Where will a spa therapy diploma take these IBI students?

For professional spa therapists, no two workdays are identical. They enjoy a diverse range of fast-paced tasks, cruising to success in a number of exciting work environments. If you’re looking for a career that takes you far beyond the four walls of any office building, spa therapy training might be right for you. Are you a fun and friendly ‘people-person’ with a passion for helping others look and feel their best? The right training can set you on-track for the rewarding spa therapy career you deserve, in any of the following in-demand workplaces.

1. Local Day Spas Look for Well-Trained Spa Therapy Course Grads

Right within their own communities, our students find day spas looking to hire qualified spa therapy professionals. “Day spas come in a huge range of styles and personalities,” explains spa therapist and author Anitra Brown, “from small village day spas with two treatment rooms, to 35,000-square-foot extravaganzas with hydrotherapy tubs, Vichy showers and an elaborate spa menu.” If you become certified in traditional aesthetic services such as facials, body treatments, nail care, and waxing (and experienced with the latest and greatest tools and products on the market), you can have your pick of any local day spa work environment.

2. Spa Therapy Grads Help Clients Find Their Zen at International Resorts

Resort spas are like day spas, but clients stay overnight instead of just visiting for appointments throughout the day. Clients usually buy resort spa treatments ‘a la carte,’ charging them to the same account they use to pay for their rooms, food, and facilities in the resort’s lodging area. This means if you pursue this path, you’ll be paid by resort management and become part of a broader team of resort staff.

Resorts exist in exciting destinations all over the world! A spa therapist diploma can be your key into this luxurious and exciting employment field.

3. Spa Therapy Course Grads Can Work for Top Cosmetic Lines & Retail Stores

Every spa therapy course offered at IBI is dedicated to preparing people like you to succeed in the modern workforce. A growing sector of employment for our grads is the commercial cosmetic, skincare, and body care industry. Would you like to work on the frontlines of a leading cosmetic company, sharing your knowledge with those who need it most? Can you picture yourself as an expert behind the cosmetics counter, helping customers find the right product formulations for their skin types? This career path could be your perfect fit.

4. Making Waves: Spa Therapy Grads Are Hired by Leading Cruise Companies

You might be surprised that cruise ships often hire spa therapy graduates to climb aboard. The truth is, cruise ships are much like travelling resorts—spas and all. You could easily find yourself working in a cruise ship’s spa after graduating spa therapy school. Cruise ship spas have become multi-million dollar businesses, with every major cruise line worldwide outfitted with extensive spa treatment spaces. What better way to see the world than from a travelling spa? This career can be yours once you get your spa therapy skills in ship shape!

5. You Can Work from Home after Spa Therapy Courses

With spa therapy certification, your home can be your office. If you want to work from home and be your own boss, spa therapy training can make that possible.

I went to the International Beauty Institute and graduated last year from the Medical Aesthetics Diploma. I went to quite a few schools and attended interviews and information sessions, IBI being one of them…and I can safely say, I picked the right school!!! The staff are extremely polite, and helpful. It’s a fun-loving environment with the education you want! I had some of the best teachers, very knowledgeable and willing to go out of their way to help you out. I successfully opened a Med Spa since attending this school, and they helped guide me through the process! Thank you guys for everything you’ve done, couldn’t thank you all enough! Definitely the best choice I made!!
