Having been a successful stylist and owner of more than 16 salon/spas, the creator of the Ottawa Academy noticed the need for Advanced Education in the Beauty field. Realizing that basic education was “not enough” he decided to enlist the help of top-notch educators and create a curriculum that not only met the standards, but allowed students to excel in the beauty industry.
Ottawa Academy ensures that each student is taught the techniques needed to quickly advance in their chosen field. Our highly trained and respected educators are constantly upgrading their skills to ensure training remains “ahead” and our curriculum content is constantly revised and additions are made.
Students learn by demonstration, visual aids and hands-on practice. As growth in this industry reaches new heights and new spas and salons open, our students are sought after to fill these positions. The beauty career is challenging and rewarding and personal growth has no boundaries. Graduates will have an abundance of employment opportunities – Spas, Salons, and Sales and Marketing, Cosmetic firms, Management, Ownership – to name a few.
The high quality of standards, the comprehensive courses and clinical practice ensures that graduates are well trained and highly qualified to commence their chosen career.
The Ottawa Academy is a modern up-to-date facility located in the Gloucester Centre, 1980 Ogilvie Road, Ottawa, Ontario. A short distance from St. Laurent Shopping Centre, a five minute drive from Orleans, and just off the Queensway make the school easy access. The O.C. Transpo Blair Station is directly attached to the Centre making commuting easy. Free parking is also available.
The school itself is brightly decorated and one immediately feels that they are in a salon or spa rather than a school. All of the most modern and sophisticated equipment is available and visual aids are noticed immediately. Students find the relaxed atmosphere beneficial in learning.
Allowing students the added benefit of practical application, students will gain experience in hands-on training.
