The aim of the ITEC Level 4 Certificate in Trichology for Hairdressers is to enable students to gain the necessary practical and theoretical skills in order to provide effective Trichology services.
The Certificate is mainly distance learning with some attendance at the School of Trichology required for lectures and assessments. The qualification includes workbooks, lectures, guided learning sessions, clinical observation and written assessment and examination. The course can be studied over a 1 year period (338 hours).
Study for the Certificate includes detailed examination of the science of hair and scalp conditions, an in-depth study of the chemicals used in hair treatments and why they can cause concern, occupational hazards, and how best to advise clients on a healthy lifestyle for beautiful and healthy hair.
Students are supported throughout the course by a dedicated course tutor.
