Accreditation recognises your training courses and academy of a set standard to the highest level.

This allows you to accredit your courses and use our seal of approval on your students certificates and marketing.

Gaining accreditation means your students will be able to gain insurance from our insurance partners worldwide.


Accreditation will show potential students your materials are of a set standard and that your qualifications have been verified.


Students are looking for peace of mind and accreditation can help with this. 
It shows that you are a professional educator and take your role as an educator seriously.

 You MUST have a valid teaching qualification before you will be covered by our accreditation or any of our insurance partners, by not having a teaching qualification you could invalidate your insurance.


If you don't have a teaching qualification we would recommend completing our Beauty Educators Diploma.

This will gain you the required qualification needed to apply for BIA accreditation.

Rest assured, your Fully Covered!

BIA accreditation is recognised by multiple insurance companies worldwide.

Have peace of mind knowing you can gain training insurance through our trusted providers.
