Enjoy a 'no-pressure' learning experience 

Our teaching methodologies were specifically designed to maximize your retention of the materials, to bring about the best learning outcomes possible.

This course is referred to as 'asynchronous', or 'self-taught'. It allows you to move through the program completely on your own schedule and at your own pace.  All course materials are available to you 24/7, on demand.  It is considered to be more of a cognitive educational experience, whereby you have time to contemplate and absorb the materials for better more longer lasting learning outcomes. 

Self-Assessments and Final Exam

After completing each one of the 6 modules, you will write and submit your Self Assessment for that module (we use these Self Assessments in place of assignment submissions).  Although these Self-Assessments are graded, their marks do not apply to your Final Assessment Exam; they are simply to help you gauge how well you grasped the materials you just covered.  

Upon successful completion of your course and Self Assessments, it will be time to write your Final Assessment Exam to achieve your CIBTAC Endorsed Certificate in Spa Management.


** Some of the supplemental materials for the course require Excel (our Spa Finances Program), Word and Adobe Reader

To enjoy this course to the fullest, you'll require:

Microsoft Office 2000 or greater and Adobe Reader, if you use Windows

Microsoft Office for Mac and Adobe Reader for Mac, if you use Mac

*IMPORTANT NOTE: We do not recommend you plan to take your entire course solely on your smart phone. Navigation through some parts of the course with a small screen will be difficult due the course's heavy content and numerous spreadsheets with audio tutorials.

Achieve your CIBTAC Endorsed Certificate in Spa Management

Upon successfully passing your Final Assessment Exam, you will be awarded your Spas2b / CIBTAC Endorsed Certificate in Spa Management. This achievement means your credentials are recognized as being among the highest business standards in the world, tailored to provide for the requirements of the international industry. 

You are now just steps away from making a very good career decision...
