    Interactive training

    The training was interactive and I enjoyed this because I absolutely love makeup and want to have a career in this field. The course covered special effects makeup and new techniques that I was unaware of, but was very happy to learn. I found this training highly useful for my career advancement.

    Career aspiration

    I took this course to improve my career opportunities as someone who aspires to work in the beauty industry. I have some skills in this regard, but nothing close to what I learned through this course. It was a good learning experience for me, and one that I strongly recommend to other aspiring beauty therapists and makeup artists.

    Tackled my time there well

    I was new to e-learning and was rather nervous about how it would be. The representative at Study365 tackled me well and made me feel at ease and comfortable all at once. My nerves dissipated and I was able to proceed with the course. It was a fabulous learning experience.
