We are able to offer this course at a fraction of the price to other beauty providers as we only take small numbers per class, keeping the costs down.

This is one of our top selling beauty courses, due to recommendations and word of mouth we are putting on more and more date choices and venue options to deal with the demand.

Do I need to bring a model?


You do not need to take a model with you as you will work with another student on the day of training. The class runs with 2 or more people booked on and you can book 24 hours before the start date if you wish. If you do not wish to be worked on due to medical reasons, sometimes the tutor can provide one if advised beforehand.

Spray Tan takes about 20 minutes to apply and can last for up to a week.

This treatment allows you to achieve an all over even tan, quickly and safely. It is a completely safe way to tan without tan lines and damage to the skin.

This half day accredited diploma course is open to complete beginners or existing therapists, no previous beauty or massage experience required to attend.

This is an insurable course allowing you to use this therapy with the general public and charge for it.

The course fee includes the materials/products used on the day so there are no hidden extras to pay.

About this course

This course is designed to give you the skills you need to start practicing as a Spray Tan Technician.

The certification we award allows a student to work with whichever particular brand they choose to purchase, as we teach effective and safe application of Spray Tanning.

This then allows students to make their own choice of brand and also means that they are not tied by any particular brand when it comes to their insurance, so should they ever have a problem and a claim is made and they have changed brand, they would still be covered.

Contents of the course

• Practical demonstration

• Practical on-going assessments

The tutor’s commitment to you

They are so confident that half a day is adequate for this course (due to the small numbers they teach) that if they feel you need to come back to repeat the course, you can do this free of charge.

Products used

Our beauty courses offer the opportunity to train in the technical aspects of application of the materials required for your chosen course, without losing valuable practical time trying to sell you products. We show you how to effectively use the product to achieve fantastic results that will build your client list and your business. Our certification is not brand specific.

This is very important as in some cases your insurance may be invalid if you train with a branded product detailed on your training certificate and you then change to another brand. This also allows us to offer our training courses at a lower cost, allowing you to spend what is right for you on the necessary products rather than buying unnecessary and costly equipment.

students are not authorised to teach this course unless through Gateway.

This is a practitioner diploma course allowing you to get insurance with this certificate and use with
the general public and charge for this therapy.
