Half-day training courses for persons in the cosmetology industry continue to be offered by the Department of Environmental Health (DEH).
This training is strongly recommended for all new personnel working in the cosmetology industry and anyone whose local certification (which is good for three years) has expired.
Hairdressers, barbers, tattoo and body piercing technicians, and other cosmetologists should attend one of these important workshops. Training will be held on the last Tuesday of each month, through November.
The dates are 27 September; 25 October and 29 November.
All sessions will take place from 9:00a.m. to noon at the DEH office in the Cayman Islands Environmental Centre, 580 North Sound Road. There is a $15 registration fee, which also covers the course literature.
The workshops educate operators on safe hygiene practices within the industry, including equipment sterilisation and disinfection; and preventing the transmission of communicable diseases. They also update participants on DEH guidelines for operating cosmetology establishments.
Business owners are encouraged to register their employees. For more information call DEH at 949-6696.
