Beauty Services


2877, 2888


NZ Hair and Beauty Industry Training Organisation Inc (HITO) has extended the expiry dates of the unit standards listed above.


Date new versions published                                                          January 2016




The unit standards were designated to expire on 31 December 2016.


The Targeted Review of Qualifications (TRoQ) in the Hairdressing sector has resulted in a full review of unit standards and development of training and assessment resources.


It is expected that these processes would take some time and therefore it is necessary to extend the availability of the unit standards listed above to allow time for qualification candidates to complete the requirements of their programmes.
