Turn to Australian College of Hair Design and Beauty for nationally recognised training

The Australian College of Hair Design and Beauty (ACHDB) is Melbourne’s leading provider of Hairdressing, Beauty/Spa and Make-up training. We provide all of our students with continuous “Real Life Work Experience” in our very well-known and trusted Student Hair & Beauty Salons.

The College is situated amongst a multitude of cosmopolitan cafes and chic boutiques on Flinders Lane, in the heart of Melbourne’s fashion precinct. The CBD location of The Australian College of Hair Design and Beauty’s main campus ensures students easy access via train, tram and bus. The College also has another campus in Shepparton, Victoria.

The ACHDB delivers courses from the National Hairdressing, Beauty and Make-up Training Packages. The College is accredited to the highest standards of both industry and government and offers flexible training options, so as to suit the individual needs of students. The College delivers courses to students of all ages and nationalities.

Students are taught the latest techniques in hair and beauty by expert instructors in intimate, interactive classes within an ultra-modern learning environment.

An important part of this practical training is the requirement of students to perform a wide range of hairdressing and beauty services on members of the public.

With government subsidised training courses commencing in 2014, contact us on (03) 9654 7130 and enquire about our nationally recognised places to start a career in hair design and beauty today!


Proud to be delivering nationally recognised training

Training. gov. au is the official National Register on VET in Australia and is the authoritative source of information on training packages, qualifications, accredited courses, units of competency, skill sets and Registered Training Organisations (RTOs). Courses on the National Register may only be delivered by an RTO and qualifications issued must bear the Nationally Recognised Training (NRT) logo. The College went through rigorous re-registration processes late last year and has been approved for a further 5 years of registration to 2018 – delivering nationally recognised courses across Victoria.

Please view the College’s page on the Training Register (Provider ID: 3580) for a list of courses on College scope. You will find all Certificate, Diploma and Graduate Certificate courses delivered at the College are on the register and are therefore nationally recognised courses. Our qualifications bear the Nationally Recognised Training (NRT) logo.

National VET Regulated (NVR) Registered Training Organisations (RTOs)

The College is registered as an RTO and complies with extensive government regulations to maintain registration. This involves internal and external audits and regular reporting to a variety of government organisations and the National VET Regulator. The College is proud of its performance in meeting its obligations as an RTO and its success can be measured by fantastic audit results and an extended government funding contract beyond the standard one year term.

Places in Government-subsidised courses – Now Available 2014-2016

The College is pleased to be able to offer government subsidised places, through The Victorian Training Guarantee program, for Nationally Recognised courses on its scope of registration. The College is currently approved for funding for government subsidised courses commencing 2014 through to 2016.
