THE NZCTWA PROVIDES A COMPREHENSIVE WORLD-CLASS TRAINING COURSE FOR IT’S MEMBERS
The training offered by the NZCTWA is solely for those already in the industry who wish to join the Association and become a NZCTWA Registered Practitioner… BECOME A MEMBER
The New Zealand Cosmetic Teeth Whitening Association (NZCTWA) does not train newcomers into the industry; such training and mentoring is usually provided by the Franchisor or equipment supplier who should train you in the correct and safe use of their particular system. Or, NZ based Training School for newcomers.
Because we have seen some serious outcomes, we strongly advise you not to buy a franchise or any equipment from any supplier who does not provide such ‘hands-on’ training & mentoring.
Particularly if the Vendor is based in China, India, Australia, or the USA – We consider DVD/Video/workbook training is unsatisfactory and inadequate as there are serious mouth conditions you need to be shown by an experienced trainer and taught what to do.
This is because there are numerous ‘cheap toy’ LED systems touted on the internet, some no more effective than shining an LED torch in someones mouth and therefore a total waste of your money.
Moreover, in our experience, only a few such suppliers give adequate training in the use of their system and this has been a cause of client complaints – THIS TAINTS THE ENTIRE INDUSTRY
That is why to become a NZCTWA Registered Practitioner your supplier must be able to supply you with a SUPPLIERS CERTIFICATE
What is even more concerning to the NZCTWA is cheap ineffective ‘non-professional’ systems produce poor results when compared to professional systems, hence, clients can be disappointed. There is a difference between Brightening teeth and Whitening Teeth. THIS ALSO TAINTS THE ENTIRE INDUSTRY. See – What to look for when buying equipment
