There are several areas which were proposed in the Case for Change where further consultation and feedback are required. Please refer to the Questions for Consideration in the Draft 1 Consultation Guide, available to download on the Feedback Forum page.
In accordance with the Training Package Products Policy, qualification codes have been updated to reflect the expected year of endorsement and Unit of Competency codes have been updated where there have been changes of a material nature.
2) Cosmetic Tattooing
The existing Unit of Competency relevant to Cosmetic Tattooing, SHBBSKS003 Design and provide cosmetic tattooing, has been deleted and a new qualification has been developed to cover cosmetic tattooing for the face (eyeliner, lips and eyebrows) as well as scalp micropigmentation and breast areola. The qualification has been designed so that it is flexible enough to for learners to choose one or more areas of interest.
3) Skin Rejuvenation Treatments
The Advanced Diploma of Skin Therapy has been developed to include the following advanced treatment areas:
- Light Emitting Diode (LED) skin treatments
- Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) skin treatments
- Laser skin treatments
- Skin needling
- Chemical peels
- Consultation and post-treatment care.
The qualification structure has been designed to allow the selection of either IPL or Laser or both IPL and Laser through the streamed elective options.
The Case for Change proposed the development of Units of Competency around sonophoresis and sound vibration. The Skin Rejuvenation TAC confirmed that sound vibration treatments and sonophoresis (ultrasound) for any purpose other than product infusion is inappropriate in Vocational Education and Training. Sonophoresis for product infusion is covered in the existing Unit, SHBBFAS006 Provide specialised facial treatments in the SHB50119 Diploma of Beauty Therapy, and therefore has not been included in the SHB60219 Advanced Diploma of Skin Therapy.
