This is a preparatory qualification that provides a defined and limited range of basic skills and knowledge used in hairdressing salons by individuals who provide assistance with client services. These routine and repetitive tasks are completed under direct supervision and with guidance from hairdressers who manage the client service.
The combined skills and knowledge do not provide for a job outcome as a hairdresser and this qualification is intended to prepare individuals for further training.
No occupational licensing, certification or specific legislative requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.
The SHB20216 Certificate II in Salon Assistant program reflects the role of individuals who work as salon assistants and are competent in communicating in the workplace, interacting with, and providing service to clients and assistance to colleagues. They perform routine functions under direct supervision as part of a hairdressing team.
