There will be 600-750 hours of intense training. Centum Learning will also be hiring trainers for these courses in 18 cities who will have to undergo rigorous train-the-trainer programme to become certified trainers.

"India is witnessing a rapid growth in beauty and wellness sector due to increasing consumerism and changing lifestyles. We are seizing this opportunity to empower women by providing right skills that will allow them to find jobs or become self-employable," said Sanjeev Duggal, CEO and director Centum Learning.
