Government Funding Provision for Training in IPL/Laser Hair Reduction

Is your business currently suffering from skills shortage? Do you believe that if your staff gained further qualifications in advanced procedures such as IPL or Laser your business could benefit from potential business growth? If you do then help could be at hand.


The Aesthetics Practitioners Advisory Network Pty Ltd (APAN) has been invited by Service Skills Australia to become the lead organisation to apply for funding with the National Workforce Development Fund (the Fund). The purpose of this funding is to help businesses that have identified their current and future workforce development needs gain valuable financial support for the purpose of training existing employees to up-skill or to train new staff in advanced procedures through a co-contribution funding initiative.

The proposed qualification is the SIB701 Vocational Graduate Certificate in IPL and laser hair reduction.

If you believe that this initiative can help you solve some of your business needs, we encourage you to take the opportunity and benefit from this funding while it is still available.

Who will deliver the training?
We have enrolled several Registered Training Organisations to deliver the training for this initiative. The training cost vary slightly, but they are approximately $4300 to $4990 which is for the Vocational Graduate Certificate in IPL and Laser (SIB701). The government will pay 66 per cent of these fees and you will only be required to pay the balance of 34 per cent, which is approximately $1400 to $1697 per person. 

What else will I gain from the training?

Each applicant will receive a 12-month Gold Membership to APAN valued at $396. Within their kit members will receive numerous cost-saving benefits, support services and privileges. Some of these include new developments that APAN has negotiated specifically to benefit you in undertaking this initiative. 

What can I expect from the training? 
Your training will be delivered by a registered RTO. You can choose your preferred provider as indicated in the Application Form which can be downloaded from the APAN website.

What do I do to get started? 

If you would like to take advantage of this training opportunity please complete the application form and return it to APAN.  Application submission date is 30 April so they requite your application as soon as possible.  There are only 100 positions available for funding so it is important you act quickly if you wish to ensure your application will be included.
