GTi Course Information

The Serenity Spa Training School provide a high standard of professional training and education for massage, beauty and holistic therapy courses. You will receive your training from a Guild Accredited Therapy Lecturer, who has personal experience in a salon environment.

Serenity Spa Training School is situated in Dundee city centre close to bus routes and a ten minute walk from the train station. There is a car park a few minutes’ walk away.  As a small Training School, offering massage, beauty and holistic therapy training, we offer classes in groups of up to 6, which ensures lots of individual attention.

High Standard Of Professional Training And Education

If you are looking for a course, we offer the popular Body Massage, Hot Stones Massage, Indian Head Massage, Facials, Manicure, Pedicure, Anatomy & Physiology, Professional Standards, Starting and Marketing Your Business, and many more.

No previous experience is required to attend most of the one day courses, and there is no written exam.  We will be providing the practical element of your course.  The theory will be completed online, before you come to us.  The courses are insurable and will allow you to work professionally with the public, and charge for your services, either working mobile, at home, or in a salon or clinic.

One day is usually suitable for beginners, due to the small classes, however, if you do need to come back for more help, then this is free.


When you pass both your theory and practical elements, you will be awarded a recognised qualification, which will allow you to obtain insurance to practice the skills you have learned.

Courses can be provided on weekdays & weekends within The Serenity Spa salon.

Flexible Dates

Course dates are flexible, to suit your budget, and suitable for complete beginners, as well as experience therapists who are looking to update or modernise their qualifications and skills. Courses can be provided on weekdays & weekends within The Serenity Spa salon.


All GTi courses must be paid in full before the course commences. You can book and pay online, via PayPal, or we can send you an invoice to pay by direct bank transfer. If you would prefer to talk to us in person, call us, or send an e-mail.
