gain insurance for your business as well as membership into professional makeup brands ‘professional discount programs’.

You don’t need to be certified to be educated, we teach you to become skilled and experienced which in turn makes you qualified.

All applicants must have completed Year 10 (or equivalent) and be 16 years or older in order to apply to study at the TBA.

Yes! The deposit comes off the course total.

No experience required – we got you! We offer fundamental courses to get you started. To be successful in this fast-paced industry, you need to learn the basics from the best and most talented. All of our courses are taught by industry experts who currently work in the industry ad are highly sort after.

It’s easy to enroll in any of our courses, do it all online via this website, simply add the course or courses you want to do to your Shopping Cart and purchase. You will then be contacted by the TBA shortly thereafter via email to confirm your enrolment and we provide further detailed information about the course. A non-refundable deposit is also required to secure your spot.

At TBA, we believe in providing value rather than just trying to offer a lower quality course that doesn't help our students achieve once they're working. Many other online courses are cheaper but aren't industry relevant. We build our content from the ground up to be:
- Hands on
- Practical, and
- Industry relevant

Over 90% of our students are working on the industry and we are confident that we provide the highest quality training available in Australia.

Academy Information

At the TBA we believe that to be the best, you have to learn from the best. All of our trainers are fully qualified to teach and are experienced and active in their own specialist field within the Film, Fashion, TV, Theatre, Hair and Beauty industries. We believe that the teaching experience and master skills that our trainers have gives our students a far superior advantage in the industry once they’ve finished learning with us.

Our class sizes are kept small, intimate and friendly. This allows you to receive individual tuition and ensures we maintain the high standard of makeup training for which TBA is renowned. You’ll be in classes with max 8-10 students.

We are located in an industrial business park area at 36 Aylesbury Drive, Altona, 3018, Victoria (Building 8).

Ample car parking (as well as disability parking) is available in a well-lit and safe area. The academy building also accommodates students with disabilities. As we like to have a duty of care whilst our students and visitors are on our premises, there is always a staff member on-site that can perform basic first aid if ever needed.

Yes. Students are responsible for obtaining models on the days designated. For example:

- Models are required from week 2 for Beginners/Intermediate Makeup (if you are unable to get a model for your practical, you can work on yourself)

- Models are required each week for Advanced Makeup (if you are unable to get a model for your practical, you can work on yourself)

- Models are required each week for Hair (if you are unable to get a model for your practical, you can purchase a mannequin head from the school)

- Models are required every week for Pro Nails (if you are unable to get a model, you can work on yourself or nail hands are available for purchase at the school).

- Models are required from week 2 for Classic and Volume Eyelash Extensions

- Models are required from weeks 5 to 12 for Barbering

In unusual circumstances when you can’t get a model you will have options to work on either a mannequin head (Hair), your own hands (Nails), your own face (Makeup). We do not encourage this though, you must ensure that you are able to get a reliable model every week where required so that we can properly assess your work.

A certificate will be issued to students who successfully complete a course. Online Students will receive a PDF certificate via email, onsite will receive a framed certificate onsite. ($10 fee if online student requests a framed hard copy)

If you are sick or absent for a class, you will have access to a LIVE stream session VIA our FB PRIVATE FORUM. This class will be available on the forum for 48hrs.

If you are on a payment plan, payment must still be made as per contract . Payment plans are put in place to assist you financially and our TBA policy is signed by all students at the time of enrolment. Your certificate will not be issued till all missed classes are made up. You can book a one on one lesson at an extra cost. If you miss more than 3 classes, you will have to pay $100 for each class you need to re-sit and you may be required to produce a medical certificate.
