Success Story

Jayne Courtland - Beauty Therapist

Jayne attended YCOB in 2019 and completed her ITEC, CIBTAC and CIDESCO in beauty therapy and massage level 2&3. After completing the course she went straight into the cruise industry. She worked in the spa as the only therapist who specialised in a treatment called Ionithermie. She travelled from Hawaii to Sydney stopping at Guarm, Vietnam, Kota in Malaysia, Bali, Darwin and Singapore.

“Working on a cruise ship was a dream come true for me, but without YCOB I definitely wouldn’t have been as confident to do it. With all the information and knowledge I gained doing the Cidesco course, I went in to train for the ships at an advantage. The kind of things they were teaching there, I’d already covered in my Cidesco, so I quickly advanced. Thank you to all the tutors who made my time at YCOB so amazing, I will be forever grateful to you all.“
