About Our Qualifications


All regulated qualifications carry an element of assessment. Cosmo Pro's approach to examining our learners is to make these assessments as close to the challenging situations within advanced aesthetics so practitioners are well equipped and prepared for real-life situations.

Having passed an external exam, employers and industry professionals know that our graduates have measured up against rigorous requirements in skill, product and treatment knowledge, personal presentation, and communicate which are vital skills and attributes for success in the demanding aesthetic industry.

Internationally Recognised

CIBTAC and NOCN are OFQUAL regulated awarding organisations, a UK government agency. This means that all our regulated qualifications appear on the UK framework and carry a Level (linking to the level of skills and knowledge needed to be successful in the qualification) that can then be compared with the frameworks of other countries.


Our qualifications follow the new Education & Training Standards and Competency Framework published by the JCCP which replaced the HEE framework.
