Renowned for their caring approach to training, top of the range products and experience in the industry, Impress Aesthetics is the perfect training academy for beauty professionals looking to expand their skills. We spoke to a recent Impress Aesthetics student, Olivia Maish, to hear about her experience at the academy.


What course did you train in?

I trained in the Access to Aesthetics course and the Foundation Dermal Filler course. Compared to a lot of other practitioners in the area, the courses were well priced and detailed with no questions left unanswered. I feel confident in my training and have been offered ongoing support from the academy after I completed my course.


Why did you choose to train in additional courses?

I was already qualified in eyelash extensions and eyebrow lamination for roughly two years but this only worked for me as a side job. After I gained confidence in my skills, I decided I wanted to expand my services and offer more treatments to help build my client base and become a beauty professional to have it as a main source of income.


With so many training courses on offer, what made Impress Aesthetics stand out to you?

I had originally joined a different salon to complete my Dermal Filling course, after paying my deposit I looked in to the insurance policies associated with this salon and realised that the company wouldn’t have insured me on any of the treatments I was training in. I was instantly searching for somewhere else to train and a friend recommended the Impress Aesthetics courses. I looked through their social media pages and sent a message asking some questions, Rufaro responded and explained all the necessary steps I’d need to take to reach my goals and advised me on insurance. This support and the peace of mind they provided made Impress Aesthetics stand out to me.


What did you achieve in your training course?

In my training courses I learnt so much more than I had expected. I’m not a very outgoing person but the courses built my confidence and taught me invaluable communication skills to use with my clients. I also learnt marketing and social media skills which have helped me build my client base and business. All the treatments I trained in at Impress Aesthetics Academy, I have added to my service list and I will definitely return when I want to learn more and expand my business further. @iatrainingacademy
