Cosmetology industry training courses are still on offer from the Department of Environmental Health (DEH).
The courses are open to all new personnel working in the field as well as to anyone whose certification has expired. (Certification becomes invalid three years after the last training date).
Hairdressers, barbers, tattoo and body-piercing technicians and any others working in related areas are advised to attend these important workshops.
As of last month, workshops are being held between 9a.m. and 12 noon, every last Tuesday of each month, except in December. The venue is the Cayman Islands Environmental Centre (DEH's location), at 580 North Sound Road. The $15 registration fee includes literature.
Departmental trainers structure the workshops to educate operators on safe hygiene practices within the industry. Participants will focus on equipment sterilisation and disinfection; prevention of communicable disease transmission, and updating participants on DEH guidelines for operating cosmetology-related establishments.
Business owners are encouraged to act now and register their employees. For more information call DEH on 949-6696.
