This Guild Training International course will teach you everything you need to know in order to carry out a professional facial treatment. The theory is completed online at home in your own time before a practical training session is taken. GTi gives you flexible learning designed to fit in around your lifestyle and full tutorial email support is available throughout your learning experience.
The GTi Facial Treatment course covers all the necessary anatomy and physiology so you do not need to hold a separate anatomy and physiology qualification.
The course is beautifully written and accompanied by images and a voice-over to give you the best possible learning experience.

Entry requirements

Membership of The Guild is a requirement for anyone enrolling on a GTi course. If you are not already a member and are not a qualified therapist you can purchase a student membership for £25. Student membership lasts for 3 months but there is no time limit for your course completion. However, if you do complete your course within 3 months and wish to upgrade to full membership then then the cost of your student membership will be deducted from the fees for full membership. 

If you are already a qualified therapist you have the option of either student membership or full membership.

The online GTi Professional Standards course must be taken alongside this course if you have not already completed this - there is no additional charge for this course. 

Duration of course

The time it takes to complete the course will depend on how quickly you learn and the number of hours per day you spend on your studies. GTi recommend 16 hours for the theory. Once you have completed the theory then 2 days of practical training and assessment can be arranged. There is no time limit for completing the course. Assessment takes place through online exams and practical demonstration.

Course fee

£290 - this includes a copy of the Guild's PDF manual, plus Guild membership fees as stated above in entry requirements.


On successful completion of the course you will receive a GTi certificate which you will be able to print out yourself. If you prefer, a certificate can be sent from Guild Training International at an additional cost of £18. This is fully accredited by the Guild of Beauty Therapists and the Guild of Holistic Therapists, a leading professional trade body, for membership and insurance purposes.
