A Little About ACTI…

ACTI is a registered training organisation in Canberra delivering nationally recognised training, specialising in the beauty industry. ACTI delivers cutting edge, modern training courses in beauty therapy, business management, and dermal science. We are conveniently located in Braddon, Canberra. Our specialised training courses are delivered by experienced and dynamic educators. Our aim is to be bold about your future. We are passionate about creating career ready professionals. Our state of-the-art facilities, exceptional teaching faculty, and industry experience sets ACTI apart from others.


In less than 12 months time, you could be working in the job of your dreams, achieving goals you never thought possible. We know that effective leadership and management is integral to business success.

While this course is fantastic for beauty therapists wanting to transition into a management role, this course is also for those seeking a management role in other industries.

We create skilled leaders and managers who can easily transition into the beauty environment or many other industries. We have a career path for you.

The Diploma of Leadership and Management is a fantastic place to start to get your skills and knowledge up to date. From there, there are multiple study options available in a leadership or management role – not just in the beauty industry. Want to own your own spa or lead a team of therapists? Or manage a busy cosmetic clinic or beauty salon? ACTI can take you there.


The BSB51918 Diploma of Leadership and Management has 12 units of competency which are made up of 4 core units and 8 elective units. We’ve selected all the units you need to commence your career in a leadership and management role. This course covers leading and managing teams, communicating with influence, managing quality customer service, managing employee relations and more.


This course is delivered face-to-face at ACTI in Canberra. Our facilities are state-of-the-art and specially designed to meet the needs of this course. Our specialised equipment, quality skin care and fully functional treatment rooms all contribute to ACTI’s second to none learning experience. ACTI offers Distance Education and Mixed Mode learning options for students.

Full Time: 3.5 days per week

Part Time: 2 evenings per week

Distance Education & Mixed Mode: theoretical learning to be completed at home with practical training at ACTI.


We know that everyone’s schedules are different. ACTI’s course options allow flexibility to balance work, family and study commitments.

Full time and part time options are available. Study full time for 3.5 days per week for 11 months, or part time for 2 evenings per week for 18 months. While learning hands on in the classroom, you’ll also compete training in our Student Salon where you will gain real-life industry experience performing management and administration tasks. Enjoy the perks of school holiday breaks that align with the ACT school holidays.


ACTI’s Student Salon is where you will practice and refine your skills for paying clients. You will be performing administration and reception tasks to ensure the salon runs smoothly. You’ll be providing services on a ‘not-for-profit’ basis and gain valuable experience treating real clients, while being guided by your educator.
