MANY beauticians are not qualified to practise beauty culture and have gained knowledge in the trade through hands on experience.
Speaking during an Indian High Commission tour to the North on Saturday, National Training Productivity Centre's senior training officer Seema Agarwal said through the Fiji National University, beauticians could have a certificate, diploma and short courses in the art.
Ms Agarwal said the new centre concentrated on the art of grooming for beauticians, airline stewards and hostess would be opened next month at the FNU Namaka centre.
"FNU is catering for two new institutes that will be opening at the Namaka campus in Nadi which will cater for flight attendants and hostess and beauty culture," she said.
"So now whatever the dream of Fiji students, they can have their dream come true.
"As a senior trainer in the field I have had 28 years in this field and I will share my experiences with students through this course," she said
Ms Agarwal said students could call the Nadi centre in Namaka to get details of the course.
