So many experienced and skilled therapists want to branch out into the world of training, but just do not know where to start! 

If you haven't already, read this amazing eBook to help answer all your questions on how to set up an academy:

So how does it work?

Step 1: Choose how many manuals you want to start with. You can always buy more later as your business grows. 

Step 2: Choose whether you want PowerPoints to go alongside your manuals. 

Step 3: Choose from one of our paperwork packs. These packs contain all you need to be legally compliant. Our policies and procedures pack includes all the information needed for your students and to pass the accreditation process. Our full business paperwork pack includes not only our policies and procedures but all other paperwork and an easy to set up file system to record all your business data. 

Step 4: Choose to have your package come alongside accreditation or not. By including it in your start up pack will save you money over paying for it seperately. 

Once you place your order you will need to send us an email with your order number and the manuals and powerpoints that you want us to send over. 

What happens next?

Once we receive your order and the list of manuals and powerpoints you want, we upload these files to Dropbox, where you can instantly download them. Files are sent over within 2-3 days of receiving your order. 

Once you receive these files, please download and save them to your own computer straight away and keep a back up - just in case! Salon Expert are not responsible for replacing lost files after 30 days of purchase, so please keep your dongle safe!


Alongside your files, you will also recieve an email with access to an online portal for our partner accreditation company Centre of CPD Excellence. You will need to complete the questionairre on the portal within 30 days of purchase and email over copies of your certificates of qualification, your teaching qualification and your business logo. You can view this accreditation company here: 

Your accreditation takes 7-14 days to be approved. Once approved, you will be able to start teaching. Accreditation is for 12 months only and is renewable directly with Centre of CPD Excellence themselves. Renewal fees are as follows, and will be invoiced 12 months after accreditation acceptance: 

1-5 Courses - £199 
6-10 Courses - £349 
11-20 Courses - £549

Unlimted Courses -  £849 for 1st Year - £549 renewal fee.

Your renewal fee will be for the maximum number of courses you have listed. 

Frequently asked questions

Q - Can I edit the manuals and powerpoints?
A - Yes, infact we encourage this as it adds your own unique character to the manual. You can of course, just add on a logo or you can add, delete or edit any sections as you please. Files are downloaded in Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint or Microsoft Excell. 

Q - Can I give copies to my students? 
A - Yes, the manuals are designed for you to use and hand out to students on their training day. You can print off as many copies as you like. 

Q - Can I use these as part of a franchise or allow other trainers to use them for a fee? 
A - No, unfortunetly we do not have an option for this currently. The manuals are for you to use in your own centre or centres that you work from. 

Q - Will it be my own company? 
A - Yes, you will need your own company name and all the accreditation will be processed on your own business details. You are just purchasing the resources from us to get established. 

Q - Do I need to pay you a percentage of my profits or a per-student fee?
A - No, once you have ordered your bespoke package, there are no further fees, unless of course you choose to add more courses later down the line. 

Q- Who issues the students their certificates?

A - This will be done by you once the student meets your criteria for passing a course. These are easy to design in
