•    For the purpose of induction
•    When deciding on length of probation
•    During performance reviews
•    When trouble shooting
•    Support when deciding on staff promotions

What is tested during a PPCSE?

Founder and Chief Executive of PHAB Standard, and former leading industry trainer, Nergish Wadia-Austin commented, “Today's trading climate highlights the need for improved standards in customer service and it is often this area that separates businesses from their competitors.

The PPCSE result can be printed off immediately and should someone fail it, they will be guided to all the relevant independent industry courses listed on the PHAB Standard website by the best in our industry. Salon/Spa Managers who are present during the time the exams are sat will get a clear idea of the strengths and weaknesses of an individual's ability to perform.”
