What We Do

Established in 1977, CIBTAC was created from an identified need to provide relevant, high-quality training within the beauty, complementary & spa industry. We were founded, and continue to be run, by passionate industry professionals.

We are zealous advocators for issues affecting those working within the industry. We challenge poor practice, endeavour to educate the public on the importance of choosing a highly qualified therapist, and aim to inspire new generations to enter this rapidly growing international industry.
