Your Career

Our students are serious about their careers. They have a bold vision about where they want their career to take them. ACTI’s purpose built facilities, experienced educators, and advanced courses enable our graduates to land their dream career and become leaders in the industry. We want to empower, inspire and motivate our students to become industry leaders, changers, and influencers. ACTI understands that graduates must be multi-skilled and demonstrate competencies in customer service, business management, and conflict resolution. Our graduates are taught to perform technically skilled treatments but also sales techniques, managing difficult situations, and computer skills. It’s important they understand what it takes to work in a team environment. Employers value soft skills as much as practical skills in the workplace and form part of our unique offering. The hours of learning offered at ACTI reflect real-life working environments to get you ready for the workforce.
