WITH her own beauty business running smoothly, it was time for Angela Whittaker to branch out and add to her skill set.

The qualified beautician had been wanting to take a hairdressing course for years to expand her business.

And that's where CSaT came into play.

CSaT is a training organisation in Rockhampton that offers accredited courses in hairdressing, beauty and nail technology.

Angela is two weeks into her Certificate III in Hairdressing and says that the hands-on experience has been great.

The 28-year-old attends the training salon on Upper Dawson Rd and is already getting her hands on some practical experience with clients.

"The best part has been getting to work with people," Angela said.

The training salon, which opened in 2011, lets students get first-hand experience and practice under their belt, before or while they are undergoing an apprenticeship.

The hairdressing course will take Angela from 12-18 months to complete, which will let her add hairdressing to her at-home salon.

For more information on CSaT and the organisation's available courses, phone 0417005239 or email admin@csat.com.au.
