Note: The SIB70110 Vocational Graduate Certificate in Intense Pulsed Light and Laser Hair Reduction has not been transitioned to the Standards for Training Packages. The ARPANSA Regulation Impact Statement on Intense Pulsed Light Sources and Lasers for Cosmetic or Beauty Therapy, directly examines the role of qualifications in regulating this part of the industry and therefore Service Skills Australia are unable to commence work until this report is released.
