Gainfort Academy, Waterford
The word “Gainfort” has become synonymous with flair and excellence in the hair and beauty industry. For many years now, we’ve been supplying salons with their everyday needs and helping new establishments with their design and fit out. So it was only natural to take it one step further and open a state-of-the-art training academy.
Based in Wexford and Waterford, Gainfort Academy is fully equipped with the latest facilities and teaching technology. Our intimate classrooms and spacious amphitheatre are specially designed for a wide variety of courses, seminars and workshops for industry professionals and aspiring amateurs.
The Academy was recently selected in RSVP Magazine’s Elite selection of “Leading Beauty Schools in Ireland” for three years running and is a proud winner of the Wexford Business Awards Training Provider of the Year 2012, 2014, 2015 & 2016. Gainfort Academy is an ITEC and CIBTAC accredited training centre and an ETB official contracted trainer. We offer certificates and diplomas in Hairdressing, Barbering, Beauty Treatments, Beauty Therapy, Professional Make Up, Holistic Massage, Sports Massage Therapy, Reflexology and Nail Technology and Teacher Training.
Our past students have secured positions with Peter Mark, Aidan Fitzgerald’s, AC Pure, Cheveau Studio, Seafield Hotel Spa, Whites Hotel and Brandon House Hotel, to name but a few.
