The Australasian Academy of Cosmetic Dermal Science (AACDS) is Australia’s largest and longest established vocational provider of nationally accredited qualifications in Dermal Therapies and Cosmetic Nursing.
AACDS courses are delivered online with practical training units delivered in Sydney, Melbourne, Gold Coast and Perth. On-campus theory classes are also available in Perth and Gold Coast. A unique aspect of all AACDS courses is the practical training. Hands-on practical training in dermal therapies is delivered with only two students per trainer/assessor within state-of-the-art student clinic facilities. This student/trainer ratio allows students to have exclusivity to aesthetic equipment as opposed to sharing and/or just observing.
AACDS currently offers the highest qualification available in Australia in dermal therapies. The 52707WA Graduate Diploma of Dermal Therapies is developed specifically for beauty and health professionals wanting to learn a range a dermal therapy modalities and gain a formal, recognized qualification. This qualification contains a sound balance of theory and practical units covering epidermal resurfacing and light-based techniques, cosmetic dermatology and anti-aging medicine.
