  1. Farrah Warraich

    Amazing, exciting course. Course had great content- everything you need to know. Carolyne explained things beautifully. Anything I was unsure on, was run through in detail. She teaches so well, and it is very easy to pick things up from her. Assignments were very thorough, we covered a lot. I will 100% return to study further courses.

  2. Gail

    Excellent teaching. I felt very comfortable with Carolyne. Really great support from the Omni team.

  3. JP

    Perfect! Have left feeling a confident therapist. Learning from someone who has clear passion on the subject is a delight. Excellent teaching within a mixed ability group. Cant wait for the next course. Great job team!

  4. Michelle Wilson

    I had suffered from several health issues, which resulted in me having hormonal problems and caused excess facial hair so I decided to have electrolysis sessions.
    Reflecting on the treatments I was receiving, it got me thinking there was a great need in my City to help and support others with the same predicament, at which point I had a lightbulb moment and this initiated great excitement.

    I reached out to a few training providers and Omni Academy kindly responded to me the next day! I immediately rang a lovely woman called Rianna Farbey, who was very professional and friendly and explained everything they could offer me. I was bursting with excitement. The course included one-to-one tutoring with Carolyne Cross, another fantastic teacher. A few days later, I had enrolled, paid and started the course.
    The course is very thorough and challenging and homework is necessary. Most of the course is delivered live and online, meaning I could learn from home. I only had to go to the Omni Academy to carry out the practical assessments and theoretical exams. This was done over a 3 day period, which was intense, but I really enjoyed working with the real life clients.
    The staff and team at the Omni Academy are amazing, very professional and very competent in delivering the course materials. I would recommend this Academy to anyone wanting to advance a skill you already have or start a new one like myself. The website is amazing, and you can follow them on Insta/Facebook. Learning on-line was a fantastic experience.
    I’m now getting ready to launch my new business as a Electrologist and I couldn’t be happier!

    I found the length of the course perfect as it was plenty of time for theory and practice.
