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.

The Advanced Skills Academy is the exclusive training provider for Australian Skin Clinics and maintains very close industry ties with over 43 clinics throughout Australia.

Our motto is simple.

We deliver learning with a difference:

Your pace   Your learning style   Your environment   Your career

Your journey, with our guidance.
