Industry professionals urged to undertake online skin cancer training

During the current lockdown period, Training Solutions Group is urging its members to undertake the MASCED (Melanoma and Skin Cancer Early Detection) accreditation programme.

Developed by national skin cancer charity, SKCIN, the online course provides hair and beauty industry professionals with the tools and resources to learn how to spot the early signs of skin cancer and confidently signpost clients to seek appropriate action.

The training, which launched in January 2018, now has more than 10,000 registered professionals and is endorsed by NHBF, HABIA and BABTAC (worth 2 CPD points).

Reviewed and supported by professional dermatologists, the MASCED online training programme takes around two hours and can be completed in your own time, on any device. Printed resources will also be sent.

The course costs £20 and Training Solutions Group students can currently take advantage of a 10% discount using the voucher code 'TRAININGSOLCON2020'. The company explain that all money derived from the programme is reinvested back into the charity to support their work.

Training Solutions Group is the appointed training provider for Salon System.
