1.2 Course overview

Our courses have been strategically designed to cater to all learning styles and build confidence as you work through the content. At AED, we don’t like to overcomplicate things and want your learning to be interesting, challenging and practical. In turn, our courses mirror the natural order of learning:

Understanding the theory behind your craft is absolutely essential for your own confidence so you can educate your clients. Rather than pages and pages of theory, we engage all your senses by including diagrams, images, videos and fun facts throughout! To learn more about each module, keep reading.

Module: The basics

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘you need to walk before you can run’? Well, this is true for learning as well. In any industry, it is important to have a solid grasp of where the industry was (the history) and where the industry is heading (emerging trends). Having this knowledge will help you to learn from past mistakes and to be able to stay on top of exciting new trends, which will keep your clients coming back!

In this module, you will learn all about:

  • The history of lash curls and tints
  • Current trends          
  • Lash enhancement process  

Module: Underpinning Knowledge

You will soon learn that creating the perfect lash lift and the colour is not a matter of simply applying products and hoping for the best; there is far more to it than that! Some of the information in this module may be a refresher for you, and other sections could be a totally new learning experience. Before we can begin applying chemicals to our client’s natural lashes, we must understand why we do things a certain way. Gorgeous lashes do not happen by chance – there are a lot of factors that sit behind achieving the perfect looks for our clients. In this module, you will learn all about:

  • Anatomy of the eye
  • Contraindications and contra-actions
  • Lash lift and tint 101
  • Treatment plan
  • Aftercare

Module: Tools of the trade and your kit

With all of the theory complete, this module gives you detailed information about the sorts of tools, products, and equipment you will use daily as a lash artist. We will look at a wide range of options so that you can be fully informed when making decisions about what products to purchase. We also look at what is essential when you are starting out. In this module, you will learn all about:

  • Tools and equipment you will need as a lash artist 
  • Products you will need
  • Disposables and consumables you will need in your kit
  • Workstation and treatment area

Module: Keeping you and your clients safe

Safety is absolutely essential when working as a lash artist. In this module, we will look at Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) legislation, requirements, and ways you can keep you and your clients safe. We have included a range of linked articles, videos and examples to help you remember all the components of WHS and how they apply.

In this module, you will learn all about:

  • Workplace health and safety basics
  • Keeping your clients safe     
  • Your own safety       

Module: Skills hub

For many of us, we learn by doing, so this module is where all the real fun begins! This module will put your knowledge into action, and you will begin to refine your skills and practice techniques.

In this module, you will complete the following practical activities:

  • Client preparation
  • Lash curling
  • Lash tinting
  • Finishing your services

Module: Client management

Without clients, we have no business! This module is designed to go through each stage of the lash enhancement process, looking at a range of ways that you can provide that little bit extra to clients to keep them coming back. You will also learn about how to price your services, calculate time for appointments, and how you can manage your inventory and equipment.

In this module, you will learn all about:

  • Lash enhancement process end to end
  • Calculating service price, product quantities and time
  • Building and maintaining client relationships


There is an old saying, ‘If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it’, which is why we have a range of assessments throughout this course so you can measure your progress. At the end of each module, you will be able to undertake a progress quiz. These quizzes will give you instant feedback and will help you identify any topics you may need to revisit.

In addition to quizzes, we have designed X assessment tasks in the skills hub to help you prepare for the workplace[OK1]  and be successful in your role. These submissions will be marked by our team of experts, and you will be provided with tailored feedback and guidance.

Our assessments are not long/boring essays; they are pieces of work (more tools for your business toolkit!). Rather than completing assessments, that you will never look at again, you can actually use what you create in this course in your own business. In each assessment task, you will apply your knowledge in a way that is creative, relevant and can even be a lot of fun!

No two clients are the same, and we know that no two students are the same. We believe that having assessment tools that allow our students to demonstrate their individuality is crucial for the learning process. It also helps to ensure the work you put into these tasks is meaningful and can be used in the real world. Once submitted, you will receive timely feedback from one of our experts. Then if needed, you can make changes to your submissions to ensure your business toolkit is the very best it can be.

There is no ‘pass or fail’ in our courses; you will either be satisfactory or not yet satisfactory. Not yet satisfactory means exactly what it says it does; you’re not there just yet. With the help of our team, we will provide you with all the guidance and support you need to achieve a satisfactory result. With the quizzes, you will have unlimited attempts to achieve a satisfactory result (100%), which means you can revisit the content and complete the quiz again as many times as you need!
