Hi I have done this course its irish certificate really if you want to work in a salon you should be doing ITEC , CIBTEC and the most important one is CIDESCO I also have City & Guilds. CIDESCO is want any employer will really ask for its internationally recognised.ITEC would be too basic and you might not get employment from it. Hope that helps

I'm hoping to start one after the Wedding, probably in Dunlaoire College or Bray College. ITEC ones are meant to be great
