The Trade test

To qualify as a professional hairdresser, you must complete a trade test. This happens once (and sometimes twice) a year. Qualitas Career Academy is an approved trade test centre.  The Qualitas Hair Design programme prepares learners for this, and provides real-life experiences on campus so that learners can be confident when that day arrives.
