Our Company

The Advanced Skills Academy was founded on the basis of excellence.

In 1996, Cosmetic Physician Dr Doug Grose launched Australian Skin Clinics in Ashmore, Queensland, building a well-known brand and developing leading skin care range ASAP. In 2007, the company was sold to Deb Farnworth-Wood who grew the brand from a single site, to more than 30 clinics across Australia. The company has enforced strict service standards and compliance with quality treatment protocols, cementing itself as a leader in the highly competitive industry.

Training has always been a pivotal part of the company’s strategy for quality assurance, and is a reason aesthetic hopefuls and professionals have flocked to the company for training and recruitment opportunities.

Fast forward, and The Advanced Skills Academy was founded to:

  • Deliver training courses that are not available with other training providers in the marketplace – practical courses where beauty and aesthetic therapists can become qualified in dermal and laser practices so they are clinic-ready and more attractive to prospective employers.
  • Deliver management and leadership courses that include interactive learning opportunities to upskill professionals, managers and more.

Our motto is simple.

We deliver learning with a difference:

Your pace   Your learning style   Your environment   Your career

Your journey, with our guidance.
