Institute of Spa Management was set up in light of the rapidly rising development and innovative growth opportunities in the spa and wellness industry in the Asia Pacific region that have grown exponentially over the past several years.
Established in 2005 Institute of Spa Management was founded as a response to meet market demands for quality training and to raise, develop and uphold professional standards of the spa and wellness industry. It is dedicated to networking highly qualified spa professionals at all levels and developing their careers to ensure spa, hotel, and resort clients achieve a superior guest experience that far exceeds their expectations.
Institute of Spa Management is a centre dedicated to continual learning and training through formal education as well as practical, street-smart master classes and hands-on, project based workshops. All spa courses are conducted by world-class trainers, teachers and practitioners that are industry movers and shakers and global authorities in their respective areas of expertise.
We offer much-needed training and upgrading opportunities for the industry's stakeholders and expose regional stakeholders to an ample range of resources to stay up-to-date with changing times and emerging trends.
Institute of Spa Management curriculum is tailored specifically to supply the necessary skills to raise professional standards and to give appropriate recognition to the spa and wellness industry. While the programmes target industry players such as local and regional spa owners, managers and supervisors, it also aims to attract parties who are interested in gaining the necessary business knowledge and essential skills to stand out and succeed in today's fast changing global environment.
In 2006-2007, Institute of Spa Management proudly partnered with the prestigious Ivy League Cornell University for the first series of Spa Executive development programs in Singapore, Malaysia and Japan.
In August 2008, Asian Management Association (AMA), with the support of the Association of International Management (AIM) UK, awarded Asia Spa Institute with Prestigious Professional Enterprise Certification (PEC). The distinction marks Asia Spa Institute's unique position in Spa Training qualifying it to be an icon that commands respect and learning worthiness, and honors the professionalism and progressiveness of an organization.
