Interested in a new career? The Hong Kong based Langham Hospitality Group has launched its first Chuan Academy to train spa practitioners, and classes will begin in July 2013. Enrollment will be limited to 10 students to ensure a personal touch.

Certified by the British based ITEC, the Level 3 Diploma in Holistic Massage will last for 150 hours, comprising 50 hours of anatomy and physiology, 50 hours of holistic massage theory and practice, and 50 hours of professional conduct and business awareness.

“We believe in training,” says Brett Butcher, Chief Executive Officer of Langham Hospitality Group.

“Chuan Academy is dedicated to enabling success for current and potential spa professionals and we are keen to share what Chuan Spa does well and groom qualified spa therapists to work in one of our spas around the world. Our goal is to have 100 graduates and nine courses completed by 2015, and we will be offering other diploma and certificate courses in the coming years including Facial Care for men, beauty consultancy, and so on.”

The programme will not only train students to become professional spa therapists. They will also learn proven business strategies, operational knowhow, costing and relationship management, among other skills to ensure a long term future in the fast growing spa industry.
