Thank you to Geraldine and all the team at Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School for providing me with an excellent standard of education and caring about students. The CIDESCO course is suitable for students of any age, I was a mature student at 44 and my daughter Kristina was 18 years old when we trained in 2009. The course was intensive, both practically and theoretically with a constant emphasis on professional standards. Graduating from Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School as a Cidesco therapist gave us an opportunity to change our careers and lifestyle ... We moved to Melbourne in Australia, where I have been running my own skin clinic for the last 3 years and my daughter Kristina currently works in successful skin laser clinic. Its never too late to train, if you are motivated and willing to learn you will love what you do.

Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School taught me that if you truly love what you do you will never work a day in your life! Knowing that I wanted to be a beauty therapist from the age of 5, my dreams came true when I won student of the year in 2000. I have never looked back thanks to Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School. Thanks to Geraldine McGuigan and her team I was able to open my own business at the age of 20. Beauty therapy was in my blood and theytaught me my skills.I would definitely recommend the Bronwyn Conroy School of Beauty Therapy as employers recognise the high standard of training given.

My experience at Bronwyn Conroy Belfast was not only the best in private education, but one of inspiration and personal growth. The school fully equipped me to access the best graduate jobs available, and laid the ground work for me to have the confidence and skills to open my own salon. Now when employing staff myself, I definitely look for the high standards of training I received. The enjoyment I experienced in my working life today is due to the unparallel foundations received in my training, and continued links with the school.

Joining Bronwyn Conroy Belfast was a turning point in my life. The standards are so high and it stays with you forever. To learn so much in such professional surroundings was what made the start of my beauty career the best thing ever. This training was incredibly intense, testing commitment and dedication. Thankfully I succeeded and qualified with the bursting urge to get out there and put all my knowledge to good use. 12 years on I now run a busy salon employing 5 staff. Any training needed for my staff throughout the last 12 years I look no further than Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School as I can be confident they too will have high standards. Finding the career you have somuch passion for is an amazing feeling. I always had confidence in the beauty industry from day one, which I put down to the fantastic training provided by Bronwyn Conroy Belfast.

The Bronwyn Conroy beauty therapist will always surpass other beauty therapists. The training given here is superior to any other as their is so much attention given to detail in client care, comfort, hygiene and salon etiquette; Also a CIDESCO therapist will be more knowledgeable; As an owner of a small salon I would only employ Bronwyn Conroy beauty therapists as I will always feel at ease knowing that we all work to the same standard. We work well together as we have the same method to preparing treatment rooms, we provide quality treatments and deal professionally with our clients.

Geraldine McGuigan and her team are highly regarded within the beauty industry. I came from a banking background and joined the course with no previous experience whatsoever. I gained confidence and ability daily and 6 months after graduating I bought my own salon. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Bronwyn Conroy and would highly recommend this course to anyone considering a career in beauty. Thank you so much Geraldine for your continued help and advice.

I thoroughly enjoyed my CIBTAC/CIDESCO beauty therapy course and many of the short courses Bronwyn Conroy also provide. The training is of the highest standard and I always feel welcome to call or email Geraldine for advice. I now have my own salon and it would not have been possible without the training I received in Bronwyn Conroy Beauty school. My advice to anyone who is interested in a career in the beauty industry is to train with Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School in Belfast.

I have great appreciation to both Geraldine and Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School for what I have achieved in the last 11 years in the Beauty Industry. I attended The Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School in Belfast in September 1998. It was a very tough year in which I struggled a lot with the theory but thanks to Geraldine's encouragement and my determination I graduated in July of 1999. I opened my own Beauty Salon 'Secret Essence' at the age of 20 in 2001, followed by Slieve Gullion Springs Day Spa, Mullaghbawn in December 2007 both of which are going from strength to strength. Training at Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School gave me a deeper passion for make-up. So I followed on and completed an Advanced Make-up and a Fashion and Photographic Make-up Diploma.

Having just graduated from university I knew there was still a part of me that longed to be in the beauty industry, so with not a second thought I enrolled in Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School full time course. It was a tough year but if you have the passion for beauty you will sail through it along with the unlimited help from Geraldine and her team. The standard of training I received opened so many doors for me and I know will continue to do so in the future. I could not recommend this school enough. With my love for advanced treatments I now work and manage Therapie Clinic Newry and continue to expand my knowledge in the industry.

I cannot recommend Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School highly enough to anyone wanting to pursue a serious career in beauty. Geraldine and the school are very highly thought of within the beauty industry and it really has been an honour to say I trained with them. I graduated in 1999 and was amazed at how many doors were opened to me with the standard of the training I received. This gave me amazing confidence in myself and my work, and I soon became assistant manager in a prestigious day spa in Lisburn for the last 13 years, even having a beauty column in a local paper. After getting through to the final of Manicurist of the Year at the british beauty and spa awards held in London, 2009. I was offered the chance to become an educator for Gerrard International, and have since went on to recently become the regional area manager for the company, distributing Jessica nail care and Mii cosmetics throughout the UK.

In Ireland the name Bronwyn Conroy is synonymous with the beauty industry, and whenever I decided to train as a beauty threapist the Bronwyn Conroy school in Belfast was the obvious choice. From the outset I knew that I had madethe right decision. Geraldine was the consummate professional in everything that she did, and she strives to instil this professionalism in every student that passes through the school. Since graduating in 2000 I have foundthat merely mentioning the fact that I trained at Bronwyn Conroy has opened doors for me. In this time I have owned my own salon and worked as a representative for a leading skin care distribution company. Finally in 2007 I returned to the school as a lecturer. I would have no hesitation in recommeding the school to anyone who wants a career in the beauty industry.

I would highly recommend this school to anybody interested in pursuing a career in beauty therapy. I am proud to say that I am a graduate of Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School, Belfast! After graduating from Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School in 1999 having completed my CIBTAC and CIDESCO training I began my career as a beauty therapist. The training Ireceived at Bronwyn Conroy was excellent and because I learnt so much from the school I was able to open my own salon in 2001 at just 19 years old! Now 11 years later I am still running a successful busy salon B Beautiful; in Irvinestown Co. Fermanagh. I firmly believe the standard of training I received all those years ago as well as the school ethos of hard work and perfection has had a big part to play in my success.

I always wanted to be a beauty therapist and in my eyes there was only one place to go, Bronwyn Conroy, and the school lived up to its reputation. The standards expected from Geraldine and the staff at the school are extremely high but it is because of these standards that you become the best beauty therapist you can possibly be. The beautyindustry is fast paced, ever evolving and customers will only accept the best. Studying at Bronwyn Conroy will give you all you need to excel in the beauty;industry. I loved every minute of it and often think back to the good times I had in those classrooms with find memories. That was back in 2001. I worked as a beauty therapist for 9yearsincluding working with Geraldine in her salon. I am now in beauty retail and I still use what I learned at Bronwyn Conroy everyday.

I wanted to be a highly skilled beauty therapist with a qualification to be proud of so I chose Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School to do my CIDESCO qualification. Studying in a professional and high tech environment with experienced tutors meant I very quickly gained knowledge in the latest treatments techniques. The course was delivered at a challenging pace, but Geraldine and her team always made sure it was delivered in an enjoyable and friendly way. I was amazed at how quickly I learned and felt confident and competent within a very short time. Because a CIDESCO qualification from BCBS is so highly regarded within the industry, I found employment at a 5 star spa immediately after graduating. I now run a successful business on the north coast offering high end treatments as well as a nail bar within a fashion boutique two days a week. I could never have dreamed I would have such a fulfilling and varied career in beauty industry. Inspired by my time at Brownyn Conroy and am just about to embark in some further training to become a tutor in beauty therapy.

My experience with Bronwyn Conroy truly was the best decision I made, as far as private beauty training goes Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School it is by far a standard above the rest and I speak from the heart as I truly enjoyed my time studying there.  I studied the full time CIBTAC and CIDESCO course over 10 months and the tutors were there to help in every way possible.   I have been a beauty therapist for almost 4 years, after I graduated I worked for Steiner cruise ships across Australia and now manage a successful salon.  Bronwyn Conroy gave me the skills to to succeed with professionalism and to a high standard and I truly love my job.  This is all thanks to Geraldine and her fantastic tutors, they gave me so much encouragement and I can't thank them enough.

Geraldine McGuigan and her team at Bronwyn Conroy are extremely professional and expect very high standards from their students, because of this I graduated with Honours in 2004. I always had a passion for nails and make-up; after being made redundant I decided I needed a career change. I already had a degree in business and I wanted a beauty course that equalled it so I enrollled on the  CIBTAC Beautician course. At the age of 38, I opened my own salon and I am proud to be entering my 10th year in business.
